Stopped here for lunch; great little place with delicious, fresh, sandwiches (the turkey, cranberry and stuffing sandwich was fabulous!). The shop is small with only a few tables inside, and a couple outside; all the tables and chairs are painted with bright colors reminiscent of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland, and the walls are decorated with...

I visited the Mad Hatter's Tea Party after visiting the Roman Baths and Bath Abbey and I loved the quirky decorations. I ordered tea and a cupcake and while the cupcake was yummy, the tea was not so great.

In spite of it's Trip Advisor sign, this was a disappointing place for lunch. We tried it two days and they were out of vegetables both days! (we requested their roasted veggie sandwich), and we ended up with a dry cheese on bread sandwich. Yuck. They need to get their act together. On top of this, the service is slow.... More

Had tea here yesterday - a sunny Saturday afternoon and we managed to get a table outside. Staff were very pleasant, the choice of tea and cakes was good and it was a great place to people watch! Loved the quirkiness of the design of the tables and chairs!!

What a quaint, quirky tea cafe. Sit in the King and Queens chair and watch the world go by. A busy place with excellent hosts and superb food and drinks.

Very poor selection of soft drinks and the coffee was a grey colour and tasted odd. Also the teacakes we ordered came out of the freezer and tasted stale. Overpriced even for Bath. Eat somewhere else.

We called in for a cup of tea to be greeted by a surly "what do you want then". The table was cramped and the drinks bog standard.

Imagine my delight when I found this café in Bath. I HAD to go inside and explore. It's terribly quaint , with beautiful paraphernalia to remind you of Lewis Carroll's book. I had tea and sandwiches here and both were presented in a delightful manner on mismatched crockery, which simply added to the experience.

Stopped here for a very late lunch on our first day in Bath. There wasn't much choice for a sandwich with it being so late but what we did have was very nice...as was the cake afterwards! They have a good choice of teas and coffee and the waitress was very down to earth with us. Only a small place... More
