Step into Wonderland and join the Tea Party. Come and join us for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea in our quirky, friendly tea room. A favourite with visitors to Bath, we pride ourselves on a welcoming atmosphere; delightful homemade food and lovingly handcrafted cakes and scones. We cater for all types of Hatters and welcome everyone who has a love of good food and a bit of a quirky side. Located behind the Abbey, we are away from the bustle of the high street. So come and join the friendly staff for a truly Mad Hatter Tea Party.

If you're looking for great coffee, GREAT pastries and a great breakfast this is the place to go to. Small and intimate with seating area in a square outside the restaurant. Very popular restaurant judging from the queue that never stopped growing. Will definitely visit again especially for the chocolate and berry flapjacks.

This was the loveliest shop from the outside. But the lady inside was so unfriendly, I wondered what her deal was (does she hate tourists/ Foreigners? Did someone just die?). I needed to go to the toilet but bought something (though not hungry) 'beforehand' to make up for using her toilet. I still got an angry face for asking to... More

We stopped here for afternoon tea and cake after our boat trip. My daughter spotted the tea room as she is the biggest fan of Alice in Wonderland. We all had tea and cake it was a delight to finish our day out.

We randomly picked this little cafe to get takeaway lunch from to bring over to have a picnic by the canal and we were glad we did, the staff were very helpful in arranging it to be takeaway and bagging out items up, the panini and scones were very tasty and it's a great central location.

I stopped here for a tea in the afternoon and the server insisted I take a seat. I'm glad I did, because the food here was delicious! The restaurant is decorated with an 'Alice in Wonderland' theme, which was funky and original.
