A group of twenty or so of us decided to have a gym group Christmas dinner at the Heron on the Lake. We've had a similar party there before so this review is something of a merge of both visits. While we cannot comment on the view (it was dark and about -3 degrees C outside) the style and decor... More

The staff are friendly and very prompt with the food. Our waitress asked us on numerous occasions if everything was OK and we were very happy to report that it was excellent xxx it's not cheap but the food was worth the price especially the crispy squid as a tangy starter xxx we would definitely go there again as their...

An absolutely great location! The drinks are very reasonable, the staff are friendly and there is a good range of food to chose from. It's cosy in the winter and superb in the summer with great views of the lake behind from the terrace. Well worth a visit!

Thank you so much for taking time to write a review on your experiences. It is indeed very cosy at the moment as the nights are drawing in early and we have our fires lit making it feel so homely and as you say in the summer sitting outside, you feel like you could be on holiday. We cant wait... More

Went there last Sunday with my family. We had table 16 which was in a beautiful setting overlooking the pond. We had excellent service which is unusual these days sadly. My only grievance was the Sunday Roast which did spoil our experience somewhat. I chose and recommended it based on what I had read in these reviews. Sadly our beef... More
