The service was great and very friendly; kids and adults enjoyed the tea a lot- we had booked a table just as well as it is tiny. If you get of the tour bus DONT use an app to find it- just turn round in opposite direction the tour bus is going at the side of the Abbey and you... More

Stopped by at the Mad Hatter's while on a bus tour to Stonehenge. Only had an hour and a half total in Bath, so instead of running around we opted for a relaxing visit to the Mad Hatter's to enjoy the beautiful weather and a great cup of tea with scones (made on premises and still hot when they were...

My husband order the Cream tea for all of use and it came in a generous portion ,... More

Small and quaint little tea room that is in a wonderful location. They offer a good selection of beverages and the service was more than adequate. We would certainly pop in here again, and recommend it to others.

Looked at all the big chain cafes & restaurants as I strolled through Barf! Then came across the Mad Hatters. Lovely smile on entering & a good selection of sandwiches n panini's on offer.. Would rather give my custom to the 'little independs ' who work so hard,than the bigger cafe. Great location too.. Give it a go!!!!!

This is a lovely Alice in Wonderland themed café in a central position in Bath, close to the abbey. We stopped to try some Marshfield ice creams, which were excellent. It's really nice that the centre of Bath hasn't been dominated by the big coffee chains.

Lovely to sit out on a sunny day and enjoy a pot tea for 2 at a fair cost in the centre. No problem at all if you don't want to order food which is a welcome change to some other places in Bath

Nicely located. But we had to sit inside as drizzly weather. Small. Quirkiness based on Alice In Wonderland. I thought the tea was very average; my wife thought it nice. Did not eat.

Visited the cafe in Bath. It's very small which is a shame they could have a lot more customers at once as it's such a great place. Full of memorabilia ans the pictures is exactly what it looks like. We stopped off for coffee and cake which was lovely. I noticed they had a good section of panini's/jacket potatoes etc... More

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.
