There’s something stressful inherent in the phrase 24/7, a feeling of rushing, of sleep-deprivation, a sense of the last resort. None of which you’ll be experiencing at Duck and Waffle as you watch the sun rise or set over the city of London and soak up all the rich architectural beauty therein.
You’ll also be enjoying some top notch fodder while you gaze out from the 40th floor windows. For most people, the last time they bought food from a 24-hour it came in a plastic box marked all day breakfast and was accompanied by 10 Lambert and Butler and a packet of Rizla, but your local petrol station is going to struggle to compete with the atmosphere, décor and menu of Duck and Waffle.
A strange mix of urban and elegant – graffiti on the walls is lit by chandeliers – this restaurant is undeniably flash, but with views as good as this, most of your attention will be elsewhere anyway. You can take it all in at the Heron Tower, Bishopsgate.
