Firstly the staff seemed friendly, however when it came to the mothers day tea they must have used the cheapest of ingredients for I would say 14 finger sandwiches, about 12 small cakes and 8 scones no bigger than an inch the smallest 2 dishes of cream and 2 of jam, Bearing in mind there were 5 adults and 1...

We had afternoon tea in the downstairs room for my mum's 50th birthday party and it was wonderful. The decor is perfect - lots of antique style bits for sale that really suit the theme of the place. The well downstairs in a good attraction in itself! Service was great, even though there were around 22 of us. Can't wait... More

Coffee shop serving a variety of small meals/sandwiches. Perfect for a brunch or lunch. My personal favourite is the chicken and bacon toasted sandwich made with freshly cut bread. They serve homemade soup and quiches and lots of tasty specials. It's a great little place, full of antiques that you can purchase. Downstairs there is a well and lots more... More

Lovely place for a good breakfast or a cuppa and slice of cake. Light lunches are also available. Downstairs are more tables and a selection of antiques and vintage items for sale in this slightly quirky but high quality café.

We have passed this corner cafe on many occasions and this time had a chance to pop in. The car park opposite is convenient. The service was efficient and friendly and the chocolate and coffee very good. The sandwiches were fine but the chilli sauce in one had a strange taste. The antiques on the lower floor were interesting too... More

We had a lovely afternoon downstairs with plenty of room. Sandwiches fresh and delicious, plenty of tea and cakes are always a treat as they tend to be different each visit.

We enjoyed a Festive Afternoon Tea in the downstairs function area which is quaint and very cosy without being cramped. The sandwiches were fresh and delicious as always. The cakes are often different from the time before so it's a nice surprise as to what you'll get! Loved the choc cake with orange topping.

No visit to Wateringbury is complete without a visit to this quaint little tea room. Me and my mum always take a trip to Where Memories Meet whenever we have the time as the ambience is wonderful, the staff are really polite and the food cannot be faulted. Perfect spot for watching the world go by.
