We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and chatting to a postman he told us about this place. We received a warm friendly welcome. I had the fish tapas and it was delicious and good value for money would definitely recommend it

We ate here after discovering this pub whilst on holiday and seeing the menu. The food was delicious and the menu varied. This is a must visit pub bursting with history and character and the staff were great.

We popped by The Turks Head on a whim and found a gem of a place! The seafood starter was to die for and the fish was superb! We will stop by here every time we're in the area and I recommend it to all....More
