Great service - good and interesting food. Background music was a little intrusive. Very convenient to the Royal Theatre - Haymarket.

Really delicious combination of Duck and waffle! My high expectations were met when I took a bite of the crispy duck confit and the mustard maple syrup was an interesting mix that worked well to tie it all together! Booked and went on a Monday night and restaurant wasn’t busy, only 3-4 tables were filled including me and my friend, but don’t know how it would be for a busier time so best to book in advance. Great portion for value as well.

Nice and not overly busy for a Saturday brunch. Menu could be more descriptive as it is a bit of a guessing game as to what you are getting.

The eggs in the shakshuka were extremely overcooked, straight up hard, even though as promised by the server they should be over easy.

Very important to flag that this is not the rooftop duck and waffle. Made this mistake but happily the food was still delicious. Would highly recommend the pornstar martini and duck burger!

The signature dish “duck and waffle” was disappointing: the duck leg was obviously re-fried and as a result too dry. The waffle was good, as was the deconstructed cheesecake. Having said that it was similar to Muller Corner yogurt. The burger was average but the chips were very good. Doubt I would go back.

I already recommended this place to my friends. The food was amazing. The experience was even better than the original Duck & Waffle. We had a great time and the staff really helped with that as well.

Again, thanks!

The duck and waffle was amazing and the burger was delicious
Dessert was a bit of a left down got the brownie waffle quarter piece of wall and a few chunks of brownie with a small blob of ice cream which wasnt the nicest

But that was fine as the food really lives up the reputation

Food is really good. No where to put coats so not ideal when you are wearing many layers and have a bigger bag.

I’d heard good things about the original Duck & Waffle, but never been. I was looking for a place for a bite to eat pre-theatre so thought I’d give the ‘Local’ version a try. Have to say that I thought it was pretty bang average, and even with happy hour drinks (I don’t count £5 for less than a pint of beer as happy) the bill still came to almost £70 for 2 of us with 2 mains and 1 side only. Food was decent in parts, service was erratic. In short, there are better restaurants in central London at this price point and the experience here has put me off visiting the original, supposedly more premium, restaurant.

Nice and quick service. We had the duck and waffle and the duck leg portions seemed to vary a lot in size. not great value for money but ok.

Some of the food items were luke warm and drinks arrived towards the end of the meal. Discretionary service of 12.5% was hard to be removed from the bill and seemed to take it personally.

We were 1 of 2 tables for the 45 minutes we were there. We were sat first, however the other table were given menus and water. We waited for a while for the same, then had to ask someone to give us menus. Considering there were just 6 of us in the whole restaurant, the service was incredibly slow.

The breakfast did however make up for it.

Lovely manager, let us try the new burger as we were disappointed that the local burger isn't on the menu any more. They do remove plates a little fast but maybe that's just efficiency.

Simply superb service and food - we passed the day before and popped in for a drink as it looked pleasant and we couldn’t resist stopping back for food the next day. The front of house remembered us and all the staff were efficient and friendly.
Can’t wait to be back next time we’re in London!

It's an okay place, but they don't have a GF menu or allergens clearly displayed on the menu. Nice choice of food, nothing too impressive. The door is continuously left open by entering customers making the entire place very cold in winter.

Really great atmosphere and the food was delicious. Got in just before happy hour finished so we got some really nice cocktails at good prices. Compared to the ‘offical’ duck and waffle place, this far beats it on seats available and price!
