It's been years since we last dined at Tabbs - WHY?? The restaurant is a bit tucked away and parking can be tricky but inside it is a delight. The decor is tasteful and the tables large enough so that there isn't a constant game of chess to accommodate everything. They are also spaced nicely so that you are not... More

Dined here recently with friends and found the whole experience very good. Professional, friendly and attentive host with high standards of fine dining. Prices are reasonable for standard with very good wine selection. The restaurant itself has a good ambience with good sized tables well spaced for private conversation.

Thank you for an excellent Victorian breakfast last week and an equally good Sunday roast today. You are certainly the outstanding chef in Truro. We look forward to our next meal with you. The balance of flavours in the food here is so good and there is an excellent wine list from which you can always find something to match... More

Our first time at this restaurant, but with friends who had been here on several occasions before. They are keen foodies who wanted to take us somewhere special, and it certainly hit the mark and beat our expectations. Walking through the front door we were surprised at the lovely interior and a very nice ambience. We were made very welcome... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends of ours. We had the most delicious meal, the Hake and the Duck were beautifully cooked. A small hot soup was served as an amuse Bouche and this too was excellent. The restaurant was very quiet when we were there which we appreciated and the staff were very friendly and accommodating We... More

My husband and I visited Tabbs this evening as a last minute treat and boy what a treat it was! The restaurant was beautifully decorated and after a warm welcome we were shown to the delightful lounge area where we could have a drink and peruse the menus. The wine list gave a wealth of choices, not only by the... More

Excellent food and service! Lovely extra was a mushroom and truffle oil soup which was given free of charge while we waited for starter. Will definitely revisit.

We had the good fortune to choose Tabb's restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner last week. There was a varied 2 or 3 course set menu to choose from. We sampled the Duck on toast followed by fillet of hake accompanied by perfectly cooked vegetables. The standard of cooking is very high and the front of house service was efficient and... More
