I have used The Heron as a watering hole for almost 30 years and never thought I would see the day that it would become one of if not the best place to eat locally as the pub has never had any reputation for food until now. Great value food during the week with plenty of choices on an ever changing menu, excellent portions served by friendly staff in a relaxed atmosphere. All main meals charged at the same price which I find refreshing rather than loads of differing prices with the option of a Starter or Dessert as a 2 course meal for only £1 more! Sunday lunches very good and very popular best to book. I would be amazed if anyone ate here and wouldn't return! Well done Bob, Kim and staff! I would thoroughly recommend you give The Heron a try. And the beer's always very well kept!

We were told about this restaurant/pub and it has some really good reviews, we've lived in Herne Bay for 12 years so we thought we'd give it ago. We were not disappointed it was lovely friendly and delicious. I had chicken breast, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, cabbage, peas, a parsnip and cauliflower and broccoli cheese..YUM there was also lashings of gravy. I had banoffee pudding for sweet which was really well done, the only complaint was it was served in a wine glass which meant because if the smaller opening you had to eat it top to bottom and not all together unless you dug down with your elbows in the air!! i really don't think a sweet should be served in a wine glass, there are plenty of glass bowls for an alternative and at £5+ it was expensive too.
We would go back for a sunday meal

One disabled, and a child were part of our group for traditional Sunday lunch. It's a great family pub. Very friendly staff. Fresh vegetables, choice of 3 meats or a fish dish or a huge steak & kidney pudding were on the board today. Fresh fruit, lemon meringue pie, chocolate fudge cake, a crumble or ice cream was the choice for desserts - I hand the lemon meringue and it was delicious.
This is not a modern restaurant or a chain, just great fairly priced fresh food. Very British!
