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.

The Poetry School - Summer Launch

Come and launch The Poetry School’s new term with us!

The Poetry School's London classrooms are ten minutes down the road from us, and we’ve celebrated their last few term launches together with much merriment. The Tea House Theatre’s magic carpet stage and cabaret style chairs and sofas mix very nicely with a poetry reading or two!

There will be plenty of drinks, cakes and snacks, with doors open from 6.30pm and readings from 7.30pm. Poets include Tom Chivers and Liane Strauss, as well as readings from Poetry School Spring Term students.

There’ll be lots of time afterwards for drinking and chatting, as well as browsing the Poetry School’s Summer Programme of courses and workshops. Staff and tutors will be on-hand if you have any questions about whether a course is for you.


Later Event: April 23
