More about Afternoon Tea at Sanderson

A chic pop-up dining hotspot in London, Sanderson showcases eclectic international indulgences in a year-round summery setting. At the luxurious 5-star Sanderson Hotel, the buzzing Long Bar and the exquisite courtyard garden bar serve up fresh, exotic cocktails whilst the Mad Hatter's Tea Party at Sanderson offers a unique twist on the classic afternoon tea.

Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, menus are hidden inside vintage bookcases, kings and queens adorn teapots, and speciality sandwiches are served on plates decorated with birdcages, carousels and ticking clocks. Savoury treats include the goats’ cheese croquet monsieur, and white crab eclairs.

Completing the experience, sinful scones are joined by a red velvet ladybird cake and coffee-flavoured pocket-watch macarons. . The star attraction, however, is the collection of Sanderson-exclusive teas, featuring China Black Tea infused with hints of blackcurrant, vanilla, caramel, citrus, bergamot, blue cornflowers and blue mallow flowers.

Diverse flavours and eclectic recipes make Sanderson in Fitzrovia a favourite in London’s fashionable West End. Goodge Street Tube Station is a 6-minute walk away.

We did enjoy the experience we had a little trouble hearing our waitress as spoke very quiet. The tea was usual in good sort of way. A good atmosphere. Savoury dishes we should of explained that my husband and I don't eat fish that was our fault . The lime bread with cream cheese and cucumber was very good. Cake selection brilliant. It's was a treat for my daughter as she is getting married soon in six weeks. They did a lovely slate board with congratulations writing in white chocolate and a cake. A really nice touch. The service charge I was shocked how much we had to pay 15 percent. That added £35.55 ton the bill.

Very nice setting and the choice of tea was good. I'd recommend the 'mad hatter'. Lovely selection of sandwiches and nice to have the smoked salmon scotch egg as a change. Also nice to be offered more sandwiches. The scones were lovely as were the mini cakes and sweet treats.The mango 'drink me' was very tasty. We also really enjoyed the little ice-cream with chocolate soil and honeycomb. We got a Sanderson cocktail included which wasn't particularly to my taste, but I'm not a great alcohol drinker and maybe that was the reason. The only downfall for me was that I had booked for my husbands birthday and our waitress asked if we were there for a special occasion to which we told her. Other people in the restaurant were served a special piece of cake with a birthday message but my husband didn't get one. Although you don't go with something extra in mind it's a little disappointing that everyone wasn't treated the same.

Wow, from booking, exceptionally easy, to the entire experience I can't fault it.
Met with smiles and cheery staff, lovely table that took your breath away.
Everything explained well. Smelling tea and making up your mind was fun.
Food? A treat for the eye and the mouth, waiter attentive and ensuring you had everything, asked if you required more or not.
Sweet stand, wow, struggled to eat everything and so what was left was put in a lovely box to take home, again asked if we would like more as we were eating.
Then as a thank you we had passion fruit ice cream in a terra cotta pot with chocolate crumb topping!
Thank you for a wonderful experience.

So good. This set me back a few but I would come back Ina heartbeat. A great location for me to bring my 29 and 22 year old sons for the first High tea. Something they will remember
