This discreet establishment is where you go for grown up dining. Serene atmosphere and reliable dishes all contribute to a relaxing evening. As they are open for lunch will visit the next time we are in Truro. Tabbs has offered fine dining in this area for a long time. We can remember eating at this restaurant when it was at... More

Lovely evening with our best chums. Tabbs is a perfect setting for a relaxed evening out where you know that the ambience, welcome, service and food will be perfect - and so it was once again. Starters, main courses, desserts, cheeses, coffee, hand made chocolates, et al - all superb. The dishes are beautifully constructed from lovely ingredients perfectly cooked,... More

Chanced upon this lovely restaurant during a weekend visit to Cornwall. We were lucky enough to get a late notice booking on a Saturday evening and we were so glad we did. The lady running front of house was friendly and professional and the food was really great. The atmosphere in the restaurant was really good and general decor and... More

I took my partner here a couple of months ago after a successful work project as a treat. We were welcomed and sat in a little alcove by the fire with the menus, and had plenty of chance to look over them before we were served some of the wine we chose as we relaxed. Really nice touch. We were... More

Suggested by friends and our first visit. A really delightful evening with very attentive front of house service, a very varied and interesting menu and the food was of a very high standard. Wine was reasonable and only slight issue is we thought the cost of the bar drinks to be a little high. Would certainly recommend it to others... More

We review Nigel Tabbs' restaurant too often but it is hard not to when you have had another great meal. To keep it short and sweet, there is the best cooked guinea fowl we have ever had on the menu at the moment. We advise a visit before the menu changes.

Tabb's did not let us down. The waitress was friendly and the owner opened up early for us before a cinema visit. The food is locally sourced and the standard was high. Would thoroughly recommend
