Sanderson invites you to tumble down the rabbit hole for the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland and enjoy all the splendor of our Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea. Discover menus hidden inside vintage books, teapots adorned with kings and queens, sandwich plates decorated with birdcages, carousels and ticking clocks upon which rest savoury, specialty sandwiches. Classic Cucumber, Goat Cheese Croque-Monsieur, White Crab Eclairs are all created for our guests with specially selected ingredients to delight the senses.
The ending is as divine as the start. Choice is unending, but a few hints follow forthwith… Scones are sinful, the red velvet Ladybird Cake inspires tears of culinary joy, and time stops when tasting our chocolate-coated, coffee-flavoured Pocket-Watch Macaroons. The star attraction, however, is our collection of Sanderson-Exclusive Teas. In celebration of the sesquicentennial anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic novel, Sanderson is simply giddy to introduce 5 new, tailor-made teas inspired by the characters of this beloved story. “Alice” has transformed into China Black Tea infused with hints of blackcurrant, vanilla, caramel, citrus, bergamot, blue cornflowers and blue mallow flowers. These are now available to purchase at £12-15 each.
The Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at Sanderson will continue to evolve, with elements and flavours changing seasonally. Tea is served daily and is priced between £48 and £65 per person excluding service, £35 per child for children 4-11 years old. On Valentine's weekend, Mother's Day weekend, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day, Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea is priced from £58 per person for special packages.
