The Barley Sheaf
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Barley Sheaf is tucked away behind Truro’s cathedral and nestled by the babbling River Allen – a somewhat hidden treasure that is worth locating. As well as fantastic food and drink, the recently refurbished inn offers guest bedrooms and is perfect for a relaxed weekend getaway. Starting with complimentary crusty bread and homemade whipped garlic butter, our initial hunger was satiated, but starters of perfectly grilled halloumi skewers and tempura-battered fresh cod bites were well received. In keeping with The Barley Sheaf’s history as one of the ﬁrst pubs in Truro, the chef exceeded expectations with classics such as mushroom risotto, and sirloin steak with a Port and Stilton sauce. To conclude our impressive meal, we shared the delectable crème brûlée with buttery shortbread. From start to ﬁnish, including beer at the well-stocked bar, ﬂavoursome food and its blissful location overlooking the river, our dining experience at The Barley Sheaf was simply delightful.
