Turks Head


Historic Cornish pub serving freshly caught, locally sourced meals to suit all budgets - 01736 363093

The oldest pub in Penzance

Experience the unique atmosphere of place in history that is steeped in intrigue and mystery. Imagine yourself taking a drink in the same place that Pirates and Smugglers once used some 750 years ago. This is one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall. An underground tunnel leading from the harbour was used to secretly transport their bounty just before their evenings rest at the Public Bar. This can still be seen from our courtyard.


Allow your imagination to wander as you decide what to do. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in the comfort of the bar area. Ponder over the selection of food from our extensive menu or simply enjoy the ambience of a local friendly pub.


Our kitchen serves the freshest, finest local produce, recognised by numerous awards. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy. Take in the Cornish sun while eating your meal al fresco in our covered seating area.
