Our first visit to the Scilly Isles and although staying in St Marys, high on my visiting list was the Turks Head,the most south westerly pub in the UK and the only pub on St Agnes, a 20 minute boat ride.

Such a popular place that there were no pasties or crab salads as they had sold out. If you know you are going to st Agnes go to the Turks head as soon as you land and place your order for lunch to avoid disappointment.

...it's great to visit this pub on one of the supper boats from St Mary's. It's very busy but you just politely find a couple of spare seats at an already occupied table, get chatting to strangers, eat a lovely meal served efficiently by the friendly staff, have a few drinks, and leave the pub having made new friends...a perfect...

This pub is handy for the quay on St Agnes and a good place to wait for the boat. There is plenty of seating outside with lovely seaviews.

The tourists are a bit annoying as they bark orders rudely (you have to feel sorry for the locals) but it's the best pub on Scilly - and the food is great. Nice staff too.

Once again the Turks head welcomed us from the evening supper boat. The atmosphere is just brilliant, ale was spot on as usual and we had a really good home cooked meal.

Niki and her team were so welcoming we came back 7 times. Twice we had dinner, which all enjoyed, and we sampled every cider, perry and ale

This is our second visit for a week on St Agnes. The Turks Head landlady Nicky and all her staff are very welcoming and friendly. Great beer, good food. Best view on the islands from the beer garden. We drank and ate here most days and we're never disappointed. They also welcomed our Jack Russell Eric with open arms, especially... More

Simple food well cooked, a great range of wines and beer, very good service and a stunningly good view over the bay....what more do you want? Well, yes the sun shone. Eating in the terraced garden was a bonus. The only disappointment was that we didn't take the advice on the menu board when we visited earlier for coffee and... More
