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.

l Food was nice but very small portions. Was told there was a lot of food but felt we could have had more for the price we paid. Definitely had to go someone else to eat after traveling all morning
