First visit in 30 years - changed a little but still good food - strange but they ran out of steak in a Friday night.

£15 for a set lunch menu (£5 surcharge for steak) is a decent price for food at this place. Lots of choice. Lovely setting. Great gins.

Cape Cod meets Cornwall is how we'd describe this city centre Cornish bistro which is renowned for its progressive and seasonal modern British menu. Decorated in stylish rustic colours with minimalistic hardwood furniture, a zinc-topped bar and a glass-roofed atrium, Bustopher's Bar Bistro is a cosy family-run venue that is a hit with both Truro locals and visiting gourmands alike. The kitchen specialises in creating bold dishes from Cornish produce and simple British traditions, and the wine list here is excellent. Popular dishes include the seared tuna steak with a warm side of sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes and spinach with sauce vierge; the bowl of River Fal mussels; and the pork belly with seasonal vegetables.
