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 enjoyed the Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea. It was an indulgent treat. Lovely Alice in Wonderland touches helped the experience to be even more enjoyable, such as the delicious drink-me-potion! Every mouthful was delicious, tasty, creative and fun. Definitely not your traditional afternoon tea, but an experience in itself. We had plenty of time to relax and enjoy the food without being rushed and the garden setting was delightful.

Amazing experience. Food was excellent and a super theme "Mad Hatters afternoon tea". Value for money. Lots to eat. Lovely ambiance and staff very attentive.

My grandaughter and I had a wonderful Hatter's Tea Party. The food was very cleverly thought out and far more than you could eat. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

Very nice cakes and tea. Service was very slow, seemed unwilling to bring more food over despite coming over to ask if we would like more food. When asked for more sandwiches these seemed to be forgotten and were eventually brought over after we had eaten our cakes. When we were offered more cakes, requested a couple more each but were only brought over one portion.

Tipsy afternoon tea at The Sanderson Hotel looked absolutely amazing, but unfortunately it really didn't taste good. The cocktails were amazing and the presentation was great, it's just a shame it didn't live up to the promise!

However the setting was lovely, in the courtyard next to the pond, on a lovely summer evening, really stunning.

There were 4 small savioury foods to start, two of which were fish. As neither of us eat fish they replaced them with grilled vegistable roll and an avacadoe paste cornet. Both of which were horrible. The waitress brough over the sweets without asking if we would like more savouries (which they had the year prior) then brought over the finishing ice cream before asking if we wanted more sweets (again they had done last year). The waitress didn't really seem concerned if we're enjoying the food and just wanted to get the process over and done with quickly. I would of given the mad hatter tea 10/10 last year but this year just a 6/10

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, the Sanderson is a very opulent Hotel, while we waited for our table we were allowed to use the foyer and purple pool table.
The Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea was magical, all the tea choices were beautiful, the savoury food varied and tasty, all my grandchildren from 5 - 17 found lots of tasty treats. When the sweet treats arrived on a three tiered cake stand, it was like being transported to wonderland, so much detail in all the cakes and sweets. We really did not want it to end.
Would highly recommend this hotel and afternoon tea.
Service was excellent.
