As Peter says this is pretty much a restaurant. The same 3 stools were the only places to sit on my visit as well, although there were very few people in as they were closing at 3 on a Friday afternoon. 2 handpumps on the bar serving Theakston Best and Wychwood Dogs Bollcks. The DB was OK, but it's not really a pub any more.

The Turks Head is a largish pub just inside Royton that caters heavily for the diner rather than that of the drinker.called in around 2pm on a Thursday and already there was around 35 diners in,with every table in sight set up for meals apart from the three stools in front of the bar.There were 2 cask beers on with the Hobgoblin being in particular in fine form.

A Free House with a good selection of cask ales and lagers. It also has a very comprehensive Menu and Specials Board and the prices are very competitive and, on the occasions I have called in (the last time being this week)the place has been packed with diners. My Wife and I have eaten here on several occasions and have always enjoyed our meals. It is popular so booking is advisable.
Easy access and toilet facilities are provided for disabled customers. There is ample car parking space both in their own car park and at the roadside.
All in all, this is a warm and friendly pub and whether a drinker or a diner you will be more than welcome.
