Gazing out westwards over the rugged Atlantic coastline of North Cornwall, The Driftwood Spars in St Agnes presents a romantic, atmospheric and personal wedding venue. Snugly nestled above the scenic and popular surfing beach of Trevaunance Cove, the pub comprises various bars and function rooms, any of which might be perfect for your civil ceremony and reception celebration.

Choose from a celebration in the gorgeous dining room or a more intimate affair in the fishing loft or the library, all of which boast spectacular views of the nearby beaches. Your wedding breakfast can be tailor-made with locally-sourced ingredients, there are countless unrivalled photo-opportunities, and later on there are fifteen rooms which are ideal for wedding-night accommodation.


The pub's unusual name comes from the massive wooden spars that comprise the framework that keep it standing. These were salvaged from the many shipwrecks that occurred at regular intervals along the coast, and used in building the pub in the 1650s.

However, the building wasn't originally intended to be a pub. Over the years, it has served as a tin-mining warehouse, chandlery, a sail-making loft and a fish-cellar, before being turned into a hotel in the 20th century. It now stands as a glorious pub and B&B.


Dining Room

Above the pub itself is the lovely dining room, where wedding guests can eat and enjoy the beautiful views of the sea below. With a civil ceremony licence, it is the perfect place to host your entire celebration, and has a more modern feel than the pub beneath.

Fishing Loft

Featuring a wood-burning stove, the cosy Fishing Loft also has a civil ceremony licence and is ideal for more intimate gatherings.


Depending on the number of guests at your wedding celebration, the Library is a further alternative in which to host a ceremony.


There are no set menus at The Driftwood Spars; instead, the chefs prefer to tailor-make dishes to satisfy individual wishes. The seasonal ingredients are sourced locally, so you can be sure that your wedding breakfast will be of the finest and freshest quality.

In terms of alcoholic or other refreshments for the evening, you have the option either to pre-order drinks, or to have a cash bar.


The Driftwood Spars boasts a total of 15 AA* accommodation rooms, all of which are ensuite and some of which have sea views. They make the perfect place for you and your newlywed nearest and dearest to spend the night after celebrating your wedding!

    We had a fabulous wedding at this fantastic venue in June. Karen the wedding co-ordinater was amazing...she was calm throughout, well organised and made sure everything was done just how we wanted it.

    All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful even at its most busiest times and nothing is ever too much trouble.They each go out of their way to help. Very high quality service and food for a fair price.

    Our wedding was made special because of Driftwood and all our guests each had a wonderful time throughout the weekend we was there. Everyone was so happy with the amazing food we all had too. It couldn't have gone better.

    This will now remain a beautiful place in our hearts forever and we will visit again in the years to come. Even our dogs are always made welcome and given plenty of fuss by the lovely staff.

    We had our wedding here last Saturday and it was absolutely perfect. Even though the weather wasn’t great that didn’t stop the day from running smoothly. Karen our wedding coordinator was amazing, I didn’t have one worry with her in control and she made the day run without a glitch. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was just delicious! I can’t thank the Driftwood enough for making our wedding day even more special.
