We enjoyed a good lunch in this traditional pub whilst visiting St Agnes. The Turks is known for it's pasties so if you want one it would be advisable to pre book when you get off the boat as we did.

Idyllic setting sitting in the little garden overlooking the sea having lunch. Delicious food shared with a few sparrows.

I was visiting with my family and was recommended this pub. I got off the boat and just amazing the water is soo clear and the views are not to be missed. The food was amazing and portion size was not too bad. Would eat again.

This is the only pub on the island but that does not make it any less welcoming. It is a really good pub, the ale is kept well and presented in excellent quality. Food is also very good with quick and efficient service. Prices are very reasonable. A must when visiting this island.

We had a pleasant afternoon drink here before a sea glass search. The bar was very busy inside and we decamped to the tables outside. Service was efficient and staff were friendly.

We visited for lunch a couple of times as a family. Really good place to stop for a drink, excellent food and views to die for. This must be one of the best pubs in the UK - certainly in my personal top 5!

Stopped here for an evening meal after an afternoon on the beach at St Agnes. It's a popular spot with holidaymakers and locals and was very busy (great atmosphere) but as it was a warmish evening we managed to find a table outside. The location and view are worth a visit alone but we were not disappointed by the food... More
