The Waiting Room is quite a surprising find, tucked away in a little side street in Eaglescliffe. It's won several national awards, and rightly so.

The meal we had there was amazing: mushroom, mixed lentil and roast cherry satay sauce with brown rice, followed by a shared piece of Bakewell tart, which they made sure to save specially for us, as I think we were the only vegans in the place. Friends had a walnut salad, chickpea stew, quesadilla, and a piece of sticky toffee pudding, all of which they loved.
