“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We were excited to visit here but it turned out to be an average over priced waffle house. We both had the chocolate and hazelnut waffle. The whole thing came out cold, didn't seem to be home made or fresh. It was really pricey and not worth the money. You had to pay an extra £1.65 just to have a scoop of ice cream or cream with it.

We’re sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our waffles, especially as we take pride in the fact that everything we serve is freshly prepared to order and is priced as competitively as possible, bearing in mind that we use high quality organic ingredients. We do our best to serve our food quickly so that diners can enjoy it while it’s hot. However, like all restaurants, we do make mistakes and we regret that you did not convey your concerns during your meal so that we could take immediate action. If you do give us another chance, please speak with the manager on duty if anything is below expectation.

“Came upon by accident.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We saw there was a walk in Verulamium Park when we were recently in St Albans. After walking around the perimeter we were ready for some refreshment when there, as if by a miracle, this apparition appeared...a Waffle House. But it was no mirage deceiving weary travellers. We went in to their marquee and were served the most melt-in-the-mouth delicious servings of waffles.
It was busy but the staff were very efficient and we didn't have to wait long. From now on my waffle standards are going to be so high other places will have a hard time competing.

“Great for breakfast!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

My husband and I have been to the Waffle House probably about 10 times and we absolutely enjoy it more and more each time. We didn't realise the Waffle House was open for breakfast and were delighted that we could have a romantic Valentine's day breakfast here by the fire. Absolutely perfect!!

“lashings of maple syrup...mmmmh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

After spending the morning walking around the Verulamium Museum we stopped at The Waffle House. It had been a wet day, but the car park was full (a good sign!). Initially we were told there would be a twenty minute wait, however we were being shown to our table withing 15 minutes (about 3pm). We all ordered drinks and various sweet and savoury waffles and did not have to wait long before they arrived. They were a decent size and very light. This review would have had 5 stars if they were a little hotter, however that didn't stop the maple syrup flowing, and six empty plates were a sign that we all enjoyed it.
We would definitely be visiting more often if we didn't live 100 miles away!!
On a separate note - The Waffle House is on the edge of the park, and we were there at 3pm on a wet Saturday afternoon in February and it was full. With better weather later in the year it might get even busier.

“very nice waffles :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Best waffle I've tasted in the uk (bannofie). Though I must say, it's always packed and really hard to get tables. I guess we are just lucky that day that we did not wait long. Would go back again with more friends and try their savoury offerings.
