The Mad Hatters afternoon tea was amazing. The food was great, and the detail to attention and decoration on them was gorgeous, and all so creative. The staff at the Sanderson were lovely and couldn't be more helpful. The location is good too.

The dining experience was fun & lovely I do think you should clarify payment Method when securing a reservation I entered credit card info assuming the charge would be applied after our dining experience To my surprise & embarrassment we walked out without paying the bill We were contacted later via email & given a link to pay but it was a bit disconcerting & it should be made clearer on the online booking site to alleviate such a problem

The tea itself was amazing, we tried each of the 5 varieties. The setting was wintry and cozy, the sweets were delicious, the scone was one of the fluffiest I’ve had. The savory bites, however were a bit dry and unimaginative. I was also surprised that we were not offered a second pass on any of the savory bites. In fact, after our food arrived, the server never returned until I asked for the bill.

The setting was just beautiful as was the presentation of the food and table setting. The savory sandwiches were not anything special and left a couple behind as the bread was too moist. The tea selection was OK, but the Earl Grey was anything but memorable. Too much effort on the presentation and too little on food quality.

Overall not the best experience. Food wise the toasted sandwiches were soggy and cold, brioche was dry, but the sweet cakes were great! Staff needed prompting when some tea was spilled for a new napkin and cup along with a top up of tea. Staff were hard to get hold of from the outset and the dining experience was reduced due to this - this was a birthday treat so was quite disappointed. Lovely cakes, scones were warm which was lovely. Ambiance of the restaurant was great Quite overpriced for service given

Food was good, staff was super friendly. music was too loud and didn’t fit with the Alice in wonderland theme which was a bummer

I do think the service has gone down. I come here a lot and haven’t been in years and it’s not what it used to be.
