The Turks Head is right by the harbour and therefore very easy to find. We had been on the long trip round Bishop’s Rock without anything to eat, and stepping in here was the natural thing to do. I think we both had the fish...More

Having been visiting the Turks Head for over 20 years, I've not had a disappointing visit yet. Sure, the food can sometimes be a bit hit-or-miss, but all of that gets forgotten as you sit in the beer garden and take in the views. STUNNING.

We liked this place a lot and had pasties and ale for lunch. Its cosy, quaint and friendly. The pasties are awesome and the owner is v nice. Shuts from end of Oct until sometime near to Easter.

Had a great pint and pub lunch, the whitebait were very tasty, the pasty was above average and the service was friendly.

Friendly bar staff. Pea and ham soup tasted lovely but a little watery. Lovely location. Sat outside - nice weather, great view . Dog treats available for a donation.

We always serve food from 12 to 2:30 every day of the year that we are open. Many people phone the pub to order pasties, we need this cutoff time for pasties as it takes an hr to bake them. It is impossible for all...More

No wonder the place is up for sale, management and staff not interested. 50 minute wait for reheated cheap sausages with mash, fish pie warm not hot and an overcooked burger. The building looks scruffy and uncared for.

Came over on the Supper Boat from St Mary’s, booked a table ahead as wasn’t sure how busy it might get. Relatively small pub but with plenty of outdoor seating although it was a bit too chilly to eat outside. The bar gets crowded as...More

If you visit St Agnes you simply have to have a pint and order a locally-made pastie, which is ready by lunchtime and in time for you to enjoy before the boat back to St Mary's. Great ale and friendly staff cap it all off...More

If you make time to arrive here about an hour before your boat is due then there is nothing better than a lazy drink overlooking the bay.
