Mad Hatter's Tea Party


"Eat me", "drink me".....so the labels read on the cake and drink when Alice fell down the rabbit hole.  When I was invited to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party at the Royal Horse Guards Hotel, like Alice I had a wonderful adventure. Unlike Alice however, the fun and exquisite tea and cakes I had were not a never to be repeated event.  You can have your very own tea party with the best tea in the world and the most divine cakes you can imagine.

Joanne Todd is the very talented pastry chef who created these tempting morsels. She also designed the beautiful china tea cups and saucers.  Joanne did her early training with Gordon Ramsay and has created her own unique and totally delicious style.


The "Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea" menu includes dainty sandwiches and savoury bites, and of course jam tarts, with hearts. The extra special items include coconut white rabbit cupcakes, "eat me" passion fizz cake and "drink me" layered bubble shots and pocket watch thyme torte. At £35 it is amazing value.  Forget the Ritz girls (and boys) this is the afternoon tea party that will tickle and sate all your senses.

The surroundings are beautiful, a step back in time, an historic English building as only the English know how to do, but I'll tell you more about that another day.

The Mad Hatter Tea Party runs from 25 March to 7 April at the Royal Horse Guards Hotel

We did the Ritz tea with my daughter a couple of years ago; very good. Found a place in New York also doing something similar; little quirky cafe, also v good. Looks like it's 'the thing to do' - good tip.

I had the Mad Hatters tea last year at the Sanderson Hotel and I just loved it. This one sounds equally interesting..

I love afternoon tea! A friend and I "did" most of those on offer in San Francisco before she moved from there. Since then they've been few and far between. Now that I'm in the Pacific Northwest (U.S.) I can ferry to Victoria B.C. and find good options there.

"Layered bubble shots"? Intriguing. The Shrewsbury style biscuits look divine also.

As well as the delish tasties Mo, the tea service is divine, I defy anyone not to enjoy a cup of tea in one of these pretty cups.
