wonderful meal

A little on the expensive side but very well cooked I have tried the sausages with Parsnip mash and cranberry sauce, the ham with mustard mash, and fish and chips and was not disappointed with any of them. The Betty Stoggs real ale is wonderful. The atmosphere is great, I have enjoyed meals at... read more

We were recommended to have lunch here. We had the fish and chips. Freshly cooked however expensive for the portion size. The mushy peas about 2 tablespoons in a tiny condiment bowl. We have had better fish and chips for a lot less in price. There are much better places to try. We will probably not return even though it... More

I was recommended this pub for the food and I wasn't disappointed (unlike my hotel) and the staff were warm and friendly. The pub had a great selection for beers and wine. A proper seaside pub full of character and atmosphere.

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 went here for a drink over the Christmas holidays while staying in Newlyn.We had been previously about 5 years ago and loved it so decided to return, however my mulled wine was very cloudy as if it had been in the pot for too long and all the fruit has turned to mush. At £4 a glass i was... More

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.

The oldest pub in the town, the Turks Head consistently offers good food and drink, good service, and a good atmosphere.

This Pub has it all. We went in July 2014 and again last week, each time excellent. In July we sat in the rear courtyard, a drink, a brilliant lunch, doing the crossword. The food choice and quality would put some hotels to shame. Just prior to New Year we went back after making a long term booking, it was... More
