The Heron Inn Pub sits beautifully on the side of the River Truro. It has majestic views over the river and is the ideal for un-winding from any busy day. Our opening hours are 11.30Am to 11pm , and good traditional pub fayre is served from 12pm to 2.30 And 6.30Pm to 8.30Pm we provide a general menu that offers pananis, sandwiches, deli platters, and traditional pub favourites and this menu is enhanced by 2 specials boards one being seafood . We would like to add that the Heron Inn is not a fine dining restaurant . Come and enjoy the ambience, good traditional hospitality and lovely friendly locals.

good food, service, location

Good food at a reasonable price, fast service for a busy Thursday evening in mid March and a good location later in the year.

My partner and I took our close family members out to lunch in Truro and chose the heron inn for its beautiful view and previous good experiences. Today... AWFUL food. (Panini & Fish pie especially) Sorry guys but staff didn't even ask us and left feeling robbed.

We are sorry about your review perhaps you would like to get in touch and we can sort something out for you. The staff are told to go and check tables so why you were not checked will be looked into. Our fish pie is one of our favourite sellers we do get lots of good feedback about it so... More

The beer was really good. The Landlady was keen to ensure we had an enjoyable evening, which we did. Had a family meal here and they certainly cater for all different tastes and appetites.

We visited The Heron after a trip to Truro on Sunday. I assume we were greeted by the same Mr personality that has been mentioned previously. We were very causally passed off (between chews of the chewing gum) and told to 'help ourselves' to a table. He barely looked up to acknowledge us. We ordered drinks and the Roast beef... More

We have been concerned about this review as we feel there are discrepancies in it .

The best steak pie that I have ever tasted. Pastry light but crispy. Vegetables hot and cooked to perfection. Extra pots of gravy. Delicious
