I booked a party for 17 people for my wife's birthday party. We were allowed to decorate the table with balloons etc. On arrival we were all greeted with enthusiasm from the waiters. The service wasn't rushed and the food was excellent and the waitress even put a candle on my wife's dessert and got us all to sing Happy... More

Food was poor, View was lovely, Ducks, Swans, and water sports taking place. Cutlery and tables were sticky. Decor was all very mmm well not my cup of tea! TACKY comes to mind. Service was ok. We have not returned since, as very expensive and the Chef was not good enough to warrant the cost. Car park was big but... More

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 team, including Ben.

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.
