Mannings // Truro

Chic Mannings is an elegant restaurant, bar and hotel in the centre of Truro. The food is modern British and Mediterranean, with a focus on seasonal ingredients. 

Close to the Hall for Cornwall, Mannings is an excellent place for pre-theatre dinner or drinks (take a look at their cocktail menu). Just make sure that you book well in advance. It's also a popular place for a coffee in the morning - although if you want to sample their breakfast, you'll need to be a resident.

Mannings has 30 en-suite guest rooms and nine open-plan apartments. Yes, the building is bigger than it looks from the street, stretching back into a pretty courtyard, where the old stable block has been converted.
