Cornwall rightly has a foodie reputation…..
…and Truro is no exception. Whether it’s a hearty meal in one of the city’s bistros, an authentic Italian or hot and spicy, there’s plenty of choice in our great little city.
If you’re looking for good honest Bistro dishes, try Bustophers on Lemon Street, or wander further up and find the Thomas Daniell. If you’re in town and fancy all day eating with lots of choice including tapas, check out The Lounge.
Newly opened JAKS look interesting - haven’t tried it yet…watch this space!
Talking of tapas, try The Old Grammar School for tasty bites along with a great selection at the bar including cocktails (alcoholic and non alcoholic).
Burgers and more
Burgers are always a family favourite and The Hub Box is perfect for when you want your burgers fresh and your fries dirty. Sams in the City is also excellent for burgers and has a great menu range including Secret Truro favourite, fish soup with roille. Oh Yum!
Nice and Spicy
Italian and Pizza
For honest old school Italian food, Pieros is the place to be “the best Italian food I’ve had since I was in Tuscany” commented a friend of the blog.
Vegetarian and Vegan
The Cornish Vegan recently won an award, and comes highly recommended
Hotel food sometimes hits the right note; for that you’ve got a choice of Mannings at the bottom of Lemon Street (Highly rated by Jay Rainer) and The Alverton Hotel, a little walk from the centre up Tregolls Road.
You can’t live near the sea and not hanker after fish of all sorts. There are a great number of Fish and Chip shops, but for lunches or evenings out try Hooked or, once again, Sams in the City for freshly caught fish (mmm, I’m thinking that fish soup again…)
Just outside Truro
Penrose Kitchen is just a couple of miles out of Truro in Shortlanesend. The food was delicious when I was there last and the Lily pond is beautiful.
The Heron Inn in Malpas is the perfect place for lunch or supper with a view. Great food and the perfect place to sit and spot the Herons on the other side of the Fal Estuary.
