Duck and Waffle Local
Sat, Sun 09:00–23:00
The closing time of 11pm felt rushed. I feel the duck and waffle late night vibe is not reflected here. You could sell the same menu out a van. It quacked like a duck and waffle but it’s effectively not duck and waffle.
It was ok. The duck schnitzel and mushroom pasta were good. The duck burger wasn’t good at all.
Few vegetarian options on the menu and the one they had they'd run out of with no alternatives suggested. Ended up having some sides and had to send one back. Not great. Ran out of other items on the menu too.
This branch does not have the view. But it does have the food. Plus, tends to not be as overbooked as the Liverpool Street brunch. Decor, ambiance and food is up to standard. Took a mate out, he loved it. Enjoy.
We are at the restaurant after a show at half 9. we had made a booking, however once we were seated we were not asked for our drink orders for 20 minutes, so I had to ask the waiter if we could be served. The restaurant was not particularly busy at this time.
I ordered the tenderstem broccoli for starters which was nice except for the peanuts sprinkled on top. This was not listed on the menu and meant I did not enjoy the small plate as I don't like peanuts. I think the menu should make it clear that the dish contains peanuts.
I had the duck snitchzel for Main, which was very nice.
First time visit was disappointing and we're not likely to return.
The food was hit and miss, especially for vegetarians. Carnivores did like the duck burger and duck wings but the only veggie main course is apparently bought in from outside!
The service was attentive at times but then completely absent for long periods. This was topped off by being presented with the bill during our desserts without asking for it!
There's a very limited selection of drinks (e.g. only 1 type of gin) and an expensive wine list.
Would echo some of the other reviews; it does feel like an overpriced fast food place.
The food was outstanding and the vibe was just what you wanted, busy but out of the hustle and bustle! The service was enthusiastic but unfortunately a little slow; there were a lot of groups around which meant we kept being missed. However when they did help us they were lovely.
The burger with fried egg was yummy, the duck-fat chips very good. Quick, friendly service during a busy lunchtime.
Delicious food! Highly recommended the full English breakfast!
Worse than expected. Dreadful service. Poor food. Surprisingly few waffle options.
Absolutely love the Dick and waffle, who’d have thought it would taste so good together!
The staff there are extremely friendly and it turned out be very nice dining experience in London.
The quality of duck and waffle dish has degraded. The duck was tough and small. So different from what I had 1 year ago
Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Easier to get a table than its sister restaurant! Got the duck & waffle, tastes good, but could be a bigger portion! Duck fat chips were tasty.
Took ages getting served. Also marked me as a no show.
We went to Duck&Waffle before a theater night and it's not too bad for this purpose - as the service was really quick, maybe even too quick - our food arrived within 15 min after we ordered it. Burgers & polenta balls were really good, as well as chocolate bar dessert. However I'm not sure about the ambiance - it seems to be like a premium fast food chain but not the restaurant I would go to regularly.
This was unfortunately not a good experience, very poor service and food which was disappointing, not worth a visit as there are so many great restaurant close by. Very slow service, ordered and received food before drinks arrived, no check back on food, which is pretty uninspired, DO NOT ORDER BBQ duck tongues, really cannot understand how these made it on the menu, about 90% cartilage, very unpleasant.
Food was good but service was slow.
Fantastic place and good location food and taste was near enough the same as their parent restaurant in the heron tower. Would definitely recommend
We had a lovely time at Duck & Waffle Local for a birthday. I loved the local burger and the food food was good!
It was very good.
Amazing food, staff were so helpful and were there when we needed them. Would recommend all of the desserts! Definitely be back.
Very good service
We recommend the donut filled with duck and mango sauce as it is delicious and the flavours blend harmoniously. The menu is not as big as the D&W in Liverpool Street but we were satisfied with pir options. If you don't fancy duck, there are other options available too. My favourite was the dessert, caramelised banana with peanut butter ice-cream covered in chocolate
I absolutely love the Foie Gras Creme Brûlée! It's what I loved in the original Duck & Waffle. Everything we ordered was delicious, too -- Duck & Waffle, Pulled Duck Bao, Mushrooms Ravioli. It's comfort food!
There was just 1 serving staff who was probably new whom would pass us to another whenever we had questions or requests, which I find odd, as a regular restaurant-goer.
Service was a bit hit and miss. Ordered a starter, which I was then told they had ran out of - just as the rest of my table got served theirs. I asked for a different starter but this didn't arrive until my main had come out. The duck and waffle was good! And there was a good choice of items on the menu.
First time at Local branch, fantastic food as always and cozy spot in great location for a night out!
Went after going to a duck and waffle in heron tower and was severely disappointed! Not up to the same standard - burger was very dry and unremarkable
Very tasty and staff were kind and helpful
The service was a bit slow & also hit & miss. There was a new waiter delivering everyones food to the wrong tables. Took a while to place order & then it came out wrong - my new side order then went to someone else! Drinks were slow - even though the restaurant wasn't all that busy. Food was delicious. I'd go back - but not if I'm in a rush.
My wife and I both ordered the duck and waffle and were disappointed. The duck was beautifully crisp and the maple mustard syrup was superb. The atmosphere was very modern and fun. Definitely recommend!
The food was a middling standard for the price and service was lacking. I wouldn't go back, but it wasn't a bad experience all in all.
First time visiting and no real complaints!
We arrived just before 4 so had to wait for the main menu to start as it was still brunch. Ordered the duck wings and bread for starters which were very well cooked and presented! (I need that recipe for the marinade!)
Ordered the local burgers for mains and the chips and they were cooked very well and tasted very good! The dessert took a long while to arrive, I think they forgot our order as the waitress came and asked if we had it yet, but this was promptly corrected and the fudge brownie waffle was worth the wait!
All in all a good find and definitely will visit again if we’re in the area
We booked a table and were ended seated behind the bar area. Not sure if this is overflow but it really felt like it. We were served by about 4 different people which also meant we were forgotten about a few times. In the end when we finally were able to get the bill, the bartender who closed out the bill was great. Really kind and friendly. Hopefully we are luckier next time.
Very substandard and not what I expected. Some strange flavours and combinations in a very ordinary environment. Duck and Waffle Local? It sounds like a convenience store!!
Duck N Waffle always delivers in relation to taste, new alternative menus and vibes
The collie-flower dish is majestic - one of the tastiest dishes I’ve eaten this year, full of yummy awesomeness!
Keep reinventing ;)
it is very delicious but not expensive! I will come once again
Brilliant greeting, we were even told where the toilets were! Our waiter Antonio was extremely friendly and attentive. We will be back
Average burgers and stone-faced, impersonal service. Strange layout as well. Basically an overpriced fast food joint.
