AboutFrom Monday, 5 August, The Ivy Montpellier Brasserie will be serving up a special Alice in Wonderland-themed Afternoon Tea in celebration of Cheltenham being the location in which Lewis Carroll was believed to have met the original Alice. The limited-edition tea will be available throughout the month of August, including Afternoon Tea Week, taking place from Monday, 12 to Sunday, 18 August.
