It is really hard to review a place like this as on one hand I was desperate to smarten it up and give it a makeover / really good clean and on the other hand it isn't pretending to be Chelsea by the sea and perhaps we should accept it for what it is. Having said that, there is no... More

We have stayed in ST Agnes a few times, and during our visits we have had a beer or two in the Driftwood spars. The staff are friendly and the have a good selection on beers, ciders and wines. Will always return when in the area...

My husband and I order slow cooked pork belly which was delightful - well presented and well cooked. My son's pasta wasn't great and, although it was only pasta, tomato sauce and cheese, It lacked flavour and was overcooked. I would like to suggest that diners are told that a band will be setting up, especially when folk are trying... More

The Driftwood Spars public house is located at the end of a dead end road that leads from the village of St Agnes down to the sea at Trevaunance Cove, where many years ago there was once an industrial harbour. Free parking is available opposite the pub if you give the bar staff your car registration number when ordering. There... More

Met up with friends for lunch, busy time, wedding going on , ramblers group - but all good. Think the meals have improved. My ploughmans was lovely - the tomato soup delicious. Great place which we always look forward to walking to from perranporth. Worth the ups and downs of the coastal path. Nice new toilets too.

We walked across from Perranporth to St Agnes across the cliffs and arrived at 4.30pm on a Sunday. They served a delicious starter of baked Cornish Brie (my husband had the pork terrine which he argues was as delectable as mine) and had the gammon roast and beef roast for a main. Both were excellent and the veggies on the... More

Had a great meal. Food was of a high quality and the children's meal was a decent sized portion. It was good we booked as it was very busy. Would recommend if in St Agnes cove.

After an initial stutter about our booking, resulting in having to be found a suitable table, the service and the food was excellent and very good value. All of our party of seven left feeling well fed and well looked after even though it seemed to be very busy. Thanks.

Had heard good things about this place. Food is edible but not great. Shop bought coleslaw and tartare sauce. Whitebait was cooked in very old oil and as such was awful. Very expensive for cheap bar food. Location and ambiance were great and dogs are welcome. Just eat somewhere else.

Thank Tony M
