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.

SE11 Sessions

SE11 Sessions is Tea House Theatre's monthly night of jazz, soul & funk! Each month a guest vocalist fronts the house band, before musicians of all influences and ages link up for a scintillating jam.

'Motown & Soul'

Featuring the soulful vocals of Jana Vargová, December's opening set is dedicated to some classic Motown hits by the likes of Mary Wells, The Supremes & Marvin Gaye.

Jana grew up in a musical family in her hometown of Bratislava (Slovakia). Surrounded by classical music, jazz, fusion, folk rock and pop, she started singing at a very young age and later took up piano and flute. She continued her studies in Slovakia, Austria and France and started writing her own music. After moving to London in 2014 she formed a folk/pop/rock band under the stage name ‘’Lanterns’’. Her melodic rock influenced songs draw you into a world of self-reflection, contemplating loss and gain, roaming and searching for home and fascination with the unknown.
