Gravy Boesti is situated adjacent to the County Courts on Edward Street, a short walk from the centre of the busy Cathedral City of Truro.

As the main administrative and commercial centre in Cornwall, Truro has seen significant commercial and retail investment in recent years making it a thriving and vibrant city. The continuing residential development in and around the city, together with plans for a new stadium and expansive development just to the west, mean the area will see increased growth, certainly for the foreseeable future.

The original property has been extended to the rear to form the principal dining area, with a theatre style kitchen and 28 covers. A large skylight and wide opening glass doors to the rear make the dining area feel light and spacious.

The business occupies a traditional two-storey period cottage; a facade that belies the contemporary and high quality interior. The original property has been extended to the rear to form the principal dining area, with a theatre style kitchen and 28 covers.

To the rear is an attractive terrace garden providing a further 16 covers. On the first floor is an office, utility room, preparation room and staff WC.
