Mannings is a place for friendship, great food and cosmopolitan cocktails that leave you shaken and stirred! Whether it’s pre-show cocktails before a night at the theatre, dinner with friends, a light bite whilst shopping in Truro or a stolen glance between two before retreating to your apartment.

Mannings is about relaxed dining with a personal touch, modern classics in an informal setting and generous portions, we don’t do things by halves! For street-side glamour and authentic cuisine, succulent steaks paired with rich merlots… it’s all about simply delicious food, cooked to perfection.

So order a bottle of crisp, chilled Sancerre, a delicious Bento Box and watch the world go by…

We were warmly welcomed. It was my daughters birthday so we brought a cake which the lovely waitress brought out with lit candles after our meal. The whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday! So lovely. Our food didn’t take long to arrive and it was delicious. And we had some nice fruity mocktails. Overall the whole lunch went really well and the staff were very efficient and friendly.

A nice well ventilated restaurant with pleasant ambience. Portions of nicely presented food are from a menu that gives choice without overwhelming. The wine list is restricted but we'll chosen. Mannings proved a good choice for a spontaneous midweek supper

We had a nice time celebrating our wedding anniversary. Service excellent. Creative menu.
Only criticism was that it was uncomfortably hot in the restaurant.

One stater was delicious, lovely flavour balance, but a little light on the cauliflower considering that was the main item. The other was mediocre, with the bao bun sticky rather than light. One main (Thali) was tasty but each item was offputtingly large. The other might as well have been Chinese takeaway. Not horrible, but not high end as priced.

Mannings has always been our favourite restaurant in Truro, disappointed this time around, the menu is nowhere near as good as it was (very few of the old classics!! Portion sizes have most definitely got smaller & prices have gone up!!
Adding a 7.5% service charge was a little cheeky as well without telling us, we have always tipped over the years but doing it in this manner did not sit well!!

Mannings is Amazing.
The food and menu is brilliant. Such a range of choice and flavours. I love the different cuisines and the Korean/ Thai influences.
Can’t recommend Mannings enough to anyone visiting Truro or locals.
The service is top notch and the cocktails are very moorish!
Always a good night and meal.

If I’m really honest, I was very underwhelmed. Having not been out for a meal in a long time we were very excited. The restaurant had no ambiance - one plate food was served cold/warm not hot (the other was a sizzler so hot and lovely would reccommend this) were left waiting for extra drinks, once we had finished eating the plates sat in front of us for 30 minutes until we requested the bill - at which point they remained on the table until we finished our drinks and left. The staff were lovely but not exactly tentative - overall food was disappointing for the cost.

Mannings back to it's best. Great to see it open again and a couple of familiar faces. Food was reassuringly good, ambience was great.
My only complaint was the dining experience was a too rushed. Our food arrived before we'd finished our aperitive drinks and the mains arrived 5 minutes later. The whole dining experience was over in 40 minutes!
It wouldn't stop us from coming back as we love Mannings and have been regulars there for years now.

Was a very good experience but not amazing like it used to be for previous visits. The tapas style menu is great as an option but would’ve much preferred traditional set menu/meals
