The City has always been Truro'sbest real ale pub.It has certainly improved recently after going through a difficult time.Alway Betty Stog,Courage and Doom bar usually plus a guest.The beer is always top quality.There is now good pub grub and a Sunday carvery and occasional music sessions.
Well worth a visit if you want a decent pint in a traditional pub.

Excellent pub, friendly staff and good beer. My favourite during my brief stay in Truro.

A couple of pints of Skinner's Cornish Knocker and a delicious homemade burger and chips was very much enjoyed, 8/10

Our husbands decided to abandon us to seek out the City Inn for a 'swift half' while we continued shopping - they reappeared two and a half hours later full of praise for the pub. We therefore went for lunch two days later, the food on offer was excellent, beuatifully cooked and of a high quality, we drank wine which was OK but the men got to grips with the local Skinners brew and the more they drank the more fulsome their praise. We will be back next September for more! The City Inn isn't easy to find, the paper in our hotel said it is 150 yards from the shopping centre but it is probably a bit more and is tucked away under the railway viaduct.

Stopped off in Truro on the way back from the Eden Project (AKA Kew Gardens Writ Large) to give the two GBG pubs a try. This was my second of the two after the Wetherspoons (had to work my way up for the hill ascent) and I have to say this place really was a crushing disappointment.

The pub is split into two areas, a nice area set out with ostentatious dining tables and all I can describe as a dark, grotty area for the drinkers away from a small bar area where all the locals were crushed into. The gents were also pretty rancid, what are those brown streaks running down the wall by the sink about?

There were three ales on - Sharps, Courage Best and Skinners Betty Stoggs. I opted for the Betty Stoggs and got a pretty insipid beer for my trouble. Perhaps I should have tried another of the beers to see if was just unlucky given the dislike of the place itself I didn't feel any desire to stay on so left.

GBG or not, I'd struggle to summon up any recommendation really.
