It really is kind of secret. Soho’s Secret Tea Room sits above the Coach & Horses pub, and is accessible only by a tiny winding staircase behind the bar. You have to ask to get access to the stairs that lead to a tea room with high ceilings, huge windows, wooden floors, a fireplace, and little tables covered with old fashioned tablecloths. The servers are kept busy delivering tea, scones, cakes, and sandwiches—and flipping vintage 78s that play a soundtrack of 1930s big band on a tiny red record player.

We choose this place based on a recommendation from our friend Natalie, who described it as feeling very similar to childhood afternoon teas at grandma’s house. Sold.

On this rainy Sunday we easily got a seat without reservations, but word is that the secret’s out and reservations are usually needed.
