Further Details

LEE Groves, Masterchef Professional 2010 semi-finalist, has taken on the stove at the Turks Head, Penzance.

Lee has worked at some highly decorated establishments and is well known in the Cornish chef’s circuit.

After gaining many accolades while working in Cornwall, Lee has taken on the challenge of improving the already well-known reputation of the Turks Head.

Lee said: “I’m happy to be working in a pub again. It’s a different environment with a different type of clientele.

“I am currently working on a new menu, keeping some of the traditional favourites, but introducing some new modern dishes with a quirky twist.

“Eating out has changed and pubs are the way forward. So many pubs are offering restaurant quality food without stuffiness and pretense.

“You can come to the Turks Head and sit at the bar with a pint of real ale and a crab sandwich or a glass of the finest wine and a plate of seafood.

“I want to expand on this concept, look at The Hand In Flowers for example, and make the Turks Head the best food pub in and around Penzance”.
