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!

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.

Lovely setting near to the cathedral, down a quiet street. We sat outside with the sun shining. The service was friendly and the coffee a delight. Will eat there next time.

TOGS is great - for a relatively small venue it manages to be consistently good for lunch, with great cocktails in the evening and a fab atmosphere. Definitely a 'must visit' on any night (or day) out in Truro.
