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.

Nostalgia - Russian Classics Theatre

Russian Classics Theatre warmly invites you to enjoy the collection of her theatrical miniatures under the title of "Nostalgia", which we believe portrays well the main emotion that underpinned whole life of Nadeszda Teffi.

In Russian with English subtitles.

Nadeszda Teffi was a much loved Russian satirical writer. She was known as a Queen of Laughter in her native country and her sense of humor was often compared to that of Chekov.

She was also a poet, translator and a very original playwright. She had to spend most of her life abroad, far away from the country she adored, as she was never able to come to terms with the Revolution and its imprint on the society. Perhaps that's why her brilliant satirical stories are often tinted with gentle sadness.
