I have visited Mannings a few times before and I have always enjoyed the experience. The food is very good (quite expensive though), The staff are helpful and welcoming and the facilities are clean and tidy. I would reccomend this restaurant to anyone in Truro for the day.

Stopped here for dinner and had a great burger and chargrilled chicken. Very friendly and helpful staff and very clean restaurant. Don't be put off that this is a hotel restaurant. Well worth a visit

I came here on a weekday for lunch with my parents and whilst we had a perfectly pleasant lunch I did feel that the place was missing something in character. We went in without a booking and there was plenty of seating - we were attended to right away, being given somewhere to sit. The decor is clean and modern... More

My husband and I popped in to celebrate our Anniversary Lunch. Annie was there, so kind, providing us with a table for two in the window and immediately making us feel very special. As it was lunch time we both had the Chowder. It was excellent. Really tasty with a hint of spice. Super. My husband then had the spotty... More

We stopped in for a late lunch following a morning of shopping and first impressions were very good, a smart bar and a nice eclectic menu. Once settled in and having some time to have a deeper look, the place could use a bit of freshening up. The upholstery in our booth was torn and the flooring looked a bit... More

The restaurant has smart decor, however it is looking a bit tired in places e.g. ripped upholstery in booths. The service is really good and the waitresses were very friendly. The menu doesn't change that frequently and is a little bit boring, but the food is a good standard and I really enjoyed the steak sizzler I had. I think... More

This is a great bar to have an early evening drink, good selection of wines, beers and cocktails. The restaurant produces good food an achieves at the level it aims for. Felt with a little more attention to the basics it could be better. However for the prices it charges the quality is good, it is half the price of... More

We love coming to Mannings for lunch. Its a great way to break up a day of shopping, for some wonderful food, great company, and little sit down! The staff have always been extremely friendly and well presented. I highly recommend the steak baguette, its cooked perfectly and simply delicious. I can't wait to visit again soon.

Quality food and service. Excellent location. Having just had a terrible experience with a different restaurant in Truro I was even tempted to give it a 5.
