The Herring is a quiet, intimate place to enjoy stunning views and beautifully-prepared, fresh Cornish produce.

Coastal food in the coastal landscape

April 12th to May 16th, Friday to Tuesday 12pm-6pm

Makes sense, doesn’t it? Where better to serve coastal-inspired food than out in the sea air? So before our full re-opening on May 17th, we’ll be decking out our dune garden for daytime dining on the airy clifftops. See you out in the Cornish sunshine!

Dinner

We’re saving this one until our full re-opening on May 17th

The Herring makes the most of Cornwall’s most precious produce. Dinner here goes a little differently: it begins with a set of sharing plates sent to the table from the kitchen — the day’s picks for all to share and sample. Three options are on the menu for main: meat, fish and vegetarian. A simple, but difficult, choice is offered for dessert.

£40 per person
