This post is a tiiiinyy bit delayed however I still wanted to share it! I spent last weekend in London to celebrate my 21st with my boyfriend and these are just a few snapshots of what we got up to. We spent the Saturday noseying round the Christmas markets and then visited the tate, which i have been dying to visit for ages now! We then made our way to covent garden which had the most BEAUTIFUL christmas decorations and then finally headed to Heron tower to the Duck and Waffle restaurant which I've heard such amazing things about.
The Duck and Waffle is 40 floors up, which you get to via a very fast and very smooth glass lift. When you enter the bar area, it is absolutely packed with people. Obviously they all know how amazing and how exclusive this restaurant/bar feels. We were taken to our table and i literally cannot commend the customer service more. All the staff were always on hand, always catering to your needs, and i really don't think i've received such amazing service in any other restaurant..ever! I ordered the duck and waffle which is claimed to be the signature dish and boy it was definitely one of the tastiest meals I've had, despite earlier concerns at the mixing of duck egg, duck leg, waffle and mustard maple syrup. I backhandedly mentioned it was my birthday very early on in the night and thought nothing of it....and right at the end of the night the waiter brought out a little selection of tiny deserts, which completely surprised my boyfriend and I at how thoughtful and how well they must've listened! Afterwards we had a drink in the downstairs bar area and balcony, where the other restaurant, Sushi Samba is located. The view from the balcony was amazing, with a DJ playing music piped to all floors and heaters located around, the balcony was an amazing experience. I cannot recommend coming to Heron tower more.
I've piled together a little vlog of my trip just incase anyone wants to nosey! I'm going on holiday tonight so I've typed this up super fast as I'm buried under a pile of packing, sorting and tidying before my flight!
