The Waterberry Tea Garden is one of those restaurants and Tea Gardens where you will never leave disappointed. I can really recommend the service and food by one hundred percent. Either have your food in the beautiful airy setting inside or on a lovely summers day outside on the patio under the lovely Waterberry trees. Also kid friendly so take... More

Always good, but wish it would stay open. (recent kitchen fire) Great venue, superb food, service recently improved from previous visits, lovely walk in the forest and if lucky could see some buck. On the pricey side.

Looking for a nice place to have a quick bite and a cup of tea. Found this establishment which is very quant and set in a tranquil area of reclaimed swampland, complete with a beautiful pond which even has a very realistic looking croc floating in the middle. Service was superb and the lemon meringue pie was exceptional. Not for... More

This was our first visit to Waterberry since the old building was cutted by fire - and what a pleasant surprize it was. The new decor and furniture were tastefully chosen and it creates the impression of an upmarket restaurant. The service is still just as efficient as in the past. We rnjoyed breakfast here and it was delicious. We... More

and I wanted to go out for breakfast, waking up a bit late-ish its more brunch than anything else. One thing I like about the zomato app is that it's a convenient to find out hidden treasures and The Watterberry Coffee Shop definately is a treasure. Take away the negative reviews, when you can see some reviewers who had hissy... More

On my first visit when the Waterberry was first renovated/ rebuilt I was disappointed in general. But we decided to give it another bash this weekend and came home completely satisfied. There is a wait for meals but I believe that is only because everything was cooked
