Lovely seeing such lovely comments left by our customers Many thanks Yvonne General Manager

Reviewed 9 April 2022 via mobile

Was stunned a few weeks back to see Emma had been replaced... and was NOT impressed with the replacement. Rude, overbearing, could see that under his management the place would slide back to the pre Hungry Horse tenure... so today, seeing aa new and familiar...name on the welcome board was really lovely! The Heron needs a good strong GM and Yvonne fits it to a tee, never rude, but firm with difficult customers (this is a pub that needs a person who can handle such people without antagonising them further). So congratulations to Yvonne, and with Marie and the rest of the team behind you, success is guaranteed!More
