I am a student studying in University of Bath and when I decide to treat myself, I always come here for an afternoon tea. 8 out of 10 times the scones are so fresh that they are almost too hot to touch! The decor is inspired by Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter. None of the teapots, teacups or saucers match which... More

Thank you so much for your sincere hospitality and for the authentic scone experience. Our visit here was certainly a highlight of our week holiday in the UK.

Planned to come here before our trip to Bath because I love Alice in Wonderland! It is so cute and the scones are delicious, definitely worth a visit.

We stopped in here for a drink while on holiday in Bath. It looked very quaint and the lady who served us was friendly. The drink and cake we had were both very nice and we really enjoyed our visit.

Visited on cold December day, door wedged fully open, on closing the door I was told it had to be left open so the windows didn't steam up - doesn't matter if the customers freeze - especially as all 4 tables are either by the door or just a few feet away! I have never before come out of a... More

Jake W, Owner at The Mad Hatter's Tea Party, responded to this review

Hi & thanks for your nice comments, I did suspect it a bit when you walked through the door, especially when you got embarrassed in front of your group asking for the door to be closed in a small/busy jam packed, predominantly takeaway sandwich/coffee shop. Anyway there's not a lot of point replying to ludicrous comments made by someone who... More

We have called in this perfect little café on our trip to Bath for the last 3 years and just when I thought it could not get any better, it did!! The best cream tea we have ever had, with luscious homemade scones, lashings of clotted cream and high quality strawberry jam, you even get an accompanying fresh strawberry and... More

We were excited to visit after the reviews on here, however it was freezing cold and the decor was looking a little tired. A good idea for a theme, but the cafe decor and staff themselves are dated. Drinks were nice but nothing special. The couple wouldn't let us close the door and wouldn't allow a buggy inside(!). It was... More
