Tudor House To Close In Santa Monica

Sad but true… Long-standing repository of all things Anglophile, The Tudor House market and tea room will be closing in about 4 weeks.  After receiving a tip from a reader about the imminent closure, I talked to an employee who confirmed the tragic news.  It seems that after 20 years in the same location at 1403 2nd Street in Santa Monica, and 50 years total, the purveyor of British food and condiments, as well as tea room will be letting their lease expire in about two months.  The owners tried valiantly to find a buyer to take over the establishment and preserve it, but none were forthcoming.  It looks like a new “Spanish” restaurant will eventually be taking over the space, and employees are fleeing to the new upcoming outpost of The King’s Head in the Valley, Studio City to be exact with a (fingers crossed) opening in June.  End of an era.  thetudorhouse.com.

  1. This is really so sad, the end of an era. We were there to celebrate a birthday last week and my favorite waitress for 20 years gave us the sad news…..there is no place like it and we will sorely miss it. It is my go to place for special occasions and nothing I know of will replace it.

  2. My family and I adore this tea house. What first brought us in were the goosberry tarts. Goosberry is a fruit that is prevalent in europe and I couldn’t believe that I had found it here in the states. I will miss the floral printed wall paper that added to the ambience of the shop. Good Luck and the best of health to the staff and Mr. and Mrs. Dulley. I’m so happy that I had a chance to purchase some very fine porcelain gifts at your store.
