I have been to the old grammar school twice now and it is excellent. From service to the food and the drinks all have been top drawer. I would suggest trying the cocktail menu when you visit as they are very good.

Nice interior, friendly waitress, good menu. The food was delicious and generous portions. I had pulled pork ciabatta and the wife, fried chicken tacos.

Went here one evening for a drink..as seen in photo!!. Loved this place, very nice staff and a very nice outside seating area. It was a lovely warm summer evening, the perfect place for a couple of perfect cheeky Mojito's. Will definitely return next time I'm in Truro next Summer.

Great little find in Truro. Range of tapas on offer was excellent, some slightly unusual takes on traditional tapas choices which was great. The nachos were exceptionally good, much better than a number of other tapas restaurants. The tortilla chips were huge and toppings were well flavoured. Cocktail menu also very good.

Group of 12 came here mainly for drinks, but got drawn in by the tapas menu. Food was lovely but the mojitos were sensational! So good we ended up absolutely trashed after trying every single one, twice.
