A great location at the top of the hill with outside seating.
The service was polite and attentive with a good choice of menu and a specials board.
Part of our meal was not that hot, the staff were really quick to respond and were very apologetic, a new meal was cooked and this was very tasty.

This is a great find in Truro. A pub with friendly, young and competent staff and a good range of drinks and cocktails.
We visit Truro frequently (Mother-in-law lives in the town), and we stay in a few places when doing so. On this occasion we were staying at Merchant House on Falmouth Road, and the Thomas Daniell proved to be the ideal place to pop in for drink or three when making the ascent from the town centre up Lemon Street.
The pub is located on the junction of Daniell Street and Infirmary Hill and opposite the large monument to Richard Lander (the 19th century Truro born explorer who was the son of the innkeeper of the Fighting Cocks {now the Dolphin Inn} ).
We visited the pub several times during our stay in Truro but it was only for a drink as we had eaten elsewhere with Mother-in-Law. As such we cant comment on the food, although it did seem that other customers looked content with their plates of food. We will have to give it a go next time.

We dined three times in this lovely restaurant which also looks very attractive from the outside.
Each time we were impressed. We loved the food and drinks; you get good quality and quantity for your money. Is is all so honest and light. I had for instance an excellent preparation of chicken and risotto...
The service is excellent. We did not have to wait long and the staff is super friendly.
The place is a bit boisterous but we love it because it is sparkling with this young, fresh and kind touch brought along also by the original decoration, the staff and the youngsters eating there or having a drink.
We are seniors but we love this kind of places run by young people making efforts to do a good job with pleasure and offering very good products!

Went for Sunday lunch with elderly parents as we had been given gift vouchers for Christmas. The Sunday menu is different to the rest of the week, probably not as much choice but can’t fault the quality of the food. Everything we had was beautifully cooked and generous portion size too. 2 starters, 4 mains, 4 desserts, 4 pints of Estrella, 2 pints of Lushingtons, 500ml carafe of Rose wine and large jug of iced water came to £131 but with £100 in gift vouchers it was a very cheap afternoon out. Service was very good and our young waitress was very attentive and professional. Will definitely return
