Something to Waffle About

Books, food and cats.  My three greatest passions in life (apart from hubby of course!), not necessarily in that order.

I love to eat, try new recipes and restaurants, places that I’ve read about, with good reviews and interesting menus.

Recently Hubby and I had the chance to try the Duck and Waffle.  It was a fantastic experience.    The Duck and Waffle is on the 40th Floor of the Heron Town in the city of London so you can imagine what the views were like!  In some ways it is better than The Shard because you are lower down in the Heron Tower so you can see more detail.

Generally it has good reviews on Trip Advisor and although some reviews said the food was average, I have to say I don’t agree.

The food was delicious and the whole feel of the restaurant was pretty amazing!  I was too busy looking at the views to concentrate on what I wanted from the menu!

Only downside for me was the glass lifts on the outside of the building….not great for somebody who is afraid of heights!!
