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.

Come to our next session on 14 May, featuring Lwazi Tshabalala Grinly! https://www.facebook.com/SE11Sessions/

A South African native, Lwazi started her music career in the late '90s as a solo soul vocalist before joining forces with jazzy 7 piece Ghetto Prophecy Movement (G.P.M).

Performing original material, Lwazi's experience with G.P.M included opening for top South African / international bands and headlining several festival stages (Splashy Fen, Awesome Africa, Flux Festival) around Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Since moving to the UK Lwazi has fronted a successful Cumbrian blues band (Bluestown) to rave reviews, and having recently relocated to London is playing jams in and around the capital / Greater London.

Despite having no professional training Lwazi is a naturally dynamic and soulful singer who connects with her audience. Don't miss her showcase set at SE11 Sessions; an uplifting selection of her motherland's Afro jazz tradition, including songs by Thandiswa Mazwai, Miriam Makeba & Freshlyground.
