Cheers to three years!

Draw the curtains, flick the lights…haaaappy birthday to us, haaaappy birthday to us…

That’s right! Merchant House is three years old! No doubt we’ll be marking the occasion with Chef Dave’s lip smacking homemade cake and the Merchant House coffee you know and love.

Sharing is caring, so here are a few highlights from our three glorious years in Truro:

2012: Merchant House owner and all-round hospitality hero Nicky Whittaker takes the wheel at Merchant House, with big plans to run a business hotel that really makes the difference!




2013: Our hero, Chef Dave, starts a delicious kitchen position at Merchant House cooking up all sorts of sweets, savouries and unbeatable breakfasts. Learn about the man with the magic whisks here



2014: Our ‘Little Guide to Conferences’ goes live, a showcase of our superb events spaces. Oh! And Merchant Mutt Murphy got his own Instagram account, the little rascal! (So you – or perhaps more importantly, us – can see exactly what the furry tyke’s been up to.)



2015: A comprehensive room refurbishment in early 2015 has brought a whole new level of ‘aaah, bliss’, into our cosy, comfortable and king sized rooms. Dog-friendly spaces are included, so Merchant House is most definitely the place to be this summer!

Our time so far at Merchant House has been an absolute pleasure, so here’s to another three years of coffee, cake and cosy evenings by the log burner. Cheers!
