    Very cold in restaurant all evening Food was amazing apart from cheese board .Chutney just plonked on dish and butter just looked like it had been thrown on Waitress knocked glass of wine over snapping stem off. She was very apologetic and horrified. It was an accident. Friend was given new glass of wine. I wasn’t offered anything apart from some tissue to dry from trousers which were soaking

    I took my partner for his 30th birthday before we went to the theatre. The food and service was amazing, great portion size for the price and was so tasty. The only only thing I would say is the music was a bit loud and not music I would have on for the ambience of the place. Overall it was a great evening meal.

    Lovely restaurant, food good but not excellent as expected. The worst part of the evening was tables being positioned so close together, felt like I was sitting on the lap of the person next to me..spoilt all conversation and ambience….On top of that the family from hell were positioned in the larger room. I refused to be seated next to them and some diners left before ordering…horrendous, like being in a zoo

    Lovely place and menu - just a little expensive eg £45 for the cheapest red wine which as we know is quite a mark up … Varied and different menu and fabulous service ….

    Not been to Manning for 25 years, had really good memories of our very first visit and following a trip to the theatre we thought we would have a night out at Manning's, the food I think is over priced, the quality is of a reasonably good standard and the service was excellent but i think the value for money is borderline, the chef if clearly very good at presentation but I don't think he or she has been unchained as much as they could be with choice and flair which I am sure is clearly there, overall we had a good evening, we did not leave disappointed however I mentioned over priced unfortunately for the quality received.

    Disappointed with choice of food for lunch. Portions substantial and good quality ingredients but the meal I ordered didn't really work in my opinion. The Asian Fish Tiffin box consisted of a good portion of dry steamed rice and poppadoms but no sauce unfortunately. The salmon, prawns and a very small portion of salad was tasty as were the 2 very large fish goujons and tartare sauce, but the whole meal was rather dry.

    Food was lovely, every thing went well till we wanted to pay. Our waitress ignored us and cleaned tables either side of us. Another waitress ordered a taxi for 8 people opposite, the manager/ man with a beard shook the mens hands as the left at 10ish, but still no one could see us, even when we said excuse me or pardon as staff went by. We waited 40 mins to pay, having had a lovely evening we paid our bill plus 7.5% added. We normally add 10% or 15% and decided to retreat to the Longstore. Clearly going for the overnight business crowd or regulars.

    This was our first visit in a long time, and unfortunately our food was under cooked so we didn’t eat it, the chef did take it off the bill which was kind but it still means we were disappointed. Also a glass of Sauvignon at £14.50 is extortionate!

    Disappointing Food just did not appeal, there was nothing really wrong and one could say it was fine but at the end of the meal one could not have said --that was really great Menu not particularly inspiring, steaks and several Thai based items .Not sure how Chicken Supreme from the grill works . Great service Overpriced food and wine There are PLENTY of other better places to eat in Truro

    Not our first time at the city-centre restaurant that has never failed to deliver in terms of service and quality of food; Not that we were there for a pre-theatre- dinner, the re-opening of the Hall for Cornwall however makes this an ideal venue for such occasions. We will be returning.....soon :)

    We have visited Mannings Restaurant many times before but this was the first time since the Covid emergency has eased, and everything was as it used to be, very attentive staff and a good selection to choose from, yes the prices are more than they used to be before the pandemic, but then so is everything today, it's not just Mannings! We had a very enjoyable meal. The only thing I would say is the Gents toilet is limited to the disabled toilet, my wife says the Ladies toilet has 3 or 4 cubicles, whereas the Gents toilet is essentially just one at a time, for anyone a bit desperate this could be a problem!

    We have always gone to Mannings, especially if we are going to see a show at the Hall for Cornwall, but we were quite disappointed with the current menu. There is not the variety of food that there always used to be.

    Always good service & food at Mannings. One of the best places to eat in Truro. They had an excellent special menu on where the proceeds were being sent to support the Ukrainian's in their current plight which we were only too happy to support too. What a thoughtful gesture on the part of Mannings management & staff.

    I have dined at Mannings for many years and have always rated it 5* But unfortunately my last visit here was disappointing. It was my Daughters 16th birthday meal so I wanted it to be perfect, the food was average and we waisted most of it and the staff forgot to bring her birthday cake out that I had brought in previously for them to surprise her with, we ended up taking it home. However the staff were pleasant and did offer us a free drink for the mix up but I don’t think it will be our first choice when booking a restaurant again unfortunately.

    We have eaten here many times as it is the perfect pre theatre venue. The staff are friendly and polite , the service excellent, always very efficient. The food is very good, piping hot and nicely presented. Cleanliness in the restaurant and washrooms very good. Mannings is one of our favourite places to eat.

    A good welcome and seating plan very good. Food excellent but perhaps more choice would be nice. Puddings a delight but at £9.00 each probably wouldn’t indulge every time we paid a visit. Staff great.

    Hurried throughout the evening by the Manager. Spoilt our night. He was more interested in cashing up and shutting up shop. The waitresses were nice but whole evening just a rush job. We had ordered, been given and eaten starter and main in 40 mins. Then they wanted our desert order within 5 mins or we would have to forego (we did!) Would not recommend. Totally soulless place too- no atmosphere-soulless.
