"Take some more tea" the March Hare said to Alice.
Lewis Carol wrote “begin at the beginning” and so Alice and the Hatter comes to town in the form of a new themed tearoom in Herne Bay and now also in Canterbury. Offering a family atmosphere and ambience best described as curious, the décor of themed wall art, chequered floor, throne chairs, tea cup stools, grassy nooks and love seats is a unique experience which is waiting for you to discover.

A warm welcome is assured for all customers while at centre stage a communal space using our 'Queen of Hearts' table, available to those celebrating special occasions, is adorned with tea cup stools, a large throne for the 'special guest' and, of course, a large teapot!

We cater for and appeal to anyone who likes a touch of the unusual and afternoon tea with a twist. The Hatter brings a food focus to “open book sandwiches”, for those who want a healthy choice with accompanying offerings of both specialist tea’s and coffee’s which has not been seen before locally. In a world of intolerance's and choices a gluten-free and vegetarian selection is available.

There are also delightful handmade artisan patisseries and bread, for those with that sweet tooth. We are a licensed tearoom and offer a small, but perfectly formed, selection of alcoholic drinks including our house red, white or rose wines specially selected Prosseco for those that like a little fizz and a range of Kentish ciders and beers.
