Customer reviews for Mad Hatter's Tea at Sanderson
((*** 1 March 2018 by Tracy from Hertfordshire
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 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
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.

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

Cute theme but food too sweet and service can be improved. Didn’t get our cocktails which are included in the package until requested for.
(**** 11 January 2018 by Susan from London
We were all really looking forward to the experience but sadly, having been fortunate to experience similar experiences in Thailand when we lived there, this fell a long way short. The service was poor, no one asked if we were OK or needed anything else throughout the whole afternoon. There was a door leading to the annexe which when opened created a really cold draft. The food was lovely to look at but was mainly quite sickly sweet - more savoury pieces would have been better. The tea options were good and we enjoyed them. The cocktail was possibly the worst I have ever had - we weren't given a choice and no idea what it was.

Totlly overpriced. Very a erage sandwiches, not refulled cakes and scones alright. Glass of laurent perrier was the best it gad goingbfir it. With a bill of over £500 for 5 persons and one bottle of Laurent perrier it was outrageous. Im recheking bill. Setting not as expected was very boring.
