Turks Head

The Turks Head is the oldest pub in Penzance, steeped in history and family home of Thomas Holloway.

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.

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.

Vegan menu available.

Food served 7 day a week. 12 noon – 2.30pm and 6pm – 9pm.


Been in Penzance for nearly a week. Eaten out every evening. Had some excellent meals, but the Turks Head Inn was by far the best so far. Three perfectly cooked steaks and a meal off the board of the day. The chef even came up to enquire if everything was cooked as requested. Attention to detail was superb, along with very good staff, great experience.”
