On the doorstep of the historic town of Hertford, The Whistling Duck is a unique dining experience, complete with an A La Carte restaurant, lounge bar and tranquil riverside terrace. You’ll find us tucked away on the banks of the meandering River Lea, overlooking the charming Hertfordshire countryside.

Head Chef Marlon Erne and his team craft an innovative menu of Modern British cuisine, full of tasty dishes and outstanding produce. Marlon’s training in the Philippines and love of full Asian flavours also makes a feisty appearance in a dish or two. In 2014 we launched our popular Grill Menu, which is served alongside the A La Carte menu, excluding Saturday evenings.

Whether you’re joining us for a relaxed lunch, business breakfast meeting, wedding reception or a chilled glass of Prosecco on the terrace, we look forward to offering you a warm welcome to our riverside oasis.
