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 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.

Alejandra Isabel Bedale & house band: 8.30pm

Isabel’s journey in music began at a young age singing with her sister as a child listening to radio. She was originally born in Quito Ecuador, South America and moved to London at a young age of 7. Although her studies have been varied and has extensive understanding studies in Life Sciences and Languages; she went on to learn Music Performance and Production more extensively at the LCCM, and graduated with Merit in 2010. Isabel has been influenced by a mix of Latin rhythms and urban sounds growing up, but learned that all the popular songs she loved emanated from Soul and Jazz artists and music she would dance to in South America. She strongly identifies with Music and co-writes songs in various projects in London. She is able to express her vocals in Spanish and Portuguese for Brazilian styles of music.
