Review on Tabb's Restaurant

Following a move from rustic Portreath to a converted pub in the centre of Truro, Tabb's has lost none of its allure as a consistent local restaurant with that personal touch. Despite the sad loss of Melanie Tabb in 2008, Nigel is soldiering on.....

The cooking seems set to continue on its well-tried path, offering an exciting mix of modern British ideas with a few add-ons from the Mediterranean. Soups are a strong point (perhaps parsnip with toasted sesame oil or green lentil with roast onions, chilli oil and cumin) and it's highly unlikely that Nigel will discard his signature dish of pan-fried hog's pudding served with mustard and grain mustard cream and a Parmesan salad.

Other options could include red mullet with squid-ink tagliatelle and a delicate cream of snow peas and mint, while Tabb's near-legendary desserts continue to receive rave reviews. Also don't miss Nigel's renowned hand-made chocolate and truffles to round things off.
