World's First Underground Tearoom?


I have been on Twitter now for about a week and have been amazed at the things I have learned and the people I have "met" !

Are you aware of the underground restaurant thing going on around the world? I wasn't ... until "Lady Gray", an American living in London, found me on Twitter.

Lady Gray operates the Hidden Tea Room ~ a private underground restaurant in her home in London ~ where she hosts private Traditional and Champagne Afternoon Teas. Be sure to visit their cracking website.

The legalities of such a business aside, I think it's an amazing concept!

Hello :) Thank you for the lovely mention on your blog. :)

Cant wait to hopefully work with you for your next tea tour in London. I think your tours are a fantastic idea.

We obviously rate afternoon tea too, and thought an underground resto which offers Londoners and visitors alike an opportunity to experience a mroe personal tea would be fab. :)
Have checked out your website and your tour sounds amazing! :)


very best wishes,
~Lady Gray

Isn't Twitter an awesome tool for the blogger? Opens up a whole new world doesn't it?

As a fan of web design, I love the header on this site. Did you notice the water running out of the tap? Ha,ha! Adorable.

This is a very cool idea for a tea room by the way. The more tea rooms we have the better, eh?

How fascinating! The rules are so strict for commercial kitchens in the US - I would be afraid if I was them - but what do I know about the|UK!

I would love to visit an underground restaurant or tea room!

Lady Gray ~ I will be in touch soon. Would love to add a stop to your flat on next year's Tea in London tour!


Melissa, yes I noticed that - and all the little twinkling stars on some of the appliances ... and the steam rising out of the pan on the range. Love it!


Bernideen, I suppose there is an element of risk involved but there are thousands of underground restaurants in the world!


Rebecca, welcome to Uniquely Tea. I love your blog! It looks like you are a fan of the Pre-Raphaelites. So am I. Could so easily become obsessed with it, actually.


Steph, you never know, you might find some if you do a Google search of your area there in Bloomington.

I know there are some underground restaurants in the Portland area, I just haven't explored them. Interesting concept. I had actually thought about doing something like that for tea in the greenhouse we are building. And my husband thinks it will just be a greenhouse, ha!

Marilyn, ha ha! Go for it!

Fascinating! I'll be checking into this underground restaurant trend and checking with some of my foodie friends. Please post more about your Tweeting when you can. I signed up for a Twitter account but didn't really know what I was doing and quickly bailed out!

Very interesting. I had never heard of underground restaurants. I'd love to visit an underground tea room of the calibre of Lady Gray's. Her menu sounds wonderful.

I soooo want to go! :)
