its quite a nice ambience on a sunny day if you sit outside, but a limited menu....most of my friends love it but not being a great fan of waffles or sweet things I opted for the avocado and humous waffle.....I had to ask for a hunk of bread as I found hummous and waffle not a good combo. so...

Not my choice but a family meal so went along with good grace. Must admit I was impressed with the orderly queuing system (it was a busy Saturday lunchtime) and we were soon sat down at a table for 4. Can't fault the food other than no real choice if you don't fancy a waffle. All four of us wanted... More

We came here after a walk around the lake, which is literally opposite the restaurant, so would be ideal for pre-, or post- walk waffles! The Waffle House is set in an old stable (I believe) with a tented area, so you can be eating outside, without being fully at the mercy of the elements. The menu offers both savoury... More

Amazing waffles, service and venue!! Queued for 40 minutes for a table but worth the wait. Highly recommend.

Parking is available but can be very busy so either go outside lunch or expect to wait a while. Good choice on the menu. Staff were busy so not great service but acceptable. Wrong order came to table but was changed quickly. Even though it was busy we weren't rushed and we didn't wait long for the food.

I don't know what it is about waffles but you just can't go wrong. Sweet, savoury or a mixture of both. The waffles here are definitely big enough to class as a meal and don't break the bank. Can't wait to go back. However if you want a table, best to go during the week, as they don't take reservations,... More

Lovely delicous food. They have very friendly staff too. The place is not that big so its quite difficult on busy days. Sometimes you have to wait.

Had a lunch/brunch here. Excellent sausage and beans and cheese waffle. Top marks, will come again. Service ok, took a while to pay but not to worry. Will come again for sure! PS. You should take American Express cards!

Went here today after long walk with dog. We didn't want to eat just a drink outside on their patio. It was extremely busy inside with huge queues so a good place to eat waffles. I asked the manager if we could just have a drink outside as we had dog and a child with autism and it was very... More

Now a staple routine treat for a Sunday morning. They are dog friendly and do the most amazing food. Highly recommended to any visitors in St Albans.
