From the outside you'd never think this small pub served such delicious top class food, the Sunday Lunch is amazing. No having to queue for Carvery, and the flavours are beautiful. Serving staff very kind and quietly efficient, quick service. Chef made a very generous cheeseboard up on asking. No wonder it's hard to get a table. Fabulous!

Although a long term resident of Truro, had never visited this city pub previously, although had heard nothing but good reports of the food and ambience. Visited, without a prior booking, for lunch mid-week. Shown to a table by the window and menus swiftly followed - set lunch (2 courses for £15) + a la carte menu. We chose from... More

We popped into this pub for a drink on the way out for a meal. Unfortunately this place was fully booked because the menu looked amazing. It was full of imaginative food featuring Cornish produce. It made me very hungry to read it. As it was we couldn't stay so we had some great beer from a huge selection and... More

We hopped over to Truro for a quick lunch on the back of other TA reviews and it was worth the trip. Service was super friendly and quick, and the food was excellent. I had cod and chips, and it was one of the best cooked, most tasty portions I've ever had, with delicious fresh peas and tartare sauce. The... More

We ate here for lunch today. One eater was diary and gluten free, the serving staff and chef were extremely helpful and accommodating to switching up the spring set menu for his DF/GF needs. Food was very nice and a nice pub. Mind your head on the beams if you're really tall though!

This pub has a great location with lots of outdoor seating opposite the beach. We visited for Sunday lunch, 4 children and 4 adults. The food was good, but the service was disorganised and very slow, so we had 4 children waiting for ice cream for over half an hour. The staff are friendly, but the service was slow on... More
