Description: A pretty, quaint and quirky little tea shop, which can be found nestling in the very centre of the historic market town of Wymondham, Norfolk. Themed around Alice in Wonderland, the shop itself, has a vintage feel with pastel blue and pink walls, bedecked with bunting, vintage crockery and a range oddments. We pride ourselves on providing good, wholesome food, complemented by good old fashioned friendly service. We specialise in serving a wide range of home made cakes, scones, sausage rolls and much more. This is complemented with fresh bean-to-cup coffee, teas and a range of other hot and cold beverages. In short, Mad Hatters Tea Shop is "a slice of home made loveliness" !

“Amazing scones, good coffee, lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We arrived on spec today after a fairly patchy tea shop experience during our week in Norfolk. The lack of a loo sent 2 of our party elsewhere for 10 minutes (lovely loos in the library) but this is the only fault in a faultless tea shop. Often the coffee is poor (here it was very good). Sometimes the scones are old (these were fresh, crumbly on the outside, moist in the inside, and warm). Cakes are often a disappointment (the strawberry and vanilla looked wonderful and my daughter loved it, but wouldn't share). The tea was good, served in a quirky owl teapot. We could have stayed for hours and gone round the menu several times. We loved the fresh strawberries in the tiny jam pot, the clotted cream ( no cheap whipped or squirty cream here) and the staff - so friendly and helpful.

We only discovered this place on the last day of our holiday. Such a shame as we would have visited daily if we has found it earlier. A real credit to the county, and the lovely town. The rest of Norfolk could learn a lot in terms of service, ingredients, staff and quality from this place. Wonderful!

“Excellent Old English Tea Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Called in late afternoon for some refreshment and was so glad we chose this place. As the name suggests the interior is themed on Alice in Wonderland and has a definite charm to it. We ordered a pot of tea for two and friut scones with jam. Tea served in a large pot covered by themed cosy really was a blast from the past and for certain the scones were home made and delicious but I was convinced the strawberry jam too was home made and equally tasty.

“Quirky”

Very small but quaint, the owner and staff are so focussed on service it made my day. Great range of cakes and light lunches. Right in the middle of town.

“'To die for cakes'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Tea served in bone china cups and home made cakes just make this perfect.
The food is all made freshly on the premises and very reasonably priced.

“gluten free treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Gluten free cupcake made on the premises. Brilliant. Lovely coffee served in dainty mugs and saucers. Cherry presse intrigued me as I expected something like citron presse, still lemonade. However this was fizzy cherry served elegantly in a wine Glass! I shall return.
