So if you have never contemplated visiting Peckham, there is now the perfect excuse. Little Nan’s pop up will see you whisked to another world, tucked into the basement of The Golden Anchor Pub. Invited into the quirky den, it’s all quite funky and a bit kitsch. With teacups and teddies aplenty, and sparkly, multicoloured fairy lights bringing the party alive. The décor can only be described as unique- with clowns dotted around amongst Eastenders memorabilia.
There’s a buzz of excitement that fills the room. It becomes apparent fairly quickly that there is nothing ordinary about Little Nan’s, and the usually quintessentially British afternoon tea, has been given a little twist at this unexpected affair. Pick your own cup from the wall and instead of endless hot cups of tea in fine china, there are cutesy pots of cocktails, sprouting fresh mint.
The high tea has an assortment of sandwiches with simple fillings of ham and mustard, smoked salmon, egg mayo and jam. The almond and orange cake and the Victoria sponge are traditionally moist. The ever so sticky rocky road is finger-licking good. Despite pushing the boundaries of afternoon, tea Little Nan’s scones are served reassuringly with cream and jam.
Little Nan’s makes for a memorable afternoon. There’s some oldie classic tunes being played and a general cheer in the den. It’s ideal to celebrate a hen party or hire out the whole place for a unforgettable themed birthday. There are a few pop ups scattered around the city, and some new sites popping up soon. Be sure to take a peek for an unforgettable afternoon tea.
