The Top Ten Best Lunch Spots in Kennington – no. 9 – Tea House Theatre

Tea House Theatre -

Positives: They transformed a former pub into a tea house with a lot of personality. A convivial setting, on what is now called Vauxhall Walk Square, on the edge of Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. At lunch, they do a good Welsh rarebit, a kedgeree, and just about every type of tea you could think of. Sometimes there’s live music, and it’s an events space at night, for everything from poetry to ballroom dancing to, yes, theatre. It’s Kennington’s most baby-friendly venue – they will roll out the red changing mat for you and your little one.

Negatives: About those babies – if you don’t want to eat lunch surrounded by NCT groups, you’re in the wrong place. Being militant about tea, they don’t serve coffee. There’s a big choice of cakes but they are all intensely creamy and rich.

    It does smell a lot less doggy now, but there’s something about the saggy leather chairs, rugs, and cakes out throughout the room on individual stands that feels, well… a bit less than 4/5 hygiene rating. And £7 for a pot of tea is, arguably, pushing the limits!
