“The prawn dish was more perfect than perfect - if this is possible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Once again a truly excellent experience at this wonderful restaurant.
The prawn dish was absolutely perfect - prepared and cooked to perfection - the batter was so light!
The staff and management were their usual welcoming, attentive and very friendly selves.
The food was accompanied by the excellent taste of a bottle of Betty Stogs
Look forward to returning again soon when next in Truro!

“A very good breakfeast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Light and airy place with a good location near the cathedral. We had a great late breakfast. My poached eggs on toast were perfectly cooked and my friends scrambled eggs and bacon really good too. Comfortable seating with newspapers to read. Will certainly return.

“Best breakfast in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Recommended this little gem by twitter follower. After quick read of the reviews, thought, why not?! BRILLIANT! Best breakfast I've had in ages (and I eat breakfast out a lot!). Staff fab, hogs pudding really tasty and they had soya milk! Seriously. You'd be surprised how many places still don't. Will certainly come again!

“Best breakfast in Truro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I popped in here for brunch today for 2 reasons, mainly down to the reviews on here but also because of the name (big Stone Roses fan). I had a big breakfast and Laura had a traditional and both were excellent. The sausages, bacon and hogs pudding were all exceptional although at £7.95 for the big breakfast you would be disappointed if the meat wasn't high quality. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and the staff are really chilled out too. We will be back again for the same again.
