The Great Malpas Bake Off

Sunday 21st October 2018

Everyone is welcome to enter The Great Malpas Bake Off. This has been a huge success over the past 3 years and it gets bigger and better every year! The rules are simple, bring along your baked item to The Heron by 3.30pm, this will then be judges by an experienced chef who will announce the winners of each catagory at the end of the Harvest Festival auction.

The winner last year was one of the new locals to Malpas Tracey who created a cake that was inspired by the Cornish Coastline. The kids catagory was awe inspiring where a classic Mille Feuille was created that was worthy on any menu!

Join us for a fun day at The Heron. 


Wednesday 14th November 2018 from 6pm. £40 per head including a glass a fizz on arrival.

Join us for this one off evening of fine dining. The chefs at The Heron will all create one course each for this 5 course taster menu that will be held on Wednesday 14th November 2018. Limited spaces available so bookings only. 

During the evening, we have a couple of very special guests. Matthew Stevens from Matthew Stevens Fisheries will talk about his career in the industry that goes back over 70 years! Matthew is one of the key suppliers at The Heron Inn and someone who our head chef has worked with for many years. Matthew will talk about the fishing industry as well as the every growing issues our local fishermen face every day.

We will also be be joined by Louisa Fitzpatick who is the wine sommolier at St Austell Brewery. Louisa is bringing another special guest (TBC) and will talk about wine matching as well as some sampling on the evening.

Tables available from 6pm to 7pm.

Guests will start at 8pm.


The Heron Riverside Fireworks Display

Saturday 27th October 2018 from 4.30pm

Every year we will be hosting the annual Malpas Fireworks night. This is an event not to be missed. This year’s event was a massive success with many hundreds of people making their way in to Malpas and enjoying hog roast, pasties and hot mulled cider. The fireworks were set off from a large barge anchored in the river opposite the village, giving spectacular views and a sound track not found anywhere else.

We will be hosting the fireworks again in 2018 on the 27th of October with the scheduled set off time of 6:30pm. It is set to be bigger and better than before, so be sure to put the date in your diary and come up to Malpas for the best fireworks in town. This is slightly earlier this year due to the tide times so we will be celebrating this year with a Halloween theme. 

A shuttle bus from Sunny Corner will be available from 5.00pm to 6.30pm to The Heron and returning from 7.30pm to 9.00pm. Dontations for this service will be greatly appreciated.
