The 1940s Tea Room: Hillman's

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.

Opening Times:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday: 10am – 6pm
Sunday: 10.30am – 5pm
Wednesday: CLOSED

    The afternoon tea is gorgeous. I often remember the taste of the beautifully seasoned cucumber sandwiches and the lovely raspberry tart. It’s a memorable, charming experience going to the Hillman’s Tearoom.
