"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.  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.

You're invited ...

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!  Be sure to email us at  info@aliceandthehatter.co.uk for parties. Our 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.

 Birthdays and special occasions

Why not join us for your special occasion be it a birthday, baby shower, anniversary or just a good excuse for a tea party with a difference? Alice or The Hatter is sure to make an appearance if you ask. Whether booking for two or twenty guests, so please email us to discuss your particular requirements and we'll always do our very best to offer inspiration and make it an occasion to remember.

Not just for the children ...

At Alice and the Hatter our aim is simply to be the best afternoon tea venue in Kent - a tea room for all ages.  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 a gluten-free selection is available.

Handmade & Licensed

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.

As “It's no use going back to yesterday” it may be worth a visit to Alice and the Hatter tomorrow.
