Cornish Food Box Shop & Cafe

Situated on one of Truro’s most historic and beautiful streets, our shop is like nothing you’ll have seen anywhere else. The building is a one-off with a history to match its wonky floors, cellars and listed 1920’s socialist slogans! Originally built in the 1800’s as a maltings, The Stores on Walsingham Place, has also been a boxing club, a coffin store and a socialist workers hall but had lain empty for years before we took on the lease and opened our doors in September 2013.

Open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm


The Cornish Food Box Company, The Stores, 7 Walsingham Place, Truro, Cornwall, TR1 2RP.   01872 211533 (Shop - option 2, Cafe - option 3)
