Ann and Kerri opened Mad Hatters Tearoom Chester on the 23rd of April 2011 through a love of baking and good quality home cooking. We are passionate about our food, both sweet and savoury and believe in using great quality ingredients to produce tasty food, freshly made to order.
Despite the early mornings, we love nothing more than getting into our newly opened bakery and baking lots of fabulous cakes! We love to experiment and our Mad Hatters theme gives us huge scope to keep creating new and exciting flavours for you to try. We also take bespoke cake orders and cater for various diets, please just ask.
As our name suggests we love the fun and quirkier side of life and pride ourselves on creating a warm, welcoming and relaxed environment for you to escape the everyday hustle and bustle. Our team offer excellent customer service and we look forward to extending a warm welcome to you whether you join us for breakfast, a light lunch or for a wonderfully indulgent Afternoon Tea.
We take table reservations over the phone on 01244 323444 and can cater for all manner of larger events and private hire.
