If you are close to the river, the Museum of Garden History, in the Church next to Lambeth Palace
, by Lambeth Bridge
, does good simple lunches and has a fair amount of seating. Plus is a pretty church with plenty of history and a nice garden. (My kids love the gravestones!) There is a suggested entrance charge for the musuem, but it is not enforced. Teas are good too, with nice cake from the Fine Crown Bakery in Lambeth Rd. Generally a good destination for locals wanting to take a walk along the river. (If there are 60 it would be worth phoning in advance though there shuld be room.)
The gift shop is worth noting with lots of National Trust type things that make good Christmas presents for mother-in-laws.
Also good as a destination, though not for 60, is the cafe on Lambeth Pier. Which both has the best views and the best cappaccino (well it won an award) in London. Also does good Italian ice cream which though expenisive by normal standards is good value on the South Bank.
The Imperial War Musuem Cafe is also quite good.
