We intended to check this place out while spending a couple of nights on Hayling Island. When we arrived we were shown to a table by a friendly waitress. The place felt cosy and warm. The coffee was really nice and I can honestly say...my smashed avocado and poached eggs was simply amazing!! I would definitely visit this place again. Many Thanks Simon and DawnMore

It’s a small tea room. There were 5 of us ranging in ages up to 90 and a dog. Friendly staff, clean and efficient. Between us, we ordered a variety of meals. They all arrived at the same time with the bits that should be...hot were hot. I really should have asked how they prepare their chips. All of the food was of excellent quality and, those chips, they were truly excellent. We will return.More

My mother, sister and I visited Madhatters Tea Room and Gift Shop after taking a train ride along Hayling Island beach, from Eastoke to Beachlands, and attending the car boot. As we walked into the front forecourt area of the eating establishment, we were immediately...welcomed and we decided to take our seats at a table outside, as it was a glorious day. We were so pleased that we chose this tea room to take lunch. The "Specials" were delicious (spinach & feta cheese quiche and bacon & brie quiche) - absolutely enormous slices of quiche on our plates, along with a salad and a very tasty beetroot slaw. We also had a latte, lovely strawberry milkshake and a huge millioniare's latte which was a meal in itself! We are so delighted that we chose to eat here, the food and service was first class and we will certainly be visiting again, when next in the area, and will be ready to try another "Special". Thank you so much for a very tasty lunch.More
