A Day with Dad in Truro

Dad, you rock! And on Father’s Day it’s the one day of the year it’s ok to shout it from the rooftops. We’ve put together a top ‘to do in Truro’ for dad this Father’s Day so if you’re stuck for inspiration, look no further.


What Dad doesn’t love a round of golf followed by a swift pint or two at the golf club? You can’t go wrong with a round of golf, some practice time at the driving range or push the boat out with a private lesson by a PGA professional.


A little more energetic and with substantially more bruising afterwards, the adventure-seeking dad may quite like a game of paintball! The question is, can he really outrun and out-hide his children? Enjoy ducking and diving and paint the town red at Truro Paintball!

Artist Lesson

Does Dad dream of being an artist? Why not consider a painting or writing class? Great for expressing a more creative side, workshops such as these help him to relax and learn how to take time out for him.

Bowl him Over…

Why not head to Truro Bowl and play Dad at a game of bowling? A chance to try your hand at beating your old man? Better still, on a Sunday, they offer “Twilight Bowling” from 6pm – you could enjoy a few games of bowling before heading back to Mannings for cocktails and dinner. Or you could enjoy cocktails first (that’s the way to beat him – you might need bumpers in the lanes though!)

Brunch, of course!

Well, the most enjoyable thing for any man is surely to eat good food! We looked at everything we could offer for Dad on Sunday 21st June and it all came back to food! We thought about offering a sit down Sunday roast but we asked around and got the same feedback – Dad doesn’t want to sit at a formal gathering, he just wants a nice fry-up, meats, cheeses, pastries, tea/coffee, maybe a pint of cold ale and the daily newspapers. So that’s what we’ve provided! Join us for a Father’s Day Brunch on 21st June for only £15 per person, to include continental breakfast, full English, tea/coffee and a complimentary pint of beer for Dad – Cheers!
