The Turks Head // Penzance

The Turk's Head - Penzance

Set on Penzance’s historic Chapel Street the Turk’s Head lays claim to being the oldest pub in town with a tavern of some sort located here since the 13th century. This cosy pub was once the haunt of sea dogs and smugglers with stories of a hidden tunnel leading directly to the harbour.

The tunnel and contraband may have gone but the pub still serves a fine selection of local ales and retains plenty of olde worlde charm.

The Turk’s Head has long been known for its pub lunches and in particular its crab sandwiches. Evening meals are also served with standard pub grub along with a few seafood specials. In the summer the courtyard garden at the rear of the pub is an option.

Food served 7 days a week. 12 noon to 2.30pm and 6pm to 9pm. Vegan options available.
