Welcome to The Mad Hatter Tearooms. 

Fred, Mel & The Mad Hatter Team

We are a family run business right in the heart of Lyndhurst in The New Forest.

Mel, Fred, Isabelle & Sophie extend a very warm welcome to all that visit the Mad Hatter. 

We are a friendly & relaxed family run tea room in the heart of the New Forest that appreciates and celebrates our link to Alice in Wonderland, this link is exactly what gives us are individuality.  If you are looking for something a little bit different and a little bit fun give us a try.

Our menu is varied and has something for all tastes ranging from traditional cream teas & high teas, freshly cooked all day breakfasts, hot snacks, generous baguettes/paninis & homemade comfort foods.  We cater for all dietary requirements; we also offer take away options and we are dog friendly.  Our aim is to ensure that your visit is a pleasurable and memorable one by offering excellent service and delicious food, all with a smile.

We are situated at the top end of the bustling High Street in Lyndhurst, near the church where Alice Liddell’s grave is, and only a short walk in all directions from the forest trails, so whether you are just going for a walk or have just been, we are a perfect refreshment & rest stop.  Outside we have a pretty little roof terrace which is a real hidden gem, you barely even know you are in the High Street with the birds tweeting and the church bells chiming.  There’s no need to go anywhere else.

Inside we have created a quirky yet fun homage to Alice in Wonderland which allows you to engage as much or as little as you wish.  We have some people that like to dress up in character when visiting us and others that just like to take selfies with either the Mad Hatter or Alice on weekends – don’t forget to share your photos with us on Facebook & Twitter.  You may even just wish to purchase a souvenir from our range of gifts to remember your visit to Lyndhurst.

We don’t mind whatever the reason, we would just love to see you very soon.
