Beers and ales at The Turk's Head


Located in the heart of the city centre next to the Guildhall is one of the regions oldest pubs and a favourite watering hole of Charles Dickens - or so we believe... 

Recently restored to its former glory, The Turk's Head is back with a bang and ready to showcase the 700+ year history.  

Providing our visitors which ample opportunity to enjoy themselves whether that's relaxing on our terrace looking at the original stained glass windows, or watching live sports on our TVs. Or perhaps, you are a wondering traveller who needs a place to rest their weary head. If so, you can stay in the refurbished rooms used centuries ago by previous travellers. 

The Turk's Head also has its own microbrewery, so pull up a pew enjoy some drinks in one of Exeter's oldest boozers!
