Well the decorations will be coming down shortly and we will be closing for a few days to give the building some TLC. We are closed from Monday 7th, reopening on Friday 11th Jan 4pm. The walls are having a lick of paint and hopefully our drive is having a tidy up too (weather permitting). We are also having ‘super-fast’ broadband installed, so it will be even easier to work from home, from the comfort of the pub! With your support 2018 has been a fabulous year for us and we are very excited about what 2019 will bring. We wish you all a a wonderful year too.

Did You Know – We are pretty green at The Turks Head. The building and our water are heated by a biomass boiler. We only use biodegradable cleaning solutions and we now have two 7kw car charging points in the carpark – Free to use whilst you visit us. Our food miles are pretty low as we buy most of our produce from local suppliers. Our bread flour comes from Woodbridge Tide Mill. Our meat and eggs are all free range. We have been using paper straws for quite a while now and we recycle as much as we can. This year we will continue to improve on this further.
