Ah, there really is nothing more wonderfully British than a nice cup of tea and an opportunity to put your feet up, something the folk at London’s Tea and Tattle know only too well. Situated under the atmospherically delightful Arthur Probsthain Oriental and African Bookseller (est. 1903 no less), Tea and Tattle is a very English escape from the stiff upper lips of the busy streets above. Painted in a bright white, the room is light and airy despite its subterranean location, one wall featuring hand-painted Chinese wallpaper, others eclectic art works, some of course related to the business of bookselling. Calling itself a ‘traditional tea room with a modern cultural twist’, Tea and Tattle specialises in that indulgent favourite, the afternoon tea. It’s a must for tourists and locals in need of a relaxing hour away from the office alike but for those needing something more practical to eat, there’s also a good range of high quality sandwiches, cakes and scones.

As I heard, it was true, staff was really nice and cream with scone was especially good. Some people said english breakfast tea isn’t that good but to me it was lovely with a little bit of milk. I definitely recommend this place to my friend who visit london.

Especially the cream cheese sandwich and scone are delicious! It is not as sophisticated as the luxury hotel afternoon tea, but it is very warm and cozy. The interior was unique and interesting. There are few seats and the atmosphere is calm like a hideaway. We had a nice afternoon. Thank you!

Service was quick and polite. I had the tea for one. Lots of teas to choose from but I recommend a more savory tea as my chamomile tea was too sweet along with the sweet scones (super delicious, my favorite item on the platter), sweet cakes, and sweet lemonade. Sandwiches were an afterthought, but also an afterthought for me so not too serious. My seat was facing an entryway halfway blocked by a wall, and my chair was wobbly, so not the best seat. Make your reservation for a table not facing a wall, you'll thank me. Overall, I think you could have a better tea at home but if you don't have to time and are looking for a reasonably priced place, this spot is great.

Because am I Asian? They didn't even smile and say Thank you. And the tap water is very dirty. There was a foreign object in the water. Please check before drinking water. I will not recommend this store to my friend.

Was a little disappointed that I had to wait a week for booking as all the times suggested last week were unavailable. When I got there, there were no other customers, so was able to talk to my family in Australia on FaceTime without disturbing anyone.

Si necesitais reponer fuerzas después de visitar el museo aquí encontrareis una cafetería que además de café y té sirven unos sandwiches y tartas sobresalientes.

Went from British Museum across the street to have some wonderfully relaxing tea, sandwiches, scones, fresh squeezed lemonade and cakes. You select your items from a selection and they served them very nicely. Could have conversations without straining to talk/hear and the downstairs room was very cozy.

But the restaurant is in the basement of what appears to be a bookstore and has a smell of incense. Kind of quirky.

When we arrived the place was almost empty so we had a choice between two equally non ideal small tables - one by the door to the toilets and one by the door to the back serving room. We picked one in the back by the serving room door and I think that was a mistake (stone tile and horrible lighting made this particular area extra loud and non cozy). Entire tea room is really tiny with dingy walls, nearly no natural light, and bad artificial lighting. It is also amazingly loud - there was only one more couple talking at normal volume but it was very distracting, and our server rushing with trays of tea plates back and forth to the back room, filling room with sounds of clunking plates, running dishwasher, etc. etc. It felt more like seating in a kitchen hallway than in a tea room. Food was OK, scones and sandwiches where quite tasty but cakes seemed a bit stale (sponge cake was way too sweet). Also it didn't help that our server made no attempts to make experience special - she coldly took our orders, brought our tea and sandwiches, later brought scones and cakes after quite a bit of a delay during which my tea got colder, never asked if we would like more tea. Needless to say we didn't have any desire to linger and left as soon as we could finish our food. It was definitely not a high tea experience we have been hoping for.

Read about this place in British Heritage magazine and it lived up to the description. Tea and cakes were wonderful. The sandwiches and scones were on the smallish side, but tasty. A great place to regroup and refresh after a day in the museum.

Upon arrival we were greeted and immediately sat our table, which had a reserve sign on it, which indicated they were ready for us, excellent! We opted for the afternoon tea service, which include a traditional tea sandwhich (wide variety of choices), a scone, dessert, and choice of tea or other beverage. Everything was very good and service was prompted. Keep in mind this is a local tea room, so was a less formal tea service. Tea and Tattle is a wonderful place to stop for nice casual tea and light food, and a great location by the British Museum. We would indeed return for another visit.

Able to try two different sandwiches, 2 scones and 2 cakes. Of course the Tea as well. Chicken /cucumber/lemon mayo was by far the best. The hummus and red pepper sandwich was also very tasty. We tried the plum jam and the raspberry jam which were both great. And for the cakes, a lemon drizzle cake and a coffee walnut cake which were both fantastic. The whole experience of walking into a bookstore on a street, and having to go downstairs and it being this quaint little cafe for tea and sandwiches. Too adorable to sat the least. Great food, great service and the ambience helped the whole English tea feeling. Completely recommend this place for it is a hidden treasure in my opinion.
