The Waverley Tea Room served Shawlands since 2006 and closed suddenly in 2018.

Originally this building was a cinema called the Waverley Picture House which opened on 25th December 1922. The building was taken over by ABC in September 1929 and re-named ABC in 1964. After closure in March 1973, the venue became a bingo club, then a snooker club. The G1 Group opened it as “Tusk” bar/nightclub/restaurant which opened as ‘Tusk’ around 2003.
