More than just a Pub
The Driftwood Spars is a historic building and still today is an essential part of the St Agnes Community. We are a proper pub, with our own brewery, but we also offer excellent food and a Bed & Breakfast. We host various community groups here so it wouldn't be unusual to stumble across St Agnes Players, the Euchrelayle Orchestra, a wildlife talk, surf club meeting or a book club. It's hard to describe, so its best to pop by yourself.
The Spars in the Driftwood relate to the huge beams or spars that keep the Driftwood standing. They were salvaged from shipwrecks along the coast and were utilised to build the Driftwood in the 1650s. The building itself offers a wealth of history having been converted from a tin mining warehouse, chandlery, sail making loft and fish cellar over the years to a hotel with bar in the early 1900’s and a public bar in the 1940’s.
Dining at the Driftwood
Here at the Driftwood we love our food as much as we love our drink. In the bars we offer wholesome pub food & then Fitty Pysk our seafood Bistro is open in the summer and offers fresh fish with a daily changing menu (a meat & vegetarian option is available).
We love a good party, and the best one you can have is your own wedding. If you want a seaside location with delicious food, lovely wine, amazing seaviews and friendly staff we are your ideal choice. Check out our wedding pack and then phone Hollie to have a look around and a chat to see if what we offer matches your vision of your special day.
And so to bed...
In addition to all the above we have 15 bedrooms in our Bed & Breakfast, 5 have seaviews, 6 are in our annex (4 of which are family rooms). They are all ensuite with tea and coffee facilites, colour TV and most are served with superfast broadband (the wind and rain does interrupt this at times). From November - February we have special offers so check them out 3 nights for the price of 2 is the most popular.
The Driftwood Sausage and Ale Festival
Every May Day bank holiday we have a sausage and ale festival, we get our favourite beers in and get local butchers to make sausages for us. It's also Bolster weekend in the village so there are various activities and lots of live music.
In the Drink
The Annual Outsid'er festival takes place the weekend after Easter. It's all about celebrating the great outdoors, which is why many people come and visit St Agnes. The landscape is stunning - come and play in it.
