Absolutely awful. Do not ever go here. Booking at table for 5, we arrived to 3 chairs at the table and had to go and get our own menus. Once we decided what we wanted we had to ask someone to take our order. We ordered lemonades, tea, the Sunday roasts and some breakfasts. There was no lemonade so we ordered pineapple juice instead. Our waitress came back 20 minutes later to tell us there was no roast dinners left and we had to pick something off the breakfast menu which we then had to ask to actually see... Our drinks eventually arrived but the tea had no milk. We waited and waited for milk for our tea and finally went to ask for some and the reply from the waitress was "I'll do it as soon as I have time". Not good enough. The tea was already cold. The breakfasts came with no black pudding as was on the menu, when my friend asked about it they said "oh we don't have any left" without offering a replacement. My friend also asked where the 3 racks off toast were that were supposed to come with the breakfast and was told "the toast always comes later" she then bought out 1 rack of cold toast that we all had to share. We had no cutlery and no butter for the toast. The poached eggs were hard boiled! When I went to ask for the bill (because yet again we had been ignored) I spoke to the owner who only had to say "oh we're very busy today" and the waitress said "FOR FUCKS SAKE" as I walked away. We paid our bill (all of it may I add ad there was no discount offered) and left to the smug sarcastic remarks of the owner saying "oh byeeee" "see you again! Take care!!!". Do not waste your money eating here.

I had the loveliest time at the Tea house with my family. My son is 3 and there was a box of interesting toys and games to play with and he loved the Welsh rarebit and delicious cakes. We'd been outside at Vauxhall City Farm and so we warmed up over a cuppa and relaxed together in the friendly atmosphere. We liked it so much we ordered dinner. Shepherds Pie and Steak. We couldn't decide which was nicer. Our son asked the waitress if he could have a sleep over..... which says it all! Thank you for having us and making us feel so welcome and looked after.
I have visited the Tea House Theatre on a number of occasions and I thought it was about time I wrote a review. The atmosphere is wonderfully relaxing and the decor eclectically artistic, chess boards, art on the walls, bookcase and fresh flowers. There is a wide range of teas, I particularly like their Assam. The sandwiches are nice and big and full of fresh meat, cheese and salad. It is hard not to have a cake every time, they are delicious. They have a lot of evening events and when I went to SE11 Sessions I had a great evening. The band were fantastic, saxophone, guitar, bass and some sort of really big xylophone. If you want a nice place to enjoy good food and a relaxing atmosphere I would really recommend this place.
I joined my friends at this tea house yesterday afternoon for a birthday celebration. We ate lots of food - breakfasts, cakes and other dishes (which was basic but ok), but then around 3pm a waiter told us that if we wanted to stay longer we MUST order a Sunday roast. We were full but didn't want to leave so annoyingly had to order a roast beef meal that went uneaten. We were also charged a corkage fee to drink our own wine (the place does not serve alcohol). Very annoying as we had to go an incredibly long way to find somewhere to buy it. When I tried discuss these issues with the owner he became aggressive and said: 'We're loaded, so we don't care'. His rude behaviour soured my friend's birthday. I wouldn't recommend this place.
During the day Tea House is toddler-friendly and comfortable! A great place to have meetings or relax with your little one. At night, an even better place to have a glass of wine and enjoy a show. I love it!
This is a great place to spend an evening enjoying a cup of tea and a piece of cake or a glass of wine. It's also a terrific venue for live performances. A few weeks ago I attended a well-done reading of Beowulf and am looking forward to the upcoming Tennessee Williams drama.
The service is incredible. The venue is unique and sits on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. Highly recommend sitting here for tea or a performance or both!
Tea House Theatre is a unique venue in London, located on the Vahxhall Pleasure Gardens, a two minute walk from Vauxhll station. The service is incredible and accomodating and the venue itself is comfortable and quaint with big chairs, large old tables, and tea pots everywhere. After visiting London for a few months, this is one of the places I enjoy coming to at least once a week, whether for fresh tea or an event. I personally chose this venue to produce a theatrical performance, coming up November 29th and I know the audience will enjoy the surroundings as much as the performance.
I love this place, good food and well priced. Pot of tea and cake for £6!! In the heart of London, you can here Big Ben!!! Best full English in London.
We went to see the free silent movie, Seduction, which was the best serious silent movie I have seen, and far more interesting then The Artist. The owner was friendly and helpful , as we got there a bit too early.We got a home made tomato soup (although the kitchen was oficially closed) and a Pimms while we waited, and a not bad at all home made creme caramel, and the bill was reasonable.
So weird, same experience, lovely tea but my cake was totally gone off, even the icing tasted sour and my friends scones were so stale they were like a rock. How does this place not realise their food is stale? Shame because the concept is really lovely.
I love this place. The teas are amazing and the cakes are to die for. Best thing to happen in Vauxhall since the marmite factory. When they're busy its hard to get a table, when they're not its like an oasis away from the din of the city. Catch them when they're quiet and you'll get the best service in London. Well worth a try.
