We love the Heron as the food is excellent, the staff are good and very attentive. The location is great overlooking Fleet pond and when the weather is nice gets pretty busy so book in advance.

Business lunch on a Monday, clearly popular place every day. Went for the pork belly with chips and egg. Great taste and beautifully cooked. Staff very pleasant and attentive. Not rushed. Lovely view over lake too. Recommended, reasonable prices.

The food was fabulous, room was perfect for our gathering and the lady waitress was exceptional. We pre-ordered in view of the size of the party but food was on time and options offered where it was not available on the night.

I love the concept of sharing bundles of four dishes. If you're out with friends it's a very convivial approach and very tapas like. My favourite is duck croquettes and I love their triple cooked chips.as usual, warm and friendly service from Dee and her...More

Visited around 2:30pm on a particularly sunny day without reservation. Took about 30-40mins to be seated, despite there only being two of us. Food was reasonable, but the service wasn't fantastic.

We had the best waitress every,she was kind, attentive, helpful and patient. The food was nice, but nothing special. The mash tasted like smash? The meat was chewy and not much of it for the price. The pudding was nice.More
