Barclays Bank

14 King St, Truro TR1 2RB, UK – 0345 734 5345

Banked here for years... Got fed up with queuing, now i bank elsewhere. Access for buggies is annoying. Even worse if u r disabled. Better banks are available. Not very competitive rates, for anything. No criticism of the staff.

Brilliant bank

The Co-op Bank

7 - 8 St Nicholas Street, Truro TR1 2RL, UK – 01872 273573

Friendly staff who know what they are talking about and you only have to interact with a machine if you want to. A breath of fresh air in the world of banking

Google street shows it as Britannia, but it is The Co-Operative Bank now, and it's blue!! Recently opened an account here, and very impressed with the service and quiet peaceful interior. The young manager is very helpful and personable...a pleasure to do business with.

Dental Surgeries

Pure Dental Health

Perenn House, City Rd, Truro TR1 2JL, UK – 01872 222404

This place deserves nothing less than 5 stars. If i could give more i would. I hated my teeth for 20+ years. I did shop around. Get some quotes etc. But Pure Dental won me from the get go. The minute i walked in i was made to feel very welcome. Every single person from the receptionists to the dental nurses are all amazing. Very attentive, carong and welcome. 15 months i had my braces on. My smile is now the biggest and brightest it has ever been. They have given me a new found confidence. Thank you Pure Dental xx

Last year I was told by the local NHS emergency Dentist that I needed a molar removed . I mentioned at the time I was contemplating an implant as a replacement and they were good enough to give me a temporary filling and tell me that the dentist who can do that work prefers to do the removal so as to be sure it's done correctly for the following work. I made an appointment with great ease through the cheerful and professional reception staff and met with the friendly consultant for forms to fill and sign and x rays to be checked. The time for the removal came around within days and I wasn't sure what to expect having spoken to others who had bad experiences with their dentists. Speaking to Mark put me at ease and can honestly say I didn't feel a thing, great respect for the man. After receiving a full explanation and a detailed report of the procedure and costing break down I went for the implant and very glad I did. A few months later I'm the proud owner of a new tooth thanks to his skill and professionalism. If I still have your attention I would also like take this opportunity to thank the hygiene team for their humour and skill against the odds. If you are contemplating this treatment or any other procedure I can not recommend this dental practice enough. All The Best Richard.

Lander Dentistry

3 Upper Lemon Villas, Lemon Street, Truro TR1 2PD, UK – 01872 272777

I had spent a lot of time researching and visiting dental practices in the search for someone that could give me the teeth I had always wanted. I was hugely impressed from my first consultation with Mark, he was very informative, professional and friendly. I left having full confidence he could give me the smile I wanted and I was right! I am so happy with my results, the day after my braces were taken off a complete stranger came up to me to compliment me on my teeth- this would never have happened before! I only wish I had found Lander sooner. Thank you very much.

I had been having problems with my gums bleeding and thanks to the hygienist Rachel at Lander Dentist my teeth have been saved. She recommended that I go and see a gum specialist to undergo some specialised treatment. The treatment was carried out successfully and now I regularly see Rachel at Lander Dentist to ensure I am cleaning them properly. I can highly recommend the team here at the dentist and remain truly grateful to Rachel for being so proactive and managing to save my teeth.

Lander Medical Practice

Truro Health Park, Infirmary Hill, Truro TR1 2JA, UK – 01872 243700

Everything is done under one roof and the doctors are nice even the reception staff are very friendly and helpful. Very clean and well cared for

Very nice looking place, and great patient system. I have moved quite a lot and seen and registered with various GP's but unfortunately despite how big the place is, it has been the worst for GP's. Wait is slow even when you are pretty much the first appointment, but the main problem was the GP just wasn't interested ... didn't notice any of my current medical history despite it being on the screen as I have access to it as well or really take note of anything at all .... maybe a bad day? or morning .... either way just got fobbed off to someone else. If other appointments are better will update.

Royal Cornwall Hospital

Treliske, Truro TR1 3LQ, UK – 01872 250000

My son who is a member of the armed forces had to undergo a planned operation on Wednesday 25th of April .we had travelled from Wales to be with him.From when he was seen and prepared for theatre on the Theatre direct suite to his admission to trauma 2 ward I could not fault any part of his care or treatment.He was kept fully informed of what would happen in regard to the operation and what be involved following this.We had a very slight hiccup with regard to his discharge , however this was treated in a quick and professional way the next day. I was aware the Royal Cornwall hospital was in special measures and was slightly apprehensive about this as I'm a nurse. Well all I can say is ,Royal Cornwall Hospital..stand proud as I couldn't fault your care of my son .

Recently admitted via my GP for a brain haemorrhage, I arrived in A&E and was seen to almost immediately. As you can imagine, a frightening experience; however the staff that attended to me had such a positive, good-humoured and professional manner. The haemorrhage promptly identified by a CAT scan, I was immediately informed I was to be transported to Derriford. The doctors sent over my scan images and details before I even left Truro, allowing the neurologists to be familiar with my situation on my arrival. Absolutely phenomenal communication and staff. Can not thank them enough.

I would like to congratulate and say thank you to both the refuse and recycling teams who collected where we live [off Porthpean Road] yesterday. Because of an early collection the majority of residents put out their collection overnight. In the middle of Wednesday night/Thursday morning the gusting of the wind blew the recycling and wheel bins over the footpaths and roads. After the collection of re-cycling and refuse nobody would have known that there had been any problems. Thank you to you all and a very Happy New Year

Lovely food. Great choice. Nicely presented. Good service. Trade your tesco vouchers in for 4 times the value. Winner

Really friendly and helpful staff. The lemonade is delicious and the food was just as tasty. The waitress recommended then pancetta and asparagus carbonara and it was amazing! Definitely didn't disappoint. I look forward to trying the pizza next time.

Yak & Yeti

10 Kenwyn St, Truro TR1 3DJ, UK – 01872 272363

Delicious food. Called in without a reservation and were fortunate to get the last table for four. The staff were very friendly, we were able to adapt meals (paneer instead of chicken), the menu choices were plentiful, the food came quickly and best of all, it tasted great! We look forward to coming back next time we're in Truro

A pleasant surprise! The staff were incredibly accommodating, despite being rushed off their feet with many other tables. The starters were delectable, and for the main I had a monkfish curry which was fresh and beautifully flavoured - the waiter even took the time to explain what spices were used to me. If you favour non greasy, interesting curries I'd highly recommend this place!

Bustopher Jones

62 Lemon St, Truro TR1 2PN, UK – 01872 430000

This is a great place if you are looking for a relaxed upscale experience. There is a very large selection of cocktails however draft ales & larger are limited to only four. Service is very high standard which is appealing. There is plenty of seating divided into an area for causal drinks as you walk in and dinning to the left and rear of the establishment. The food is decent. Overall the place isn’t cheap however worth a visit

I had the cucumber cooler cocktail expertly made for me, it was amazing! I ordered vegan versions of the eggplant and charred broccoli salads along with the veggie tempura... All was absolutely delicious perfection. Service was absolutely brilliant. Dishes were explained well for us with smooth service. The only reason I knocked one star off was because there was a plastic straw in my cocktail. C'mon Bustopher Jones, please join in the fight, please say no to plastic straws my friends😍

My daughter has been at Highertown preschool for 2 years, and has thoroughly enjoyed it. what has been a real asset to me howver, is the closeness to my place of work at Treliske Hospital. Unlike some other preschools they have been flexible with regard to her hours. The setting is very pleasant, in nice grounds, and with easy parking nearby. I would highly recommend it

This is a little gem of a pre-school . The staff ratio is fantastic and they offer the most wonderful care and attention on an individual basis. Nothing is too mush trouble for them . My child has had a great time at this pre-school , I wouldnt want my children to have gone any where else. I thoroughly recommend you give this setting a go.

Polwhele House

Truro TR4 9AE, UK – 01872 273011

My son is a year 8 chorister at Polwhele House, a prep and pre-prep school near Truro in Cornwall. He has had an amazing experience so far. Academically he is excelling with all the extra help and pastoral support available from the highly experienced and inspiring teachers. The music education he has is first rate both at school and of course at Truro Cathedral. The vast range of opportunties he has been given during his time at the school have enabled him to excel, even qualifying and competing in sporting activities both at county and national levels. Polwhele House preparatory school really has given him the best start we could ever have hoped for and he has made some wonderful friends - as have we! It really is a fabulous school.
