A truly tranquil spot for laid-back luxury in the city. Expect food that is a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds, and top notch tipples served with a smile. Food is served daily from midday until 9pm.
Sip expertly mixed cocktails on the terrace, indulge in our bottomless gin brunches, or tuck into a proper Cornish cream tea. For a little slice of country living in the city, The Alverton bar is the place to be.
Savour classic cuisine prepared using the finest local ingredients foraged, fished and farmed. Our two AA rosette award-winning restaurant overlooks our luscious lawns, suntrap terrace and ancient trees.
Enjoy our award-winning breakfast including the full works, smoked haddock, or pancakes drizzled in maple syrup. During the day, grab lunch in the restaurant or sharing plates in the bar, or sample our famous afternoon tea with delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones and scrumptious cakes. On Sunday, tuck into a traditional roast for all the family.
In the evening, indulge in seasonal dishes from Executive Chef Nick Hodges and his brigade. Choose from our sweeping wine wall, head to the bar and sip lip-smackingly good cocktails, or a rich espresso and homemade petit fours by the fire.
"The long bar and gallery-like restaurant overlook a wide terrace; in summer, the huge patio doors swing open to a sunny aspect overlooking the grassy slopes. The food is justifiably AA double rosette starred. With impeccable service, each dish is a delight."
"It's a stylish hotel with a well-regarded restaurant which is elegant, sophisticated and colourful."
Tom Chesshyre, The Times
"The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious. Exceptional staff in the bar and restaurant put everyone at their ease."
"Once a convent for The Order of the Epiphany, today The Alverton is a sanctuary for those who worship at the altar of local produce and contemporary cooking. We liked sauntering across The Courtyard to dinner at the smart-yet-relaxed restaurant. Forget heading into town to find a table at one of Truro’s eateries; these pleasingly seasonal dishes are some of the best for miles."
"Minus the food, perhaps my favourite thing about the restaurant was the relaxed atmosphere. Based on the luxuriousness of our room, one could easily assume and expect a grand dining experience, but instead, an intimate dining experience enhanced by soft lighting welcomed us."
"The chef’s signature is beef cooked three ways and it is melt-in-the-mouth delicious, especially when washed down with a bottle of red. The seafood is (of course) excellent and fresh, and the atmosphere is lively."
"Lovely bar, opening onto the terrace, where experienced staff give practised advice on wines. Food at the brasserie - comfortable, low-lit and relaxed - is generous both in its portions and flavours."
