    Gorgeous place to visit for lunch or afternoon tea. Loved the attention to detail in the children’s tea & the homemade cake was something else.

    Lovely tasty sandwich. Large variety of sandwiches available. Plentiful afternoon tea. Everything in keeping with the theme. Good attention to detail. Misunderstanding over tea. Party of 7 understood it to be a one free refill of hot water . Need to be clearer what’s included in the afternoon tea, or when the tea option is extra, as otherwise we would of made different decisions and saved £14. Especially as you have to prebook afternoon the customers won’t be reading the menu should you have this information on there.

    Very nice food, drink and atmosphere. I enjoyed the latte and the sandwiches and cakes from the afternoon tea. I had to.request for all items from the list online again, so I felt there was no point of booking online. Overall nice experience.

    Lovely concept of Allice in Wonderland , decor reflects the story. Differant afternoon tea choices , nice to have a savoury, though thought that they could have run to both types of scones rather than choose one or the other ! Serving staff little inexperienced - out of Breakfast tea so just substituted Earl Grey without checking . Overall nice afternoon tea

    I booked an afternoon tea for a relatives birthday and was pleasantly surprised at the quirky Alice in wonderland themed cafe. We arrived slightly early but were seated straight away and we ordered drinks. There is both indoor (airconditioned) and outdoor seating.The decoration was lovely and the facilities were nice and clean. Every staff member was helpful and welcoming. And never once made us feel rushed during our visit. The sweet treats we had were absolutley delicious! And a big quantity per person. The fruit scones fresh and still warm!....yum! There was a wide selection of drinks. And even an opportunity to purchase Alice in wonderland themed clothing and cakes to go. The only critasism would be to maybe add a selection of sandwich choices as some people do prefer plain options. But overall a really lovely cafe and would recommend to anyone. I will certainly be returning both with friends and next time, my children! Thank you for a lovely afternoon :)
