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 book, kings and queens adorn teapots and sandwich plates decorated with zebras, birdcages and ticking clocks.

The Mad Hatters afternoon tea menu features delectable savoury bites, including smoked salmon quails egg with caviar and cream cheese, and melt-in-your-mouth King of Hearts parmesan croque-monsieur stack.

Completing the experience, come face to face with Tweedle Dee’s lemon and curd financier before enjoying the mocha chessboard gateau and with the Mad March Hare vanilla pocket watch macaroon, there’s no excuse to be late for this important date! Wash everything down with Alice’s cinnamon, apple and peach “Drink Me” potion and for the afternoon tea traditionalists, finish up with warm scones clotted cream and fruit preserves.

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.

    For the price we thought the quality of food overall was lacking and the cocktail weak. We had a nice time but for £100 with service included would not recommend to friends.

    I've had friends who enjoyed this very much but it was not for me. It's a dated and tired hotel which has been updated by a few object d'art. There are so many fantastic places in London, that are so superior to this. The tea (tipsy) was too sweet and lacked flare and the cocktails were just tasteless. They did a birthday cake for us but it didn't arrive till we asked for the bill. Give this a miss.

    This was a gift find my daughter for her 30th birthday and it didn't disappoint. Lived all the food and teas. A shame that the weather wasn't great and being outside th e girls got a little rained on but we laughed through it

    Our table was ready on time, and staff were very welcoming so we had a relaxing afternoon although staff were rushed off their feet as it was a busy Saturday. We had to prompt them on occasions to bring things. The tea of sandwiches and cakes was lovely (and you can ask for seconds!) but the scones which came later were disappointing as they were hard, and the jam was too runny. The cocktails (extra) are divine.

    Good food, average service, good ambience

    I booked the Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea for a friend's birthday - it was a fantastic experience from start to finish! The location was lovely, an indoor/outdoor vibe in a pretty courtyard. All the little details really made the meal wonderful: the menu inside the vintage book, the tiny "Drink Me" bottles filled with colourful and fragrant teas, the crockery with its beautiful designs, and the amazing food! The savoury sandwiches were delectable, the sweets were delicious! Beautiful and tasty. My very favourite thing was the macaron pocketwatch! Delightful.

    Lovely fun & unusual tea. Good service. Tasty food. A discount is given for a child's tea but no changes to sandwiches etc - only thing I would change is some more child friendly sandwich options.
