For an afternoon tea with a difference head to Sanderson hotel in Mayfair for their signature Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea which, you will not be surprised to learn, is a tribute to the the much loved and very surreal scene in Lewis Carol’s Alice in Wonderland. Sanderson Hotel is the perfect setting for this particularly zany tea, as the hotel itself is elegant and stylish with a modern and quirky edge. The outdoor courtyard is the perfect place to embark on your culinary adventure, it’s a relaxing space filled with flowering trees, fountains and mosaics with a full over-head cover and heaters provided during Winter. From the moment you are seated the fun begins as you are handed a menu concealed within a vintage book. The napkins are rolled in different riddles, the various teas displayed in miniature glass bottles and the sugar is served in a musical box complete with a spinning ballerina. With colourful sandwiches, delectable novelty cakes such as the tick tock victoria sponge clock, the colourful melting mango cheesecake and the Jelly Wonderland (a selection of delicately fragranced fruit jellies,) you certainly won’t leave feeling hungry. An original and eccentric alternative to the standard and rather predictable afternoon tea.
