Drink tea at Regent Hall

The hustle and bustle of Oxford Street is perhaps the last place you'd expect to find a friendly and reasonably priced church cafe, but there is such a haven of tranquillity in the form of the Salvation Army's Regent Hall, at 275 Oxford Street. The Hall itself was once a skating rink, and when it became vacant in the early 1880s, Salvation Army Founder General William Booth bought the lease, opening the Regent Hall Corps on 18 March 1882.

The café might just be a fairly ordinary canteen with tea, cake and savoury snacks on offer, but it is certainly a bit of a haven if you've just spent half an hour being pushed off the pavement by the hordes of bag wielding shopaholics. The food and drinks are simple, as are the surroundings, but when your author dropped in last week it was very welcome.
