The Turks Head provides a competitive opportunity for a creative and ambitious operator. You will be at the helm of the oldest pub in Penzance. A Cornish Sea shanty style pub offering the best food and drink where friends and families gather, new friendships are made, and experiences shared. You’ll ensure that the Turks Head is a must-visit for locals and tourists in the summer months.
We’re looking for a creative visionary, a chameleon who is highly skilled at adapting service style for the occasion. You will set an ethos and camaraderie and recruit staff with compelling personalities.
The Turks Head needs the ultimate host who makes guests feel relaxed and reassured in their company as they exude confidence and pride in their pub. You will nurture a sense of belonging on both sides of the bar. With a keen eye for detail, you’ll ensure that you execute simple things to perfection.
You’ll be passionate about beer and food quality, having run a successful community business. You’ll also excel serving at volume, understand seasonal trading and have a proven track record of recruiting, training, and leading a team. You’ll be keen to host regular events, taking advantage of the hidden garden and quirky trading areas.
The Pub and Location
The Turks Head sits in one of the oldest streets in town and a stone’s throw away from the Penzance harbour.
Penzance is the most westerly town in Cornwall, a major tourist and commercial centre. It offers seasonal visitor attractions, events, and activities throughout the year.
It’s a beautiful pub. An old stone terrace building with three main trading areas: a bar, restaurant, and hidden garden (80 covers in total). The restaurant comprises quirky trading spaces, and the kitchen sits between the restaurant and the garden. You’ll take advantage of the good-sized, covered garden area at the rear, complete with on-street parking.
Guests enjoy the unique atmosphere of a place steeped in intrigue, history, and mystery. It’s a magical venue when you imagine yourself taking a drink in the same place that pirates and smugglers once attended some 750 years ago!
The kitchen serves the freshest, finest local produce, recognised by numerous awards. Guests take in the Cornish sun while eating their meal al fresco in the covered seating area.
You will discover two bedrooms with a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
