Turk's HeadChapel Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This 13th-century pub, said to be the oldest in Penzance, has been linked to invasions by Turks and Spaniards, and of course smuggling – a tunnel to the harbour still exists. Nowadays rather food-orientated, you are nevertheless welcome to stop by just for a drink. There are three small low-beamed rooms on split levels; award-winning food is served in the bar, separate dining room and cellar diner. At the rear is a covered patio and sun-trap walled garden.
