Part of the Whitbread family, Table Table restaurants aim to bring great value tasty pub food to an ever increasing eating-out public who like well prepared and genuine food served by friendly staff in relaxing surroundings. If that sounds too much like a dream come true be assured that at Table Table they also walk the talk, and are pleased to have the chance to prove it.
Their well located restaurants are spread across a wide range of decors and styles, and all of them share a determination to provide comfort, warmth and relaxation. Their buffet menus for special occasions are remarkable value
In keeping with modern trends they provide dishes to nibble or share as guests consider the spread of options on a menu that could be described as British with welcome incursions. So as you share long Italian flatbread, and dough balls and dips, or a sharing platter with an imaginative range of finger food starting with garlic and breaded mushrooms, it's time to think about the relative merits of aromatic duck parcels, a prawn cocktail, breaded Camembert or sticky chicken goujons to name but a few.
Many an innocent dish from the past has been hi-jacked in the best possible sense into becoming what is now called a 'pub classic'. Wiltshire cured ham with eggs is served with chunky chips and beef, mushroom and ale pie, or chicken and chips are all familiar with British tables, be they in the dining room or the kitchen. Now they have been added to by chicken fajitas, a sweet red pepper, crème fraiche and fennel tart, a leg of duck slowly cooked and served with a Bramley apple and cider sauce, or chilli con carne with basmati rice, sour cream and guacamole and nachos. So is the humble burger with six enticing toppings.
The point is they, and others, are all here at Table Table, well prepared with quality ingredients, and presented in a way that makes you hungry even if you thought you weren't.
Getting down to the more serious side of the table keep an eye open for the seafood pie, a delightful assembly of things fishy including crayfish, red snapper, prawns and clams. Many of their steaks are 28 days matured, including a 7oz fillet. All steaks are served with watercress, roasted cherry tomatoes, a flat mushroom and chunky chips. A choice from 4 sauces adds the final touch of enjoyment.
Pastas and salads embrace some well known and loved names, but for sheer enjoyment the hot smoked salmon salad takes some beating - flakes of hot smoked salmon mixed with a house salad and soy and ginger sauce. A real winner.
Snacks aplenty cover hot baguettes with the like of grilled pork loin and Bramley apple sauce, sandwiches filled with Cheddar cheese, or prawns and Marie Rose sauce, and jacket potatoes with such temptations as chilli con carne. Add a bowl of chips for only a little extra.
A well travelled wine list offers helpful advice for the uninitiated and there's an impressive choice of draught and bottled beers and lagers. All in all it would appear that Table Table are more than achieving their aims, providing the opportunity for people to eat out enjoyably, with excellent value for money. Long may they continue to do so.

Fore Street, Probus, nr Truro, TR2 4JL [Map]
The Lamplighter Restaurant brings delicious seafood and other dishes prepared from locally sourced produce at this 300 year old location, right in the middle of Probus, Truro. This family run restaurant is a charming and elegant dining destination where you can gather with friends or family for a lovely evening spent in delightful conversation and the promise of a fabulous dinner. The 2 AA Rosette restaurant uses only fresh ingredients and make ample use of the bounties of the West Country, be it fish, locally reared beef and lamb and seasonal vegetables and fruits.
An à la carte changes on a regular basis but could possibly begin with starters of Cornish crab with pink grapefruit on avocado guacamole salsa followed by a main course of slices of fillet steak on a rosti potato served with Dijon mustard and mushroom jus. For dessert, a rich chocolate tart with maple and pecan ice cream does full justification as it indulges your craving for something sweet.
10 Kenwyn Street, Truro, TR1 3DJ [Map]
With an unusual name reminiscent of what the Himalayan kingdom is famous for, Yak and Yeti is an authentic Nepalese restaurant that also serves Indian fare and is tucked away slightly off the beaten track on Church Road. Named after a famous five-star hotel in Kathmandu, the hotel has a carefully constructed menu that includes a twist on the usual while incorporating traditional and well known dishes. The interiors are inviting, with warm wooden floors, a relaxing bar and red and orange colour scheme.
Prepared by Nepalese chefs, the food includes dishes of hariyali chicken; khasi bhutuwa, diced pieces of lamb leg cooked with green peppers, spring onions and Nepali spices; and seafood dishes of karahi king prawns and Goan fish curry. Specialties also include gurkhali chicken; pokhareli lamb and momos - Nepalese dumplings made with minced lamb. With vegetarian fare being so popular, the menu also includes dishes incorporating this very British preoccupation.
With an affordable wine list, guests can either choose their pick or settle for a cold Kathmandu beer to go with their meal.
1 Moor View, Foe Street, Grampound, nr Truro, TR2 4RT [Map]
For those of you for whom the pangs (no pun intended) of longing for Chinese food whilst sunning yourselves in glorious Cornwall, are overwhelming, there is but one answer - whatever the distance or other trifling inconveniences, set forth for Grampound, having first carefully reserved yourself a berth, for the reputation is great and the tables few. Here amongst the delights of the English Riviera you can indulge your longings. The food is quite superb by almost any standard and you will probably do best on the a la carte. Furthermore, whatever your darkest feelings about Chinese food and fine wine, forget them for one evening and explore the delights of Mr Lau's wine list. After all the chances are you are on holiday and can afford to leave your prejudices at home, as well as your plastic balance.

All things Cornish hold pride of place here, with locally reared beef and locally caught fish. For lunch, there's a choice of Cornwall brie with chorizo, garlic tiger prawns pan fried in Pernod, Cornish crab pâté and trio of local sausages with onion gravy and parsley mash. Side orders include a warm herb flavoured foccacia loaf. Dinner options run the gamut of chicken breast with Parma ham, roast fillet of pork with plum and ginger sauce, fricassee of wild mushroom linguini and prime Cornish sirloin, fillet or rump steak. The roast terras of ruan duckling, slow roasted and served with a pepper sauce, is the establishment's signature dish. Round off with a classic toffee and ginger pie or baked lemon cheesecake. Local beer from Skinners Brewery or a glass of wine adds to the pleasure.
