Thegourmeturk (formerly the Boars Head) in Bishop's Stortford has a long and illustrious history, having been in place opposite St Michael's Church since at least the 15th century, and was then the brewery for the church ales. The building is stunning, with the original black and white and Tudor beams, and really looks almost unchanged. The pub was visited by Samuel Pepys, until he had a falling out with the landlady, and switched his allegiances elsewhere! This handsome former pub, was sympathetically renovated in 2017 and transformed into the sumptuous TheGourmeturk. Open 7 days a week, TheGourmeturk has a passion for serving unrivalled Turkish fine dining, it offers a warm welcome, the staff are attentive and it's the place to spend a relaxing evening with friends and family.
