Restaurant description

A chic pop-up dining hotspot in London, Sanderson showcases eclectic international indulgences in a year-round summery setting. 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 books, 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 ham and 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-themed cocktails 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.

    Fantastic food, service and atmosphere from start to finish! It was a really great experience and will be hard to beat.

    The service was slow throughout and quite unorganized as had to ask for the glasses of champagne a few times once our sandwiches etc had come out. Also we were given a tea cup with lipstick on and when we asked for a clean one there was no apology from the waitress. Mentioned all the issues to the manager and explained we wouldn’t be paying the service charge which he agreed with and was also very apologetic about all the issues we experienced. Might have been a nice touch to maybe take a glass of champagne or two off the bill but he was very apologetic.

    Amazing tipsy afternoon tea, food was delicious, great service, even offered a complimentary glass of fizz. Only negative was that they had outdoor heaters and weren't put on, we were offered blankets unsure if they had a fault? Slightly chilly sitting out towards the end.
