The Herring

Sample Dinner Menu

6pm to late

The days are spent in slow preparation

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.

We will be welcoming non-residents from 1st November. Maximum group size is 6 people.
