Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014

We are based in an old Victorian public house that opened in 1886 on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens; immortalised as the ‘Vanity Fair’ in Thackeray’s eponymous novel.

We serve some of the best loose leaf teas available, proper sandwiches and homemade cakes; not to mention the best full English breakfast in London. Our teas have individual subtle flavours which would be overpowered by the instant, coarse, hit of coffee, so we do not sell it.

We make our own marmalade and jams, all for sale by the jar and all our teas can be bought by the ounce. Our meat comes from our local butcher and our fruit and vegetables from the local market gardens around us.

We are trying to be different. We will not hurry you. If you visit us on your lunch break, then have one, you will be more productive in the afternoon. If you want to have a meeting, we will not disturb you. If you are ‘working from home’, we have wifi. If you have children, we have highchairs, a chest of toys, and milkshakes. We always have the daily papers, so please, relax, and share in what we are trying to create, take a load off, and have a cuppa.

London Philosophy Club

"Is Philosophy Still the Study of Everything?"

Once upon a time, philosophy was the study of everything - from music to politics to the origins of the universe. Over the centuries, the various sciences have grown and specialised. Different academic disciplines have evolved to pursue the questions that were first posed by people known as philosophers.


Andy Day, a writer and philosopher, will be talking about the way he thinks that in response to this process, philosophers (particularly in the English speaking countries) have retracted the scope of philosophy. They have presented it as a subject that has its own exclusive fields of enquiry: epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind etc. Andy will lead a discussion on whether this is necessary or desirable. Is philosophy, at heart, the study of those purely philosophical topics or is it still the study of everything?

Doors open at 6pm

Bar open until late, drinks and snacks available
