Welcome to the Heron Inn

The Heron Inn is a beautiful riverside gastropub on the outskirts of Truro, overlooking the Truro and Tresillian river where they join the river Fal. It boasts stunning views across the estuary and is accessible by both car and boat.

Malpas is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with breath taking views of the rivers and surrounding hills. Covered in trees and foliage, the colours are exciting all year round, and even more so in autumn when the valley comes alive in a sea of reds, browns and yellows. There are fantastic walks from the village to the surrounding countryside, including the riverside walk to the picturesque village of St. Clement, and then onward to Tresillian.  Read more about the local area.
