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.

Fireside Reading of "An Iliad"

Tea House Theatre's fireside story-telling season returns for autumn 2016 with a reading of "An Iliad" by Allesandro Baricco. This volume tells a story of the Iliad from the points of view of various characters and especially written to be read aloud.

This reading is in conjunction with local artist Alphie Pritchard and his team who will be bringing a full scale production of "The Iliad" to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens in 2017.

Join us by the fireside in the unique atmosphere of the Tea House Theatre for an epic evening with heroes from the age of bronze.
