More about Mad Hatter's 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.

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.

Enjoyed the themed food, however thought the service charge was quite high!

The attention to detail in the desssert was absolutely fantastic. Salty entrees were very good but not spectacular.
attention and service were very good.
There ia big difference in the ambiance if you are sitting in the court yard or inside (tall chairs) so try and be seated outside for the feeling of properly ser tea.

I have been lucky enough to sample some incredible afternoon tea experiences in London but this was by far the worst., the tipsy tea package. Lack of service during the whole night but the food was dry and tasteless. I even discovered a piece of cooking tissue in my sandwich. I was very dissapoinged by the whole thing. So many great options to try in London I'd avoid this place!

Extremely disappointed.
A strange experience, mad hatters afternoon tea whilst sat in a gazebo with absolutely no Alice/Mad Hatters theme? The surrounding were drafty yet filled with out door heaters so quite uncomfortable. The restaurant was empty yet all diners were sat in adjoining tables. The couple next to us were so close they really were part of our table.
The food quality was poor, the sweets were exceptionally sweet and would probably be best enjoyed by children.
Service was average at best.
As a group of five our bill was £465 which included their 15% discretionary service tip. We did not leave 15%.
