The Waffle House has a long tradition of being great for families. My children, and now my grandchildren, enjoy the waffles. It has a lovely position, near the park, where you can have a walk before lunch to build up an appetite. The service is friendly and helpful. Today, I indulged in one of their specials, a vegetable curry with... More

Never fails to serve great quality food. Large portions, savoury or sweet waffles are all tasty and great value. Busy venue so may need to queue but worth the wait. Dog friendly.

Came to St Albans especially for Waffle House. Had to queue for about 15 min, which is always a good sign! Had all the specials, so started with the Ham Hock, Horseradish Cheese Sauce & Slaw Savoury waffle as my main which was nice enough, but wanted more punch in the cheese sauce! The dessert of Apple & Blueberries with... More

Very impressed with the Waffle House, the menu and the staff. Whether you want something Sweet or Savoury there's something for everybody. It was very busy but we didn't have to wait long for our table. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. We only encountered one problem - which waffle to choose!

Despite being February half term, with a queue out the door, the staff were very quick and efficient with our group (who arrived over the course of half an hour!) The food is always fresh and delicious, but a special mention must go to how well the staff handled such a busy morning. Pay rises all round! 👏

I've been here a few times. Always enjoy the food and staff are friendly. You can't book which is annoying as it means you always have to queue outside to wait for a table. The queue moves quite quickly and service is generally quite quick. I would recommend !

We had been with some friends to a local museum on a cold, wet Sunday afternoon so this was very welcome. The waffles were simply superb. I had the banana & cinnamon and it was to die for. My partner had the chlli con carni waffle and that was also well received. The waffles were just the right size ...... More

Food always good - we were a large party with kids too. This place is always busy and we had to wait a while but only about 15mins. The food was delicious- and the kids throughly enjoyed the milkshakes as did some of the adults. Loved the freshly made guacamole too. Need to go again soon!
