Foodie thrills in Truro

Tucked away at the top of a winding drive and surrounded by verdant mature gardens, The Alverton is a surprising foodie find in Cornwall’s capital city.

Ensconced on the sunny terrace with an exquisite cocktail to hand (try the own-infused rosemary and orange gin), you’d never believe you were just a ten-minute stroll from the bustle of the streets below. Consequently, the luxuriously refurbished bedrooms and suites make the Grade II-listed former convent a fantastic base from which to explore Truro and beyond.

Elegant yet unpretentious cooking comes courtesy of a team overseen by exec chef Nick Hodges. The intriguing menu features the best of both land and sea, with Nick’s pick of the Cornish dayboats sitting next to pasture-reared beef and locally shot game.

Take a leaf out of the locals’ book and order the Cornish seafood grill of monkfish, prawns, haddock, salt and pepper squid, garlic aioli, salad and chips.

Trencherman’s tip: for a coastal take on The Alverton experience, swing by its sister hotel The Greenbank in Falmouth.
