This week we had afternoon tea at the Sanderson Hotel in London – looking for the best place to have afternoon tea in the capital? You should give this one a try. We braved the joys of public transport and Oxford Street on a weekday, and headed over for the Mad Hatter’s afternoon tea with an Alice in Wonderland theme at The Sanderson Hotel.
Afternoon tea at the Sanderson Hotel is afternoon tea, but with a twist. The whole thing is themed around Alice in Wonderland – the food, tea, and even the teapots. It is pretty special, as well as being absolutely delicious! Everything is really tasty and looks great. The theme adds an extra layer of fun to the traditional afternoon tea.
The menu for afternoon tea at the Sanderson Hotel is printed in an old copy of the book:
And the Alice-themed cakes were pretty amazing. Especially for someone with a pregnancy-induced sweet tooth.
Afternoon tea at The Sanderson is probably a grown-up equivalent of Eliza’s bus rides and babyccinos, isn’t it? I would say if you’re taking children then the older the better (my two-year-old enjoyed the cakes but got bored of sitting down within about five minutes and just wanted to run around as usual). Or better still, just go with friends and have champagne too.
And ah, The Sanderson. It made me really want to sit at the bar drinking one too many cocktails while trying not to fall over.
We settled for several laps of the foyer and a sit in all of the chairs instead.
