“Lovely food”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We went to the Mannings restaurant in Truro for lunch today a group of three adults, the service was quick, efficient and staff friendly. The food was of a good standard and the portions were appropriate for lunch. I would recommend this restaurant particularly for adults, it's not really that suitable for young children as most visitors are mature and too much child noise was frowned upon by other dinners.

“Delicious & stylish!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This was our third lunch at Mannings, and they've been consistently good. Service was excellent; attentive & friendly, the atmosphere is stylish and the food is delicious. Our waitress, Ann, really looked after us. If I have a criticism I'd say that the veggie options are a bit light on choice, but we really enjoyed our meal. The mango meringue sweet was particularly good.

Mannings makes a much nicer option to the same-everywhere-you-go alternatives offered by the High Street restaurant chains.

Highly recommended.

“Wow what a find”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We found this restaurant by accident, wow what a find. A modern ambience with lovely helpful staff. 6 of us walked in . We asked for a table and whilst we had a drink they organised a table for us. The menu is amazing with beautifully presented well cooked food. I rarely eat everything but I did here. We all had something different as well. Really yummy. And very reasonable. We all loved it and will go again when in that area. Thanks staff you were great.

“Disappointed!!! First and last time !”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

As we went into manning s , the two barmen continued their conversation for about 3/4 mins and then decided to ask what we wanted to drink ? And as he was pouring our drinks they continued their conversation !! So we had to rudely interrupt them to ask if they had a table for four,to be told 'go up there and ask the girl'!!! So we did and the lady found as a table and gave us the menu s.
It wasn't too busy but we waited about half an hour for our food to arrive, and quite frankly when it did ,it def wasn't worth the wait!! Both myself and my partner had the sizzling steak dish with Brie , not only was the steak tasteless and chewy the whole dish was swimming in grease! So I left it my daughter and her boyfriend had the burgers which were equally disappointing , mc Donald's chips , prob an Iceland bap and certainly not a home made burger for £22 for the two burgers (plus extra for bacon , cheese) was not expecting this at all , the waiters and waitresses were disinterested , no atmosphere and over priced tasteless food ,so hence we will not be back , front of house were very unwelcoming ! Nice building shame about staff and food !

“Delicious Fish Finger Sandwich”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We both ordered the homemade fish finger sandwich and it was delicious however do not order it with the house salad, it is more or less the same as the salad garnish you get anyway with the addition of 2 slices of cucumber and a cherry tomato cut in half, the french fries however are delicious. The diet coke was horrible and from the looks of the drinks left on other tables we were not the only ones who thought so, we hope that this was just a one off on that day.
