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

We loved the wide choice of teas offered though our favourite (roobos) was temporarlily out of stock but had plenty of alternatives which were served in lovely very large and... More

Very nice little coffee shop right by the riverside. Coffee was great, so was the carrot cake and the chocolate milkshake we had. Well worth the money as the coffee was actually really nice which is rare for little shops like these as they normally skimp out on expensive coffee. The decor was very well done. Only downside was the... More

This beautifully presented tea shop is in a brilliant location and serves great tea and cake! We loved the Alice in Wonderland theme too - lovingly carried through to the design of the unique tables and chairs!

We booked the whole shop out for a Hen do afternoon tea. They were able to cater for various dietary needs and were not too expensive. The whole tea was lovely and there were a range of sandwiches and cakes with the biggest scones I have ever seen. No one went hungry and we would go back. The shop is... More

Was in Bath for some father/daughter time and was looking for somewhere to buy him lunch. Came across this place and loved the look of it. I'm a massive fan of anything Alice related! Great service, reasonable prices, great selection and all made fresh! Me and my dad are in agreement that it was - as the title says -... More
