“Hidden gem”“a bit pushed for space” but “intimate”“off the beaten track in Truro” that’s “well worth seeking out” for chef Nigel Tabb’s “skillful use of seasonal Cornish ingredients” and also the wine list: “well-chosen, with descriptions you can rely on; a good selection by the glass; and some really interesting bottles; all at very reasonable prices”.

“An intimate fine dining establishment a little out of the centre” that’s “head and shoulders above anything else in Truro” owing to its “brilliant” classical cuisine and “excellently chosen” wines. Top Tip: “Nigel’s monthly Sunday roasts are always special and allow him to show off more of his flair”.

Local luminary Nigel Tabb’s “great, local fine dining” haunt is a “continued culinary delight”, achieving a “great balance of flavours and textures” in a romantic, and surprisingly spacious, setting.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
