The 1940s Tea Room: Hillman's
Tucked away in Walthamstow’s Georgian Village is one of London’s best vintage tea rooms: Hillman’s.
Decked out in lovingly put together Forties decor, with a Sixties TV showing old series thrown in for good measure, Hillman’s feels charming and relaxed, from the mis-matched tea cups to the chintzy table cloths.
But Hillman’s isn’t style over substance, no, the food here is utterly delicious too. Think home made sandwiches and toasties, crumpets and a selection of truly tasty cakes (the home made Battenberg comes highly recommended). There’s also a wide variety of looseleave teas available, perfect for an indulgent afternoon tea break.
Owner Jason delivers such a friendly and personal service it’s no surprise his little Tea Room is permanently packed. With only a few tables and high demand, booking is highly recommended.
