The Longstore, Truro

The Longstore in Truro is the sister restaurant to The Longstore in Charlestown, St Austell which has received consistently good reviews since opening in 2016. Based on the historic Lemon Street in a refurbished three-story Georgian townhouse, Truro’s Longstore is a charismatic gem with an impressive selection of grills, meat, seafood and cocktails.

Inside, the large rooms are decorated with thoughtful lighting, soft seating, salmon pink walls, and sage trim, studded with brass fixtures and gold-framed artwork. Touches of velvet, leather, and leafy plants populate each level and glittering handmade oyster chandeliers hang from the glass atrium. 

The vibe is attentive yet relaxed, friendly, welcoming, and buzzing. Their plentiful plates and bountiful pours will thrill your tongue while the setting and service will complete the experience. 

Enjoy a unique blend of stylish city dining with a warm and welcoming Cornish vibe. Whether it’s an express lunch with friends or colleagues, after-work cocktails, or a long and leisurely 3-course dinner. Their focus is on quality, freshness, and sustainability and they have relationships with local farmers, fishmongers, bakers, and food purveyors who share similar values.

The Longstore also boasts a handsome Saturday brunch and Sunday lunch menu, alongside their selection of hand-picked wines, local beers, and spirits, so you don’t have to wait for the evening to enjoy their offerings.

From their menu expect items such as butcher’s cut steak with roasted garlic, onion puree, crispy shallots and house basting sauce, whole roasted plaice with tartare butter, crispy capers, lemon and samphire, and roasted confit duck leg with sweet and sour cherries, red wine jus and braised hispi cabbage.
