Lovely relaxed restaurant food was excellent. They went out of their way to accommodate us as they were fully booked. We had a table between 6-8 pm. This restaurant is dog friendly.

Been here twice for lunch while visiting Truro. Really great special board. The Taco's are amazing. Open friendly seating plan, staff attentive although if busy service a little slow - but the food well worth the wait..... Well return next time we are in this wonderful Cornish City.

This place never fails. The food is excellent. The menu is varied and interesting also great value for money. Bustling with people and comfortable seating. One of my favourite Truro eateries.

I have been to the old grammar school twice now and it is excellent. From service to the food and the drinks all have been top drawer. I would suggest trying the cocktail menu when you visit as they are very good.
