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.

    Great afternoon 3 of us - the food was so clever - wobbly cake stand and lots of nods to Alice in Wonderland. The tea was very special - delicious. A very special start tp the festive season. For £40 a head I thought it was good value - even had a cocktail included. Excellent waiting staff and no one rushed us. Generous number of cakes and sandwiches.

    Disappointing. Sitting outside in November - really ? One friend was cooking under the glare of a heater and the rest of us were freezing underneath blankets. Very small table for 5 people. Once the food came out there was not an inch to spare. Service was excellent. We were charged £5.50 for water out of a refillable bottle which was beyond ridiculous. The theme was very low key. If the tea had not been given a title, you would have been none the wiser.

    Unfortunately our Mad Hatter's afternoon tea was interupted by a serious security alert in London which resulted in being in lockdown in the hotel for a few hours so unable to comment fully as we did not finish it, but was very good until this point.

    The service was fantastic however I came to the mad hattet tea back in 2014 & the standard of the actual tea itself was much higher then. The sandwiches were terrible with little variety & there used to be a much better selection of cakes/mini deserts. I was very dissapointed

    We were ignored. Our table was booked for 2pm and by 3pm all we had been given was a glass of water. When we finally got a cup of tea we were not given any milk. The manager did apologise and provide us with complimentary champagne, wine and discounted our bill but our afternoon tea experience was spoilt. The food wasn’t wonderful either and as for the mad hatters theme, you wouldn’t have noticed the difference.

    Great venue! Food is quite average and not really worth the £48 (plus £7 service charge per person for a group of 8!). Macaroons and scones were nice but everything else was quite average. I expected more for the price we paid- I think you're paying for the theme and venue rather than the food. A bit disappointing.

    The afternoon was a great experience for my wife and daughter .the food was outstanding and the attention to detail excellent

  • ((((( 1 November 2017 by Susan Legg from reigate

    From the welcome on arrival to receiving our coats at departure, the entire experience was superb. The staff are delightful and attentive and cannot do enough for you, and the food is mouth wateringly delicious. You are invited to try as many of the teas, coffees, or hot chocolate as you like, and extra sandwiches etc are offered. You would need a large appetite not to be absolutely satisfied. We were asked if it was a special occasion, and I mentioned it was my Daughters birthday, and at the end of the meal they brought her an individual cake with a candle. A lovely and thoughtful gesture to round of the most special afternoon experience.Thank you to one and all.
