We all had the Christmas menu two courses . The turkey was very tasty with rich gravy, the vegetables were plentiful and the roasties were great (and plenty of it) . The Christmas pud was to die for .the bubbly blond waitress was lovely and very attentive . We would definitely go back .

I am currently down from Oxfordshire visiting some family in cornwall. We came to the Turks Head this evening for our first of many christmas dinners and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I speak for the other two members of the party when saying the food was perfect and the hospitality was top notch! The atmosphere that is... More

Sadly disappointing. A group of us went for the Christmas menu and pre-ordered our food when making the booking. The pub describes itself on its own website as “serving the freshest, finest local produce” and that “Our food has been recognised by numerous awards”. It is also noted on their website that Lee Groves, former Masterchef Professional semi-finalist leads the... More

Warm welcome I am a very fussy eater with a few allergies, and they asked me what I would like and prepared it specially for me without any fuss. The Mulled wine was spot on - very tasty - just right not too sharp. The restaurant is a little dated, but in keeping with what I would expect and is... More

We went in by chance as we were staying at The Chocolate House. The staff were very freindly and helpful. We mixed and matched the menu with the Xmas and the server advised we could choose 2 courses so we could share dessert if we wished. The portions were more than adequate with 2 of us choosing Lamb burgers and... More

We had been in here the night before for a glass of wine and when we were trying to decide where to go for dinner we just headed back. I had medallions of monk fish and my wife had linguine with Mediterranean vegetables and chicken. The dish didn't come with chicken but when asked there was no problem adding it.... More

Has high hopes after reading reviews but came away feeling let down. Service and welcome was great. Food was disappointing - someone has forgot this is a pub. We are not big eaters and I very really finish a meal when out. I order the hake at £13.95, the fish was well cook, although the couple of prawns and calamari... More

On a very wet cold dark Monday morning we had a lot of shopping to do in Penzance. We stopped for lunch at the Turks Head. A warm welcome from the staff. We really enjoyed our meal. It is also dog friendly. We have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.

We were pleasantly surprised to find upscale food at a perfect little pub in Penzance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Their seafood chowder was great and the fish and chips was good also. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable.
