I have been here several times for lunch. It's a very nice place with a lovely atmosphere, good service from friendly staff and the food is excellent. I have thoroughly enjoyed every meal I've had here and the portions are very generous. I will continue to return here to eat when shopping in Truro.

Stopped in for a few after work drinks having heard this was one of the happening spots in Truro. It was indeed hopping with revelers and music. the service was good, nothing special. The seating is very communal, so when it's crowded it can be difficult to find a place to rest the weary bones, but it is all in... More

Just popped in for a quick lunch before going to the Cathedral for an organ recital. Just a bowl of soup but delicious and the place had a nice ambience. Some interesting things on the specials board and we must go back for something more substantial another time.

This is a quirky little restaurant just down from the cathedral, a lovely location. It was fairly spacious inside and the tables were all at a good height for wheelchair access so I was pretty happy. Great atmosphere and a good amount on the menu, everything felt fresh to order and the portions were very generous. Happy to visit again!

I've visited The Old Grammar School multiple times before for drinks, however decided to eat last time. Not the most choice on the menu compared to some other places in Truro, however found something which sounded tasty! Me and my mum both ordered a pulled pork ciabatta, and had a bottle of wine. Our food was delicious and service was... More

The Old Grammar School serves a limited lunch menu from 1200 until 1500. The mezze is huge! We shared one between the two of us and still couldn't finish it and previously we have had two between three of us and could finish those either. Lovely mixed selection, although slightly spoilt by finding a hair in the olives! Dinner of... More

I've visited the old grammer school a couple times. Once for evening Tapas and once for lunch. Both were delicious. The tapas was incredible and such a variety it was hard to choose. The lunch was also delicious and very filling. All freshly made and quick service. Highly, highly recommended.
