About the Pub

A regular entrant in CAMRA's Good Beer Guide, this former 17th-century mine warehouse and sail loft is now a vibrant brewpub and B&B. The pub is built of granite, slate and enormous ships' spars, hence the name. The 3-bar interior with beamed ceilings, lead light windows and granite fireplaces is cosy and atmospheric. D├ęcor is nautical, with a fine collection of ships' clocks; a 'wreckers' tunnel' is also visible. The pub is warm and welcoming, and popular with locals and tourists alike, with easy access to cliff walks and surfing. Three or four ever-changing Driftwood brews from the pub's own microbrewery are usually available among the 6 real ales on offer. Meals are prepared from an imaginative menu, and a separate restaurant upstairs with bar and sea view has an adjoining sun terrace and lift access. Beer festivals are held every March and May, as well as an annual Oktoberfest. Entertainment includes music at weekends, and even occasional live theatre. Buses are 15min walk away at Peterville.
