It's a really nice pub and the range and quality of food is not what you'd typically expect in a pub. Bouillabaisse was really good (could have done with more) as was the chicken leg confit. Only really criticism is when fish and chips is offered in a small or large you expect a decent size if you order large. It was really nice but just never a large portion.......still a good place to have lunch....can't fault quality or presentation

A regular trip to Penzance and always a visit to The Turks Head... Fish pie always chosen. Music ..70's.. brilliant.
Just a lovely Cornish pub and worth a visit

Food is lovely and it's OK to be a vegetarian here too! Great atmosphere and historic feel to this pub. Just what you need after a 7 hour journey from West Sussex. We'll be back next time we're in Penzance
