I went tooling around some of my old London haunts the other day and came across the tea rooms I used to drink in many years ago. Sweet baby Buddha and all his little earthlings! What caught my eye was a sad sight indeed...... Its gone.
It was fantastic inside, still looking the same as it did in the 1960's, Formica tops and anaglypta wallpaper, a great big steamy hissy water thing and lashings of tea so strong you could re-sole your shoes with it....Nice. It was run by Renie and Geno, who settled over here in the early 60's from Italy. It was truly an oasis amidst a concrete hell. It made me feel very nostalgic and sad. R.I.P the 'Tea Rooms' may you brew on forever.
