Description: One of Hertfordshire���s favourite restaurants, The Whistling Duck combines urban chic with country charm. This contemporary, design-led dining room is set in relative countryside, overlooking the River Lea in the grounds of the Riverside Garden Centre, providing a dining experience of a quality more usually seen in cities. Warmly welcoming, The Whistling Duck���s dining room is bright and airy during the day - thanks in part to large windows - becoming intimate and cosy as the sun goes down, lights are dimmed and candles lit. During the summer months you might choose to take advantage of a spacious al fresco area, surrounded by local flora and fauna. Your evening begins with a drink in the comfortable bar area with its low leather armchairs and array of wines, beers and cocktails before moving to your table to peruse the menu. The Whistling Duck���s Head Chef Steve Bower strongly believes in supporting local producers and suppliers, and therefore his seasonally changing menus have a truly local flavour, celebrating the best of British in modern and creative dishes as well as those of a more traditional sort.
