Time Out says

This charming little Clapham tea room – one of two of the same name in London – takes its name from an American actress famous in the 1920s. She caused a bit of a stir by getting (most of) her kit off in a couple of her films. Sadly, the kitsch Clapham venue she inspired is much less risqué.

It does, though, pay homage to the Roaring Twenties in which she made her name. Expect, then, a venue that looks quite the dapper or flapper part, with fascinators, ostrich feathers and art deco bits and bobs throughout. There's a fair bit of chintz, too, for a touch of Victorian sensibility.

It's mostly about the afternoon tea here, with different menus on offer – think a 'Great Gatsby' option, or an 'elegant afternoon tea'. All feature finger sandwiches, a choice of tea and cakes, with some including scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. And if that's not enough? There are various themed workshops, including cocktail making and dance classes.
