The theme and decor was very good.
Very few savoury foods the least we’ve ever had for an afternoon tea anywhere.
3 of us were crammed round a table for two.
I had phone in advance and said one of us was a vegetarian and didn’t eat chocolate there was no note of this so they had less options for eating.
When I told the lady who seemed to be in charge all she said was sorry and did nothing more.
For the price I expect better. I would not eat here again there are far better afternoon teas in our area and they are cheaper.

This is our second afternoon tea at Mad Dog’s and Englishmen and it won’t be our last either. It is fantastic from the moment you enter to the moment you leave and the food is out of this world!!! We recommend this place to everyone we know, so much thought and effort goes into every event. Thank you for an amazing birthday!

What a wonderful experience we had, the whole occasion was amazing from the greeting, decor & the staff was outstanding. As I have a few allergies with some of the food that was on the menu, I was well catered for without it causing any problems & may I say it was delicious, will definitely be returning

This is the second ‘themed’ afternoon tea I have attended. The hosts never fail to impress. Going through the tiny door into an enchanted themed room was magical.
We had photos taken with a themed prop that had been set up as we entered the parlour.
The food was beautiful and plentiful.
Tiny potions with ‘drink me’ and the cheshire cats jam filled croissants served in a bowler hat made the ‘tea’ that little bit extra special.

We felt extremely proud to have booked The Alice in Wonderland afternoon Tea as a Christmas gift for all our family to join us. It hugely exceeded the expectations of us all (younger and older family members alike.) I was blown away by the thought and effort put in by everyone from Chefs to waitresses to create the overall "adventure" of our experience right down to the very clever menu. I could not recommend this more highly. It was spectacular!

A really special afternoon tea in a fantastic atmosphere (Alice in Wonderland). So much to look at! The food was the best I’ve had at an afternoon tea - much more interesting than a standard tea at other places with extra savoury items and stripey croissants as well as scones, everything was delicious! Service was wonderful, the girls there really take the time to show you attention and keep the atmosphere the best it can be. Will definitely be returning for the next theme! Thank you Mad Dogs and Englishmen for helping us to celebrate my mum’s 60th birthday in such style!

Absolutely amazing experience. The attention to detail was impeccable from the thoughtful room decorations to the the effort and detail put into the presentation of all the food. The cakes were truly amazing. Loved the croissants and scones served in a top hat and Alices legs sticking out the cake was such a great touch.
Will certainly highly recommend to everyone.

Stepped through the wardrobe to have the most magical Narnia afternoon tea. Couldn’t fault anything. A little pricier than would normally pay for afternoon tea but worth it for the amazing ambience and attention to detail. Highly recommend.

A truly magical experience!

We attended chronicles of Narnia afternoon tea. The atmosphere was fantastic. Very Christmassy feel. The attention to detail is magnificent! From walking through the wardrobe, entering wonderland and experiencing a bit of snow fall before you’re seated at your beautiful table.

The food was lovely, and cakes were beautiful. Loved all the little surprises like igloo and finding of the Turkish delight! We were very impressed. The venue beats most of the top themed teas in London.

Mad dogs & Englishmen you really are a Gem. We are lucky to have such a fascinating and beautiful venue. The themed teas just get better and better.

Your staff are so friendly and professional. And help make our experience fun.

Thank you, and well done To all !

Another beautiful tea with amazing attention to detail! The whole place is an Instagram dream! So pretty. We had a lovely, attentive waitress and loved the detail of the cakes served on the sleigh and the Turkish delight in the wardrobe. So creative and so beautiful.

Booked a table for the Narnia themed afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday with my twin sister and family following a friends recommendation, I have one word …. AMAZING... such a magical and pleasant experience everything was spot on, from the go get you walk through a wardrobe to get to the restaurant, the décor is truly inspiring and very magical, the service was excellent the food was delicious, i'm a vegetarian and was expecting the usual boring alternatives but no the food was lovely, all in keeping with the Narnia theme, even the scones where presented in igloos and the small fancy cakes cake out on a sledge, complete with mini wardrobe containing individual pieces of Turkish delight. would highly recommend and cant wait to go back to see what magical delights they have for their other themed events.
