I have been dining here on a regular basis and never leave disappointed. The pizzas are tasty and and the new homecut french fries are a great addition to the menu. Breakfasts on the weekend are a favourite to many regulars. Staff is always friendly and I would suggest this place to anyone.

One of the few options that Truro has to offer for a night out. Fun with a group of friends on Friday or Saturday or for dinner any day of the week.

Had the two 12" pizza for 15.95 on Sunday evening. As there was only 3 of us the waitress made sure we understood that what we didn't eat we couldn't take home. We ordered the works with no green peppers. Thick crust, just average sauce and lots of meat but hard to find the bacon or any onions. The second... More

This is definitely a local pub atmosphere. We came here for lunch and had several appetizers, pizzas, vegetable soup and club sandwich. Everything tasted very good but was a bit slow to come out. The menu has a lot of variety and portion size was good. There are several good lunch spots in Truro that we tried while visiting and... More

Ended up here on a Wednesday night at 7pm when Murray the fish and chip restaurant we'd seen in the guidebooks was shut. It was the only place we could find still open which was a bit of a culture shock on our first day. Staff were very friendly and the selection was good. Food and house wine were very... More

Great lunch specials but service is a bit slow when it's busy. Rustic pub atmosphere. Good selection of beers although we never had any.

Lots of variety in the menu. Consistently good. Family friendly and very reasonable prices. Good sized servings, and not a long wait for food.

Visited on August 12th, 2016, we were staying in Truro for a few days as we are attending a wedding in Halifax today. We were looking for some Pub Food, this place was recommended, I ordered the Seafood Chowder, not much seafood in it, too many potatoes and this made it very thick, not to my liking, my husband ordered...
