Drinks and tapas

Girlfriend and I went there for few drinks and food and ended up ordering a load of tapas. The tapas were very good and the cocktails really tasty. Maybe next time we won't bring the car!

Popped in on Saturday evening while in Truro visiting from London. Party of 3, we all had a cocktail they were delicious and quite reasonably priced. The blood orange mojito was the clear winner. Tapas looked fab but we already had a table reservation elsewhere. Really nice atmosphere will try the food on our next visit.

This is a cafe-bar style venue in an historic building, communal tables inside, outdoor seating in season. Can get crowded lunchtime, very popular with mum's and buggies! Good menu, try the 'Med Veg burger' excellent with fat chips. Been here many times and never disappointed.

My visit to the Old Grammar School was nothing less than splendid. I wouldn't just call it a school, I'd call it a University; an extremely enjoyable higher education for my tastebuds. I arrived at this delightfully quaint little venue at approximately 14 minutes past 6 on a cold Friday evening. Although my body was cold, my heart was soon... More
