Having visited this pub st various times I must write another review. Previously, we have been very happy to come hear. Having had visitors from London we wanted to take them out to on of our local food pubs. As it was Saturday night I phoned Friday to book a table. When we arrived at the pub they said our... More

I have been here on lots of occasions and cannot fault the food in any way. The Sunday dinner is the best in the area by a long way. Also they can do large bookings, I have been twice for family birthday party's, with booking for 15 to 20. Guests. And both times were brilliant. The price of the food... More

I had the best fish and chips I've ever had. The batter was light and the fish cooked to perfection it melted in my mouth. Excellent chips too. Mother-in-law had the roast lamb and she couldn't fault it and she's very fussy! Hubby enjoyed his salmon too. Great meal and great staff.

We visit Alcester quite often and visit this pub on occasions. It feels like if your not a "local" who perch at and completely block the bar, then you are treated with a little indifference by the bar staff. Its a pretty busy place so don't expect on an evening to be able to sit anywhere with your drink. Very... More

The food is always excellent and the service is warm and friendly. Think it even... More

Asked for a table for 5 at 1.45pm as I could see a table was just leaving, a brunette girl barked " we are fully booked today" and turned on her heel and walked off. My partner then went in and asked and the same girl said she'd look for him, then she walked off. After a few minutes she... More

TurksH, Owner at The Turks Head, responded to this review

You visited us on our busiest week of the year which is not an excuse for our lack of warmth when explaining (twice) that we were full but maybe a reason. Owner managed businesses like ours operate with pride and commitment and we expect great things from our staff. We are sometimes helped by customers who flag areas for improvement.... More

Made a detour on the way home from a holiday specially to have lunch at the Turks Head, having read lots of Tripadvisor reviews of it. We were not disappointed! It was a very busy Friday lunchtime, but the friendly staff are super-efficient, taking orders for drinks as well as food, so you don't have to queue at the bar,... More
