We tried Truro pub’s no electricity night with cheese and candlelight

Gastro-pub The Thomas Daniell organised a ‘cheese and wine night by candlelight’ evening as a response to the energy crisis

There are some people who manage to create beautiful moments out of hardship. Among them is the Thomas Daniell team in Truro, who decided to limit the impact of the energy crisis by organising a “cheese and wine night by candlelight” evening.

Picture this – a pub plunged in the darkness, dimly lit by the flickering flames of a few dozen candles. Sat at your table, you are facing a huge charcuterie or cheese board and hear in the background the sound of wine glasses clinking, the discreet chatter from neighbouring tables and an acoustic singer performing next to the bar. The perfect autumn evening.

This electricity-free evening took place on Tuesday (October 4). A friend – a fellow cheese lover – and I decided we just couldn’t miss it. The first impression after we pushed the main door of the Thomas Daniell was pretty magical.

The atmosphere was cosy and inviting and the candles dotted around the pub made it an intimate setting.
