    Feed serves fabulous street food and excellent coffee from its small unit in the Old Foundry Chapel in the middle of town. There's usually a queue (this place is loved), but it's always worth the wait.

  • The Rising Sun / Truro

    This welcoming little place on Mitchell Hill is both a dining pub and a good spot for a drink or two. It's such a cosy and inviting place, that it's hard to believe that the 200 year old building was a deserted shell until just a few years ago when Tom and Katie took it on.

    Today, the Truro pub serves modern British food, specialising in local ingredients. Tuck into hearty dishes like loin of beef or pan-fried pigeon, or look out for the special catch of the day, typically served with...
