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 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 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.

    This is the eighth time I’ve been to the Sanderson for Mad Hatters and honestly it’s lost it’s charm.

    The dishes are now mass produced and lack the original flair. The sandwiches were fine but basic.

    The marmalade sponge was rock hard.

    The teas have improved and for anyone going who has a sweet tooth, I’d recommend the Cheshire Cat Tea.

    I won’t be going back following this disappointing visit.

    Staff are great.

    We had the Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea, thought the theme of Alice in Wonderland was amazing from selecting our flavoured tea to the presentation of the sweet and savoury cakes and sandwiches. Also the scones with jam and clotted cream,and the wonderful small flower pot filled with ice cream and chocalate soil decorated with a pansy. There was even a potion saying drink me which was peach flavoured.

    Wasn’t overly impressed with the sandwiches. Far too many fish options.
    Cakes were of great selection and one scone each.
    The theming was great, although the tables were VERY close together.

    To be honest for the money I was not impressed. Very small portions and food was not overly tasty and I was expecting more of a theme. Overall disappointing.

  • ((((* 21 February 2018 by Jon Crooke from West Sussex

    Enjoyed the whole thing. Staff very polite & friendly nothing too much trouble. The choice of cake and sandwiches was delicious and you can ask for more. Only one mention , ceiling heating was too hot in the conservatory. Didn’t spoil it though.

    Booking service excellent
    Service excellent
    Food is so bad that I can’t even rate it.
    Never tasted anything as bad as this.
    The only thing that reminds you of a Mad Hat is the name of the tea and teapots.
    So boring and not a thing to write home about.
    The worst experience I had.

    More choice of sandwiches would be lovely. Staff helpful and friendly.

    I was so excited to be taking my friend here for her birthday but it turned out to be such a huge disappointment, it was honestly the worst afternoon tea I've ever been to and ridiculously overpriced. The tiny stack of three ham and cheese croque monsieur were cold and the toast hard so didn’t eat them. The cornish crab bridge roll looked lovely but the roll was stale so they were replaced but these were stale too. The cucumber and cream cheese finger had so much cream cheese in it made it soggy, I couldn’t eat it.

    This hotel certainly didn’t have a 5 Star feel about it and the toilet facilities were more like 3 Star, plus you have to walk all the way back through the hotel past reception and up 2 flights of stairs, so avoid going during your afternoon tea.

    Very expensive for what you get, I’d go to The Ritz and get an amazing afternoon tea for less.

    Wouldn’t go back , sandwiches were stale , the Toasted ones were only half toasted almost like they got put in the oven/ toaster altogether , so the top one was the only one actually toasted , we were sat at a tall bar table on a wobbly bar stool , I have the pleasure of claradges last year and so was utterly disappointed , they need to go to claradges and learn how to do afternoon tea properly
