LIFESTYLE: Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at Mad Dogs & Englishmen

I was absolutely delighted to be asked to Mad Dogs & Enlglishmen to sample their Limited Edition Alice in Wonderland themed Afternoon Tea.

Before I talk about the afternoon tea, I just wanted to tell you a little about Mad Dogs & Englishmen. A family run  independent shop that specialise in beautiful furniture and home accessories but also bespoke carpentry. (I also happen to own one of their bespoke wooden tables). The shop alone is a haven of beautiful interior design and staged living spaces and well worth a visit to find the ultimate inspiration and lovely items to furnish your home.

Their tea parlour is perhaps one of the most unique places I’ve ever been and you would be forgiven for thinking you had walked in to a Parisian boudoir. I applaud them for the effort, design and detail that has gone into creating this space. There is also a private room for hosting events such as baby showers. Thier afternoon teas have always been my favourites but they have started doing limited edition themes. Previous ones include Beauty & The Beast and Narnia.

Alice in Wonderland is the latest edition and it did not dispappoint. From the menu, to the napkins and crockery. The attention to detail is out of this world and their very own ‘food artist’ Lottie Fox Edible Art works in house to create the sweet treats especially.  Their sandwiches remain the freshest and tastiest of all the places I’ve ever had afternoon tea and for me they pip even the most sought after London afternoon teas to the post! Never will you taste fresher – that is a fact I am willing to stake!

I can’t recommend for you to go here highly enough! Make it your reason to visit Leigh on Sea and then take in the rest of this lovely seaside town.

This themed tea is only available until 29th April with all the Saturday dates now fully booked there are a few week days still free but if you don’t make this one, book and go for tea anyway as you will not be disappointed!
