Smoked Salmon sandwiches were very good However the Staithe smokehouse prawns were very overpriced and just ok. Service was attentive and the pints of bitter were excellent.

Fantastic service and atmosphere. The outside area was great and surprisingly warm.

Hi, we booked a table for 4 online and notes that we would not get a confirmation email as you don't offer one. When we rang a few days later to amend the booking down to 3 people we were told we did not have a booking. We assumed we had made an error on the system. However we have now received an email from you asking for our feedback on our dining experience... which would suggest that we had a booking after all. It might be a good idea to consider sending a confirmation email to guests who have booked in order to avoid this kind of mix up - we certainly will not be booking with you until then in order to avoid further inconvenience and uncertainty. (I've had to put low star reviews as there is no option for not applicable).

A very nice meal in very nice surroundings. The pub also called me the next day to let me know I’d left my credit card on the table!

A most enjoyable first visit to The Hero and we’ll definitely be returning before very long. We loved everything about it, so take a bow everyone at The Hero.

We loved our stay at the Crown. The room was much nicer than the pictures. Airy, clean and lovely simple decor. Service was excellent. I loved the view our of the gorgeous period window to the trees in the square. We will be back

We didn’t stay. The restaurant was far too busy with total lack of self distancing and lack of ventilation. The evening before lockdown this was simply not a safe environment to dine.

Visited by luck on a visit around 18 months ago and had a great meal. Made a point of booking ahead so we could eat here on this visit. Lovely meal, delicious food, great service. Shame we had to leave to get our children to bed before they fell asleep on their plates. We’ll be back!

We had a fantastic time at The Hero. We’ve always been a fan of the pub but never eaten in the evening. The service was fantastic, waiting staff were all very efficient and friendly. Food was delicious, though I might have appreciated a some more unusual choices on the menu. Everything we ate was fantastic , however. Will be recommending to lots of people!
