Visiting Truro for just one day and excited to try some new foods in a new setting and were not disappointed. We had a mix of starters then we all had the bunny chow for the main course and would highly recommend. The waiting staff...were very friendly and helpful and offered lots of advice on a menu we were not used to.More

Staff were amazing, food not so good, I had a smothered chicken dish as my main and it was that dry I couldn’t cut it even though I tried very hard, the waitress came and asked if all was good and I told her that...I couldn’t cut my chicken as it was far to overcooked/ dry but she said oh ok and left us, then came back and took the plate away at the end of the meal still almost complete, sadly very dissatisfied, won’t go backMore

We’ve never eaten at a South African place before but fancied something different so decided to give it a go! Everything was so yummy 😋 We particularly loved the corn fritters (I won’t be sharing a portion next time like we did this!), ribs and...chicken also great. Reasonable prices for good quality food… our only disappointment was that we had to go so didn’t have time for pudding! Really friendly, helpful staff. We’ll def be back.More

Been meaning to try Chorley’s for ages and finally went this week. The manager was friendly and knowledgable about his food and made us feel welcome. The chicken wings starter with hot BBQ sauce was great, as was the sweetcorn and chilli fritters. For main...course I had the ribs which were melt in mouth delicious. My wife and son both had the smothered chicken and loved it. All in all it was a great meal and we left feeling full! Definitely be going back soon, highly recommended.More

Apart from rice and potatoes, I never saw anything marked as gluten-free. I also never laid sight on any ribs anywhere !
