The Brew House CafeKenwood House, Hampstead House, London, NW3 7JR

Nestled on the edge of Hampstead Heath and surrounded by landscaped gardens, Kenwood House is an oasis of calm just outside of central London. Why not indulge in an Afternoon Tea at The Brew House Cafe before a stroll on the Heath?

The Brew House Cafe is a rustic and spacious dining area located in the service wing of the historical Kenwood House. Afternoon Tea will be served in the 'Old Kitchen' , it is with regret that we cannot reserve any external tables.
