If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you."
William Ewart Gladstone
Former British Prime Minister
"Tea, tea, tea. Where would I be without tea? Wherever you may be, always enjoy a nice pot of tea...or two..!"

Mad Hatter Tea Room, Margate
I am sad learn that Peter (pictured below) has decided to close the Mad Hatter Tea Room in Margate, after many years. Peter has a new partner, and wishes spend more time enjoying life. I wish him well, although England will lose a great tea room, and a great tea room character. He will be sadly and deeply missed by all.
Summer English tea room tour
Although the English summer is a few months away, I am now planning the Joe Ellis' English Tea Room Tour, visiting and reporting on English Tea Rooms that I will visit on the tour.
Tea rooms closing down
It is sad to see so many great English Tea Rooms closing down. Since redesigning this website, I have been saddened to see the very best tea rooms either closed, or on the market for sale. Let's support this English tradition
A sad loss to the English Tea Room industry. "The Mad Hatter".
