Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lovely tasty food, quick service. Would recommend. Only gripe was being sat in the outside area, although there were heat lamps we were put right next to the tent opening which mean every time someone walked in and out we got a blast of cold...air which wasn’t idea on a cold windy day. Had to make use of the blankets they had on offer.More

Superb friendly and efficient service, and lovely food. Not been there for many years and enjoyed returning and certainly will be back! Yes, there was a queue, but it moved quickly.

Super friendly staff and extremely fast service could not ask for more. The waffles was the best I have had and hash brown was delicious.

I absolutely love the waffle house! We visited the one in South Africa many times when we lived there and it’s wonderful to have this GEM 💎 on our doorstep in St Albans, this morning was particularly cozy with the fireplace roaring and absolutely gorgeous...coffee and food!

I had visited The Waffle House many times before but this was my first visit for an evening meal. As per previous times the food was of a very high standard and the service also very good. At the time of my visit it had...only been serving the evening menu for a short time but there appeared to by many people there. You will need to book for the evening but it is worth it! Very enjoyable!More

Haven't been back to this place in years having moved away from the area but when a school friend was visiting back from Australia how could we not choose this location? What a lovely lunch we had!! It's just as wonderful as I remember it...& just as accommodating!! Menu had been dusted but also included the old classics like the Dutch apple. I went for the bbq pulled pork this time to try something new & wasn't disappointed Thankyou to all the staff for a wonderful lunch.More

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GO THERE We are a family of 6 and we used there car park which has a 2 hour time limit. The service was slow and they got our order wrong so we exceeded the time limit. We spent £179 on food...there and then got a £100 parking ticket. Went back to ask them to help as it was their fault. They did nothing. I'm never going there again.More

So nice to finally eat in a place with smiley, efficient and friendly staff! Waffle House quite clearly run well, other restaurants should take a look at the service! Really enjoyable lunch, buzzy atmosphere and a breath of fresh air. Banoffee waffle and Meatball waffles...will def be a weekly thing for me! Tgese guys know how to make coffee too! Small queue but worth the wait, didn't feel rushed and the staff were all lovely. Will def visit againMore
