I went here with the rest of my family for a nice lunch out. The place was very busy and we picked up the last available table. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. There were some odd twists on the dishes, for example my dad's pulled pork had fennel in, but they were pleasant surprises. The staff were... More

Came here with a large group of girlfriends for a hen night. Brilliant venue. Had the £10 a head party menu and it seemed to go on for ever with more tapas being delivered to our table. Great friendly service and with a smile too. Fab atmosphere and extremely busy. Good cocktail list and nice area for sitting outside. Always... More

I visited here this week for the fourth time and I have to say that the food and service was excellent as usual. I don't like to review too soon in case it's just a fluke but this level of service and standard of food is consistently good. What is nice to see is regular staff who know the menu... More

Ordered burger & fries - asked the waitress what it came with, she didn't seem to know, so went off to find out. When she returned, I expressly asked for no dressings of any kind - can you guess what I'm going to say next? Yup....came with mayonaisse on. A minor thing, but irritating when you go out of your...

Hi Gary, firstly I must apologise again for your bad experience at The Old Grammar School. I was working so I am aware of your problem. The waitress in question was on her second shift for us so there was some information that she would need to double check. You asked for no dressing, as the burger comes with a... More

I have to be open and honest with regards to the Grammar school, the service was 1st class, friendly, well delivered but sharp but without being over the top. The none alcohol cocktails were fresh new and were very well received, really well done. The menu was well written with lots of new Ideas with some old classics that fitted... More

Turned up Saturday lunchtime to find hardly a spare seat in the house,the friendly staff had us seated in no time. I'm not surprised it was full after the amazing lunch we had. Can't wait to return.

We sat outside at lunchtime and service was very slow. My diet coke was served in a lowball tumbler full of ice so was probably only 150ml. Food arrived without cutlery and condiments so was getting cold by the time they arrived. The food was nice but no wow factor. The dessert selection was so poor we didn't bother -... More

It excels in every way. Brilliant atmosphere, exceptional staff and food to tell your friends about. The place to be on a sunny Friday evening in Truro. Perfect for ages 8-80. A fantastic experience and one I look forward to enjoying again in the near future.

Great atmosphere, very laid back lazy lunch land. Perfect for a cheeky afternoon drink, try their Hoopers for any of you that like alcoholic ginger beer. Food is lovely, service friendly and before you know it you'll have stolen away a few precious hours.

I love having lunch here as the food is scrummy and every time I come to Truro this is my place of choice and the fresh non alcoholic are delicous
