Visited here after it was recommended by an ex employee. Food was nice and hot and very delicious and there was ample there. (The chef was a runner up two/three years ago in master chef)Would visit again next time we are in town. The staff was very polite and helpful.

We have been going to the Turk's Head for many years and continue to enjoy an evening out there. The pub has a good atmosphere: it has local and guest real ales: the food is good and good value - all of the things you want in a pub.

we are there the other day and ordered a Crab Sandwich. The bread was fresh, the crab was super tasty and there was service with a smile. They had there own branded Ale and the atmosphere was great. Coming back to Penzance from New Zealand after nearly 10 years this was one of the highlights. Thank you.

Friendly service. Selection of specials. The fish and chips are quite big. Desserts very rich and tasty but we gave the burnt toast ice cream a miss!
