The Turk's Head was my final pub of the day. It's a Fuller's pub situated on a corner plot in a residential area of St Margaret's. The interior felt large and airy and there were plenty of staff available to serve. There appeared to be a function room at the back. The ale selection was lacking though. Fuller's London Pride & Oliver's Island were supplemented by Butcombe Haka. Probably an above-average Fuller's establishment.

For clarity I am Fiona, the GM of The Turks Head. With reference to the comment from StMargs, I am sorry you have issues with The Turks Head, I am also disappointed you have used my name to be critical when as a 'regular' you are aware that I have been on Maternity since February.
I would be happy to meet yourself and discuss these personally.

Can somebody at Fullers please take an interest in The Turks Head. You had a great local community pub on your hands and it makes me weep how badly things have gone downhill since Fiona took over.
Most evenings the pub is empty, most weekends the garden is full of screaming kids. Someone must have noticed that the locals are staying away in droves, and that when there are groups they are a bit chavy and from outside the area (I know that sounds snobby - but The Turks is a local pub not a high street Weatherspoons and those groups don't come back)
The staff are really bad - surly and lazy - I am sick of taking glasses back to the bar so that I can see the person on the other side of the table. I'm talking stacks of pint glasses not just one or two, and almost every night. The pub is unclean, and toilets are filthy, paperless and stink.
We used to have a pub you could walk into on the way home, always know someone in there and always a friendly face serving who knew my drink and said hi, how was your day. No more I'm afraid. Now we get a surly "What?" from the beast woman, or scabbies man scratching over your pint as he pours it.
And at 11pm - bang, bright lights turned on, your drink taken physically out of your hand and told to get out. This by people who see me in the pub almost every day after work and usually once or twice at the weekend.
We're locals, supporters of the pub, not scum. There is no concept of building connections with the locals.
Food is overpriced, menu lacking, and the dining room is just dead space.
The only night the pub is busy is when Sugar T play, but now the St Margarets Tavern have poached the band this too has gone.
Someone at Fullers must be taking note that the takings are way down - as locals we have loved this pub for years but with a sad heart we are voting with our feet. If you would like to talk to us about this Fullers, we'll be in the St Margarets with all the other locals - first pints on us.

Looks as if the quiz has now gone.
Three people in the pub last Tuesday evening.
Didn't bother going in.

Post refurb and change of management, this pub has gone steadily downhill.

The food is overpriced and under par. Don't bother with a Sunday roast - bland, mean on the meat, and boring (lukewarm) boiled veg served separately.

In fact, don't bother at the weekends at all, as it's full of unruly children.

The staff are disinterested and incompetent. Tables are left to pile up with empty glasses, overflowing ashtrays and general detritus without anyone giving them a second glance. There doesn't seem to be any management. I saw that they were advertising on their Facebook page recently for staff - 'no experience necessary' - and goodness, it shows!

The toilets are either strewn with toilet paper, or there is none to be found. The chains are all broken so you have to tiptoe to grab them and flush. I have found them in varying states of cleanliness.

As others have mentioned, the acoustics are now terrible (reminds me of a swimming baths) and the 'restaurant' is completely dead space.

All in all, with the St Margarets down the road (which is fine), and the Crown recently reopened with a beautiful garden and sympathetic refurb, there are better places to spend your money.
