I haven't been here, but I would say in its favour that it is a direct descendant of the Anerley Tea Garden.

A loop of the Croydon Canal remained full of water for several decades. In 1841 a public garden was opened in the land between the former canal and the railway, which included a rustic Swiss cottage that served as a tearoom, a bandstand and a maze.

The railway advertised day tickets by advising that “Marquees are Erected in the Wood, close to the Anerley station and Parties using the railway will be permitted to angle in the adjacent canal, which abounds in fish.”

The garden had closed by 1868. The canal was replaced by Ridsdale Road and the area developed with housing.

The Anerley Arms was established in the former refreshment room of the Anerley Tea Garden in about 1868. But it was later rebuilt.
