* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Interesting food in an intimate dining room” makes Nigel Tabb’s former pub a “favourite local fine-dining venue”, making “great use of local Cornish ingredients”. It also helps that there’s a “small but well-constructed wine list which offers exceptional value”. It’s “a little difficult to find, away from the centre of Truro, but worth the effort”.

“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”.

For 33 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).
