I visited the Waterloo HouseTea Rooms with my teenage daughter...thinking we would just have a cup of tea. However, having discovered a change of ownership at the Tea Room and so much on offer on the menu, we stayed for just under two hours! The menu has something for everyone and the prices were very reasonable. The food was excellent... More

Had breakfast here and the food was to die for. Recommend the Eggs Benedict, it was simply marvellous, and the service was not half bad.

We have visited this tearooms over the past 5 years and have always been very happy with the choices and service. It has recently changed hands and whilst the food was very good the choices had been drastically reduced. We normally would have a jacket potato but there were none on the menu and whilst there was a quiche, soup... More

Had a lovely pot of Ceylon tea, best I've ever had. Scones were great too, freshly baked that day and were warm. Staff were lovely and very chatty. Keep an eye on this place.

This was my first visit to the tea rooms and I would thoroughly recommend it. Nice light interior and very friendly staff. I had the meat and cheese platter; it was delicious and too big for me to finish! Would definitely go back.

We have called into the Waterloo Tearoom twice in the last month and on both occasions received a very friendly welcome. All the staff were lovely, smiling and chatty. Food and drinks well priced and of good quality. Do call in if you are in Cranbrook, you wont be disappointed.

I popped into this lovely tea room whilst in Cranbrook, I parked in the free car park opposite and grabbed a quick lunch. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad and what a delight it was; succulent chicken, flavourful Caesar dressing, home made croutons, plenty of anchovies and Parmesan. The service was friendly, attentive yet not intrusive. I would highly recommend... More
