My second visit post-lockdown and the attention to safety, cleanliness and customer service is even better. From the moment of arrival through to the final lip smacking after a gorgeous dessert was consumed, I loved the experience. Safe, spaced out but still atmospheric! We were...escorted promptly to our table, served some of the best food I've had in ages (no exaggeration!) and managed to enjoy some much needed catch-up time with family. Have to say the one way system works really well at this pub, given the bar is plonked centrally in the venue. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again. A big thanks and shout out to Darius and Francis for making the visit perfect.More

This lovely pub is just off the busy A316 near Twickenham Rugby ground but is actually an oasis of calm, located in a quiet residential road. Great attention was given to current Covid procedures. I was there for lunch and ate in the spacious outside...courtyard area. I had an excellent vegetarian curry and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The whole experience was first rate- highly recommended.More

I visited with family on a Saturday night in August. My dad hadn't been out to the pub since the pandemic began so this was his first proper outing and we were so impressed with how they had set everything up to keep everything sanitised...and make everyone comfortable. We were greeted at the door where a member of staff explained how things worked & we were shown to our table. There were hand sanitising stations positioned throughout the pub & there was a good distance between tables. They offered table service which was brilliant and there were loads of staff working who were all so polite & friendly and we never had to wait long for a drink. The number of guests at the pub was kept to a reasonable number, which is quite different to other pubs i've been to where they seem to fit in as many people as possible. The food was great, the drinks were lovely and we had a perfect evening after not being able to get together as a family for months. It was definitely the best handling of COVID-19 at a pub that I've seen and we will definitely be back!More

Despite this being my first visit to the Turk’s Head I was warmly greeted at the door like I was an old regular. A reassuring explanation of the Covid-safety measures included the one-way system in the pub and table service only. No problem at all,...as you’re given single-use menus for food, bar and wines and the service is super-attentive. I ordered the Vegan Chilli which was absolutely delicious; served with fluffy white rice and a portion of guacamole (something I wouldn’t have thought of adding, but certainly will do in the future). At no time did I feel unsafe at the Turk’s Head. Social distancing seems to be very well organised and the pub (and its toilets) are spotlessly clean. In summary the food is excellent, the staff are really friendly and the rules around Covid make you feel totally safe without being so overbearing that they’d suck the fun out of being at the pub in the first place.More

I’ve visited since lockdown was partially lifted and can’t fault the pub for implementing the safety measures required. It felt very safe and the food menu, although reduced, still had lots on offer. The food was great, and it was great to feel almost normal...againMore

It's been 4 months since I last went to a bar or pub of any sort. Naturally, there was some trepidation about visiting one so soon after restrictions have been lifted. I needn't have worried at all. From arrival to departure I couldn't have felt...more safe and relaxed than spending a few hours with some great food and drink at the Turk's. The staff really go all out to ensure your safety and comfort, from the desk at the door and hand sanisitiser station, through the single use menu's, to the one way system of the bar. The pub is naturally very well suited to a one-way system actually due to its 'doughnut ring' layout'. Plenty of space inside between each table. Had the weather been better on the day I went I'd have been out in the garden. It's to the landlord's credit that he's managed to pull off what could have been (and probably is!) a very tricky reopening so seamlessly. I'll be back before I know it.More

Really disappointed with the visit, we popped in to have a few drinks and some bar snacks. We arrived and when we first went to order items from the vegan menu (which is on especially for January). We we’re advised 2 items of the 3...on the menu were unavailable so we had to review again. We went up a second time to order veggie items from the bar menu, 3 further items of the 4 we requested were also off the menu. We were offered chips as an alternative. I appreciate that some menus may run out however to have 5 of the 7 items we wanted to not be available isn’t very good.More

We attended for the Burns night supper. I had seen their online publicity which said there were to be bagpipes and an address to the haggis. On that premise I made the booking, but the piper must have played for about a minute to introduce...the haggis ceremony and then disappeared, which we found very disappointing. The ode to the haggis was however excellent. The meal was good, though the haggis was a little too peppery for our taste and the marmalade and whisky bread and butter pudding was excellent, though it would have been better if it had been hot rather than lukewarm. Service was a bit variable, with several young men wandering aimlessly around. Our order for a drink at the start failed to come and eventually arrived on the second time of asking, twenty minutes after we arrived. All in all a pleasant experience but it could have been better with some Scottish music and more attentive service.More

A group of us went to the Saturday evening comedy club at the Turk's Head. There were far too many people allowed entrance, meaning standing room only at the back. The comedians were less than funny and not entertaining at all. Long queues to get...served at the bar. Really disappointing.More

Very true... And an episode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror too.
