Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014, 2016 & 2018!

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.

Facilitated Debate 

Make Your Case is a facilitated debate that combines the audience participation of our public debates with the expert-led guidance of our training workshops. Our aim is to help our members forge workable solutions to complex problems by engaging in constructive debate.


The debate will start with a presentation from Colin Crooks, who will make his case for applying the principle of the Robin Hood Tax to create jobs for the unemployed. The audience will then be invited to question and critique Colin's plan and come up with amendments or alternatives, after which he will be invited to make a final pitch for the audience's support.
