Set in the iconic Trevaunance Cove, St Agnes, The Driftwood Spars is a brewpub. Trevanaunce is the main beach at St Agnes, a best kept secret, with Trevallas Cove also not far away.
The brewery there was founded in 2000, making gluten-free and many vegan craft beers, which you can also buy online. One of the most popular is Alfie’s Revenge, a red ale named after a stuffed red squirrel which used to live in the bar!
Here you will find proper Cornish ales and homemade food, or simply a barista style coffee. It is a true Cornish coastal pub just a stone’s throw away from the cove. With epic sea views, parking, and the brewery, which offers tours, there is plenty to enjoy right at this superb spot.
This is another pub with a real sense of history. The Spars were giant driftwood beams salvaged from shipwrecks in the 1650s, used as an integral part of the building, which started as a tin mining warehouse as befits its location. Later, it became a chandlery, sail making loft and fish cellar.
In the beer garden is the Crib Shack, a converted shipping container made into a casual eating spot. Perfect for alcoholic and soft drinks, hot chocolates and coffees, ice creams, cakes, sandwiches, and of course, doggy ice creams. The beach at Trevaunance is also open all year to dogs on leads, so dogs are of course always welcome at the inn.
