Popped in here for a quick drink and must say the staff and service were great. Super friendly. We didn't eat here but the menu looked varied and interesting. I can thoroughly recommend the pub for drinks!!

We popped in there last night for a quick pint.. the pub was lovely on the inside, with a good looking dinner menu (shame we weren't eating there).. the beer was good, and the atmosphere friendly, would go there again.

This is a charming old pub. We had a lovely meal here, I had mushroom soup, followed by a burger, with chilli cheesy chips. It was all very tasty, washed down with ale and red wine. The barman had a great 70s / 80s playlist on, very suited to the customers. We had a very enjoyable evening, great food, great... More

Had lunch there today and we'll definitely go back. We had sea bream and fish pie as main which were both really tasty. My wife said the sticky toffee pudding was a 10 and my apple and fennel tart tatin was also really good great atmosphere with a real fire and old features

Cornish beers in general and the ones served here are like some sort of holy libation. I don't know if it's the lack of preservatives or mass-produced bitters on tap but they are always delicious and actually make you feel as if they are feeding your soul. They certainly inspired this review. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect... More

Myself and a close group of friends decided to go for a nice local meal. We chose the Turks head due to hearing good feedback from friends and family. To start, the landlady met us with a smile on her face and showed us to a table. The waiting staff made the place feel welcoming and relaxed. The food was... More

Popped in here for an early dinner as we'd worn ourselves out walking the coast path and wanted somewhere close to where we were staying; it got the edge over the Admiral Benbow down the road thanks to a slightly more adventurous-sounding and neatly-displayed menu. The bar was warm, cluttered and cosy, and quite full thanks to a large family... More
