Bea's Crawfish Boil is back!

The Crawfish Boil is back! 

In the spirit of all things Americana, Beas of Bloomsbury will be bringing back the much loved Louisiana-style Crawfish Boil! Mountains of Spiced Crawfish, Potatoes, Sweetcorn, Sausage, and Garlic Bread along with cocktail sauce, comeback sauce and our special cajun butter sauce for dipping, this is a not a feast for the faint-hearted. This is a crawfish boil the way my family has it back in the states.

There will be no plates, no cutlery. Just lots of butcher paper, wedges of lemon, and learn the 'rustic' way of enjoying these critters, which would not be out of place in any horror B-movie. Don't come dressed fancy! Come in clothes that you may need to burn in shame afterwards.

Tickets are £32 per person for all you can eat Crawfish, sauces, butters, sides and dessert. Drinks are not included. For dessert we'll be passing out our ice lollies of different flavours or brownies, enjoy as many as you can consume! One seating only, so there's no rush--this will be a proper Southern party--no rush, a chance to enjoy the nice weather, and great company.  Better yet, the crawfish comes right here in the UK rivers, and by eating them, we're helping the UK white-clawed crayfish population by eating the American Crayfish invaders. Our crawfish come courtesy of Crayfish Bob. Please visit his site for more information on what you can do to help eradicate the Crawfish population.

There will be a drinks menu available serving frosty beers and our own Raspberry Lemonade as well as margaritas!

The Crawfish boil will be held at our Maltby Street arch--starts at 6:30 p.m. and will go onto into the night. If you have any song requests--send it along to us and we'll add it to the playlist!

If you are wishing to host a corporate event or celebratory Crawfish boil we can accommodate up to 50-130 people (more if the weather is cooperative) for private hire. Please email for more information.

High Tea at The Dennis Severs House



We are thrilled to be collaborating with The Dennis Severs house in putting on this very special event. The house is a Grade II listed building based in London's East End. It acts as a "still-life drama" created by the previous owner as an "historical imagination" of what life would have been like inside for a family of Huguenot silk weavers. The house topped The Telegraph's list of 100 things to do in London in 2012 and described it as 'A uniquely immersive way to engage with London’s past.'


To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen's Coronation we will be holding two days of high tea within the walls of this extraordinary house. Our afternoon teas are highly regarded by the likes of TimeOut London and The Financial Times amongst others! This unique event will see plethora of cakes, bunting and jaunty cake stands providing a high tea with a difference. Together Bea’s of Bloomsbury and The Dennis Severs House will be putting the fun and intrigue back into the British love affair with Afternoon Tea. The menu will include traditional teatime favourites and fancies, all with a unique twist. 


Tickets are available via our events page, grab them quick - this is set to be a sell out!
