“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.” Alice in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

Our hearts are firmly planted in the midst of the colour and craziness that is the Alice in Wonderland High Tea! This crazy-beautiful tea is the perfect excuse to don your favourite mad hat, in honour of the brilliant Mad Hatter, gather your fearless friends (as brave as the Doormouse), and insist on the presence of your favourite people as you sit down to a decadent, gorgeous table laden with all the favourite shmeckles of yum that you just can’t do without. 

A gentle mix of sweet and savoury this Alice-in-Wonderland tea, truly is an adventure. Every single item on the menu is hand-made for each guest, ensuring unprecedented delight. Chocolate mousse profiteroles combine effortlessly with mini pancakes, scones, quiches and even smoked duck pancakes. 

Take the leap down the rabbit hole and disappear into an elegant, decadent and truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

*Menu’s may vary from the images displayed. Please ensure you read the menu for this particular tea before you book! 

*All high teas are subject to terms and conditions & need to be booked in advance.
