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.

    We were lucky to be sat in the courtyard which was wonderful. Service was attentive without being overbearing (staff were young & enthusiastic). The food was incredible! Our favourites were the Quail scotch egg and timepiece macarons but it was all very fresh and looked & tasted amazing. Would highly recommend this as a special treat for anyone!

    Afternoon tea with cocktail- fabulous. Warm welcome and lovely food and drink.

    Well below our expectation. First, the communication skills of the administrative staff were very poor. Secondly, the table that was offered was most unconfortable with a broken metal chair. We had to request a another table. The Mad Hatter tea was not as magical as we expected. There are better places in London to go for a tea. We will share our experience with our friends.

    Mad Hatter is a charming place although the service could be improved. We were checked with only once during our 2 hr stay and were unable to catch anyone’s eye for the drink that we had ordered for after our meal or water refills.

    I had the Mad Hatter Afternoon Tea. It was a very good experience - great food, nice atmosphere, great variety of teas. The opportunity to smell the teas on offer was both novel and useful. I liked that the tea could start as early as noon, eliminating the afternoon tea conundrum of whether to skip lunch beforehand or dinner afterwards. The service became a little hit and miss once the venue became quite busy. Most of the patrons appeared to order the Mad Hatter Tea. That said, the wait staff were friendly and tried to please.

    The food was amazing and the staff were very kind. They explained the whole menu to us and let us decide what we’d like to have.
