Our menu is carefully created by our award winning chef/owner Nick Hemming using only local seasonal ingredients from the South West. Each dish is cooked to order by the team at The Heron with flavour being the priority for our customers. You will find a great choice of daily specials that change dependant on seasonality and availablility. 

You can follow Nick at most of the food festivals in the South West where he is a popular face on the chefs theatre stage, including the Padstow Christmas Festival. Nick has been cooking for over 28 years and has a passion for fresh fish. His recipes are frequently published in magazines, local press & books, including The Great Cornish Food Book, Padstow Festival Cookbook & The Flavour Fest Cookbook.

"The views are simply breathtaking and being able to cook my style of food using some of the best produce in the Country is something that really excites me" says Nick

The Heron Inn recently won Highly Commended at the Cornwall Tourism Awards 2019, Taste of the West Gold Award for Best Dining Pub 2017/18. The judges were really impressed with the quality of food being served and the approach to only using local produce.
