Skinner's Brewery

About the Pub

This is Skinner's Brewery tap right in the centre of Truro. The ornate frontage of this former draper's shop gives way to an atmospheric open-plan interior. The atmospheric ground level bar features wooden flooring, beams, uprights and furnishings, various old artefacts adding character. There are anything up to 8 draught real ales, mostly varied within the Skinner's range, with a guest beer or two offered mainly in summer, and up to 6 changing real ciders. Some 40 lines also offer various craft keg and foreign beers. Free monkey nuts are available from old wooden barrels, the empty shells being freely scattered on the floor by customers. Upstairs is a quieter drinking area which doubles as a function room. Live music appears on Friday and Saturday nights. No food, but you may bring your own.
