Sanderson Hotel afternoon tea is fit enough for a Mad Hatter

It is not often I am bowled over by an idea that actually delivers, BUT that happened when I experienced the Mad Hatters Tea Party at the Sanderson Hotel in London. The cheeky shop of quirky delights Luna and Curious have gotten into the act and supplied the hotel with wonderful tea service featuring zebra’s, birdcages and carousels.  Attention to detail was obvious with menus hidden inside vintage books, and napkins wrapped with riddles.

I started on the cute sandwiches on homemade bread including the smoked Cumbrian ham with wholegrain mustard on sun dried tomato bread; and cucumber and chive cream cheese on spinach bread. Then moving on to the home baked savoury and sweet scones with herb butter and fruit preserves.

The feast continued and moved on to my favorite part, the sweets!  These delights included ‘strawberries and cream’ homemade marshmallow mushrooms; a carrot meringue served on a bed of pea shoots; a ‘Tick Tock’ traditional Victoria sponge clock and a melting mango cheesecake coated in rainbow patterned white chocolate.

To finish off the experience guests are invited to ‘Jelly Wonderland’, where the most delicious fruit jellies made in Victorian jelly  moulds are presented on a lavish Phillipe Starck cake trolley.
