A Smuggler’s Paradise

The Turk’s Head Inn

A store in a brick building Description automatically generated

Invaded by Jerusalem’s jilted, partially burnt down by the Spaniards and adored by the pirates… The Turk’s Head was once home to a hideout for priests, a cell for drunkards and a (still standing) tunnel for smugglers that leads right down to the harbour. The oldest pub in Penzance has certainly had a mad history since its establishment in 1233, but it hasn’t lost its head when it comes to food – winning numerous accolades along the way. Enjoy lentil curries, confit duck leg and Newlyn’s catch of the day in the old haunt of Cornwall’s infamous. Book tables at 01736 363093, enjoy a few pints and be glad that the drunkard’s cell is no longer in use.
