Eat and Drink in Truro
Truro has a wide variety of cafes, delis, large and small restaurants many using locally sourced food representing wide range of world cuisines as well as quality high street chains and of course many traditional pasty shops! There is something to suit every palate and budget. At night you can enjoy sophisticated wine bars, cocktail lounges and traditional pubs.
What makes Truro special is the shear diversity of its offer – from Cornish celebrity chefs creating top quality dishes using the finest local ingredients through to a punnet of chips or pasty on Lemon Quay to refuel during a day’s shopping. There are plenty of places for families to eat out and during the summer months a selection of Truro’s eateries can offer outside seating areas to relax in the sun. If you’re planning to catch a show at the Hall for Cornwall, many restaurants also offer pre-theatre menus.
Classic-contemporary Bar & Brasserie in Truro offers a relaxing haven for guests and visitors to enjoy a wide range of British favourites cooked expertly - and many with a unique Alverton twist! Overlooking the garden and terrace, the bars flooded with light during the day, whilst in the evening you can enjoy a more intimate dining experience enhanced by soft lamplight.
Breakfast of fruit, juices and cereals such as homemade granola, to the full works cooked to order including sumptuous Cornish sausages, smoked haddock and pancakes drizzled in maple syrup available in the bars. Grab Lunch in the Brasserie or a Light Bite in the bar, or why not sample famous Afternoon Tea with delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and scrumptious cakes.
