Mum and I had a lovely afternoon, the Narnia afternoon tea was exceptional. I've been before to the Wizarding afternoon tea and that was also fantastic, a great little place and they run the themed afternoon teas so well, the staff were friendly, attentive and very welcoming.

Wow, it is an experience. Entering through a wardrobe into a winter wonderland, socially distanced and the atmosphere was great to catch up with family. Food was amazing far too much but you can take home. You can take your own alcohol which we don’t know as didn’t see this mentioned on website, but we will be back. Amazing!

A visit to Narnia.. Wow just wow! I was blown away by the experience, the decor and ambiance was incredible, the attention to detail was 10/10, service was fantastic and our nut allergy was taken seriously and was given a separate plate of gorgeous treats with alternatives. We cannot wait to go back!

The best afternoon tea I’ve ever had. Everything from the service to the food along with the different themes, simply stunning. My only feedback is the booking system if only they could make it more user friendly to see available slots rather than having to individually click on each day. If that could be changed be perfect

This was my first time at Mad Dogs & Englishmen and afte hearing amazing things I booked the Mary Poppins afternoon tea for my daughters 6th birthday.
It was one of the nicest afternoon teas I’ve had with regards to presentation and taste. The setting was stunning and the service was second to none. The waitress even asked if we were celebrating anything and brought out the sweets with a candle and extras.
I’m very excited to try the other themes. Worth the money as a lot of effort goes into it!

My GF is obsessed with Mary Poppins and this place pulled out all the stops to bring to life a beautifully decorated Mary theme with music playing and absolutely inspired, delicious food.
I will be booking again for another theme.
