There has been a pub on the corner of Scandrett Street and Green Bank in Wapping since at least 1986. Restored it in the 1980s, the original building was once infamous for being the local inn where the last quart of ale was served to condemned pirates on their way from Newgate to Execution Dock.

During WW2 the eccentric and formidable landlady, Mog Murphy, kept the pub open at all hours for the local community to receive news of their loved ones.

The Turks Head remains a landmark for the community to this day. Since October of 2019 it has been lovingly restored and we are proud to carry the tradition forward. Drafts and spirits are finally back! While we have added a pinch of European flavour to the classic home made burger and bistro dishes, we serve a traditional Full English Breakfast and brunch until 2pm, with a wonderful seasonal menu from 2pm until late.

During the summer we have a Sunday Barbeque in the garden patio from 1pm and offer a complimentary luxury hamper with a picnic rug for those who prefer to wander into the adjoining Wapping Garden park and lounge
on the lawn. Our standard menu is still available until 1pm and table bookings are currently by phone only.
