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…

    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 service was great. Menu was a little disappointing, not much choice. The meals were lovely though but a little big. Desert choice was good though but again, a little big. Prices had increased since last year.

    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

    Our meal at Manning's was very good. We had the special Fisherman's Friends pre show menu which had a reasonable choice of three dishes in each of three courses. Timing was done to ensure you got to the theatre in time, theatre is was literally only across the road. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and polite.

    Had the pre-theatre menu which was very nicely presented and tasty. Although it was a limited menu there was a fair choice. Service was attentive and very friendly. One minor observation regarding the noise as that it was a bit echoey making it appear loud at times but it was busy. Might not be possible to change without amending the decor to incorporate some sound absorbing material. Otherwise a lovely meal and will definitely go back.
