We've been using the Turks Head for nearly 25 years and on average pop in for a drink about every 3 weeks and a meal less often but fairly regularly. On Sunday 20 Jan we had driven all the way from London to arrive in a cold house with no food, but we're always sure of a warm welcome at the Turks. On this occasion the roaring fire was really welcome as it was freezing outdoors.
We ordered a bottle of Argentinian Malbec and settled ourselves in the corner to await our meal. It was only then that we realised that there was to be a charity quiz night at 8.30pm. Our pork loin chops were nicely cooked and the red cabbage and celeriac mash were seriously delicious. Fortunately we'd finished eating before the quiz started and were able to join in. Sensible questions, not too many about pop music or TV characters/programmes, lots of general knowledge. Really enjoyed it even if we came last - but then, we were a team of 2 taking on the big guns who had up to 6 members in their teams, but the atmosphere was very friendly. We did pick at a shared cheeseboard whilst the quiz proceeded and it had some lush cheeses on it including several local varieties.
