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 had a steak in 29/12/2020 and it was fantastic, however we had one 04/12/2021 expecting the same great taste but was VERY disappointed. Don’t know if you’ve changed your chef but I highly recommend they sort the flavours out. One steak tasted of nothing at all and the other had too much pepper on it. We were just excited to experience great food but unfortunately didn’t get that experience. For £29 per steak we expected better taste.

    The quality of the food and the service was excellent. The only downside is that noise levels were almost unacceptably high - we could hardly her each other speak! The acoustics definitely require attention!

    We nearly left as the menu didn’t have many options. The chilli chicken noodles was changed to fish like on the old menu & this was great. More vegetarian options would be good. The waitress didn’t have much if any knowledge on the menus details we sent her into the kitchen twice to answer questions on the menu content The chocolate pudding wasn’t chocolatey enough! Wouldn’t have it again. More pudding choices please

    The food was nice but expensive for what it was, some of our dishes were missing and then took a while to come, we were rushed to order and told we had to split the table up into seperate tabs before we ordered, the whole process was not relaxing considering the money spent. The cocktails though nice were only a couple of sips for £9.50 more of a shot!

    Prices & portions have rocketed. We missed the old lunch menu with omelettes etc. The portions were huge and we had to leave much of it. You need a better lunch menu with less expensive and smaller options.

    The Bento Box is excellent, my husband had the meat and I had the fish. We both agreed that, although we realise this is an Asian dish, the rice goes cold and very clumped very quickly. Some form of potato might be better, can you do an Asian potatas bravas? Or a tiny bowl of noodles with a little sauce? The value of the food is very good, but £12.50 for a large glass of sauvignon blanc is pretty outrageous. Everything else was lovely.

    Service was excellent as usual. Menu has gone downhill unfortunately, more like posh pub grub then the high standard restaurant food they used to serve. There were no healthy option on evening menu. Even the chicken salad on the lunch menu is deep fried in breadcrumbs. There used to always be a non-battered fish option. I sadly won’t book here again.

    Great service, staff couldn't do enough for us. The food was lovely, slightly too big portions but that's a personal thing. I had the tomato and avocado salad. Great but the tomatoes would have been even better if served at room temperature.

Portions were large we couldn't eat it all, the food was so flavoursome, everything left you feeling wow that was gorgeous. Honestly, this place is amazing, we will be back!

    Once again a very enjoyable evening. I selected sizzling beef for my main course, sadly the beef was very tough, the rest of the dish was tasty, however, the waitress asked me if I would like another one or something different, I asked for a chicken Tempura which never disappoints, thank you. Delicious puddings and first class service, hope to see you again soon
