The Waiting Room is an award-winning vegetarian restaurant in Eaglescliffe, Stockton on Tees. We’re busy, but relaxed and friendly, with a wonderful warm, bohemian atmosphere throughout two dining spaces. Our light, airy front room has a comfortable faded elegance, with high ceilings and generous tables. Our livelier conservatory back room has a darker, punk-cabaret vibe and makes a good party room.
The restaurant’s atmosphere and delicious homely food have attracted regular awards and commendations, including runner-up in The Observer’s Best UK Restaurant category in at least five of the last ten years, and the “Best Restaurant in The UK” award from the Vegetarian Society.
We create and serve generous, satisfying dishes using beautiful slow cooked vegetables, whole foods and organic dairy. Our food is carefully complimented with a great drinks list, comprising all organic wines and beers, locally produced fruit wines, really good juices and our own-label beer.
We host regular regular live music and arts happenings in our back room, on Sunday nights.
