A photograph in possession of the current occupant (1998) shows this relatively early, L-plan complex is fundamentally intact and indicates its long-standing role as a coaching inn. Set on a prominent corner site, the Waterloo Arms remains a significant landmark in Chirnside. See separate list entry for the nearby Waterloo Cottage (originally part of the same complex).
