I ate here twice, during my stay in Penzance because I was impressed by the service, the food and the friendly welcome. None of the dishes I tried were a let-down, and the portions were generous (perhaps a little too generous in the case of the lamb's liver and mash - but I always forget that I have a limited... More

Unexpected gem, this bustling friendly pub serves excellent quality local food. We had delicious locally caught mackerel and slow-cooked braised steak. Good value too.

A good, old fashioned British pub in a seaside town and though we just popped in to meet friends for a drink, I'd like to eat here. We were there on a Sunday lunchtime and the roast dinner looked great AND they cater for vegetarians. Will go back. Aldo has a nice little garden.

I visit the Turks Head every evening whenever I stay in Penzance (about 2-4 times per year) and I have never been disappointed. This time was no exception and there was the added bonus of many new dishes on the menu as well as the old favourites. The food is always fresh and local, and is cooked and presented perfectly....

We visited the Turk's on a midweek evening and were offered a really warm welcome by our waitress (Sarah - I think) and she looked after us very well. The food was excellent and overall we had a very enjoyable meal. With two children (6&8) we didn't hang around for long after eating and we were able to pay up... More

Hadn't been expecting a good meal in Penzance having been disappointed a few years back, but feeling really elated after stumbling across The Turks Head tonight. Interesting menu drew us in, very friendly, helpful staff sealed the deal. Excellent food, well presented; good wine and beer. I thoroughly recommend this place.

We visited Penzance several years ago & remembered the very good meals we had at the Turk's Head: I'm pleased to report that the standard was just as high at the end of July when we returned. We were a little worried on the Monday evening when we were warned that, due to so many visitors, we might have to... More
