Our Kitchen Cafe
The Kitchen serves freshly cooked breakfast, lunch, light snacks, afternoon tea, hot & cold refreshments and of course our large range of home baked cakes. As well as our core seasonal menu we have home-cooked specials to look out for.
We are a licensed café offering a drink with your meal (or even with your cake!).
Everything in our kitchen is made from scratch and has that homecooked taste. At the Heron we don’t offer ‘fast food’; we serve freshly made food as fast as we can.
Heron Homebaked Cakes
All of our Heron cakes, scones brownies and traybakes are made in the Heron Kitchen by our baking team. We use tried and tested family recipes – many Emma learned baking with her Granny - and others we have discovered and love.
We pride ourselves on the quality of ingredients used in our cakes – no scone mixes or butter alternatives here! – to create over 25 regular homebakes and several seasonal additions.
See what's on offer daily or ask our team.
Cream Teas are available every day while that day’s scone stocks last, our scones are baked every morning to ensure the freshest taste and flavour.
Call ahead on the day to ensure we keep your choice of scone aside; choose from plain, fruit or cherry, served with Devon clotted cream and jam.
Includes a pot of tea of your choice.
15.95 per person
/ 21.95 incl. a glass of prosecco
Heron Afternoon Teas are currently available Monday to Thursday at 3pm. All our sweet and savoury treats are baked and prepared in-house.
Your cake stand will feature our favourite heron sandwiches, savouries and cakes, including a mini scone of your choice with jam and clotted cream.
Gluten Free Options Available
Our gluten-free cakes are sourced from dedicated GF bakeries to ensure these are suitable for a coeliac diet.
If you have a food allergy or a special dietary requirement please inform a member of our team for assistance and advice on ingredients used in our meals.
All our meals and cakes (except our GF cakes) are freshly prepared on our premises, where nuts, mustard, soya, celery, fish, shellfish, sulphites and gluten/wheat are used.
Cosy and comfortable atmosphere
Take in the breath taking views across the fields from our café area and choose whether to cosy up near to our wood burning-stove, perfect for those autumn or winter days, or make use of our outdoor seating area to enjoy the fresh air.
The Heron is dog friendly - we have reinstated an allocated seating area indoors for customers with dogs, or you are welcome to make use of our outdoor seating area, where we have created covered ‘dog pods’. Please bring your dog round the left of the building to our designated dog access door rather than through our food shop.
