Vibrant Penrose Kitchen, hidden gem in Truro
The weather may be chilly at the moment but you can be sure of a great cup of Owens coffee and a warm welcome from the team at Penrose Kitchen, a vibrant new restaurant in Shortlanesend, Truro in Cornwall.
It is a fabulous venue all year round, with superb outdoor seating, and surrounded by tranquil lily ponds. However, this time of year is our favourite – with cosy, snuggly sofas and a log burner. Perfect for families or mums to meet up during the day with lots of space for prams, push chairs and a play area too (Cornish weather dependent). The kids menu is amazing value at only £6 for a hot meal, or sandwiches and crisps, followed by a scoop of ice cream or some jelly. Perfect for a romantic evening meal for two, perfect for a wedding or party! It is a lovely spot for everyone, wrapped up in a super friendly atmosphere.
All the food served is local, seasonal, quality and fresh, owners Ben and Sam are truly passionate about this. The kitchen is open daily Tuesday – Sunday, and is then transformed into a relaxed, fully licensed bistro for dinner every Friday and Saturday. The menu is constantly evolving, and all food is cooked to order. Try the Sunday lunch; they serve Yorkshire puddings with every one!
Penrose Kitchen are members of Taste of the West, as are Owens. Taste of the West is a unique membership organisation for food and drink producers, distributors, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, farm shops and speciality retailers in the South West – all passionate about the provenance and quality of the products they make, serve or sell.
