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.

The Words of Anna Kavan


On Thursday 7th Feb at 7pm there will be a truly unique opportunity to discover the writing of Anna Kavan. An extraordinary writer whose works explored the poetry, creativity, and the terror of madness.

Anna Kavan is one of the great enigmatic figures of English literature, and she takes us into the frightening world of the dark side of life.

Her work has been compared with Doris Lessing, Brian Aldiss and Christopher Priest. Lawrence Durrell compared Anna Kavan to Virginia Wolf, and Anais Nin.

Readings will be from her book ASYLUM PIECE, of which Joyce Carol Oates wrote 'There are gems here, passages of startling poignancy and radiance...'

Join us the TEA HOUSE THEATRE in this unique exploration of a dangerous and exhilarating artist...
