I haven't been to The Heron Inn for a long but am so glad we decided to pop in for lunch whilst walking and geocaching from St Clements. The food was excellent and so was the service. The atmosphere was relaxed and we loved it....More

Took the walk from St Clements to Malpas this morning and stopped for breakfast at the Heron inn. Lovely fresh cooked breakfast. Friendly staff and the toilets are probably the cleanest I’ve used. I have also been here for a roast which was also brilliant.
