Not cool? As the portions were big we both ate half of our sandwiches and decided to take the rest home only... More

Myself and 4 friends met for lunch, the good was amazing, good choice, all freshly cooked, cocktails were amazing and staff were brilliant. Could not eat all the food do if you haven't got an appetite, you could always share, there is enough for two.

This little restaurant is one of Truro's hidden gems! I love enjoying lunch here with my husband or my girlfriends during a shopping trip. Although the menu is limited and doesn't change greatly - I still adore the mezzo dish each and every time I order it. The non-alcoholic cocktails are refreshing and definitely worth trying.

Lovely surroundings and a buzz that is difficult to find in sleepy Truro. Great music, and a most acceptable gin martini (from one who knows). Probably the oldest group there that evening, but made to feel welcome.

I went in the evening with a couple of friends for birthday drinks, it was very busy and we shared one of the big tables with another group, we had amazing cocktails and a really lovely night. I would absolutely visit again.
