Spires at Truro

Spires Restaurant at Truro College offers fine dining at truly remarkable prices. From our newly designed, purpose-built kitchens, we serve exquisite dishes using mindfully sourced, local ingredients from Cornwall and the South West. And the most surprising thing? It’s run entirely by our Professional Cookery and Professional Food and Beverage students, who gain valuable experience whilst working towards their qualifications. Spires has been classified as highly recommended and awarded the AA College Rosette, proving the hard work of the students and staff shines through in their service and learning environment.

Spires Restaurant is located in the Allen Building of Truro College with its own dedicated car park. We’re open for bookings from 12 to 1.15pm, Monday to Friday, and on Tuesday evenings from 6.00pm to 7.30pm. (Term time only)

Additionally, Spires can cater for functions of up to 50 people, making it a great choice for lunches or large celebrations. We also host Christmas Party evenings, and special themed evenings throughout the year, as well as ever-popular Jazz Evenings. If you'd like to privately hire Spires for your function, in which we cater to your needs, please get in touch and we will do our best to suit your requirements. The restaurant is fully licensed and serves a selection of fine wines, craft beers, spirits and soft drinks.
