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.

Made by Thomas Hamilton, a previous visitor to the NSC Club Night, this documentary profiles Leslie Howard, the in-demand matinée idol of the 1930s seen as a perfect English gent and one of the stars of Gone With the Wind and The Scarlet Pimpernel. Despite his success in Hollywood, when WW2 came along he felt the need to be back in England, where he helped the war effort through making films with strong political subtexts. So strong, in fact, that there are still speculations about the shooting down of his civilian plane by the Luftwaffe in 1943…
