A bit of a north coast institution with breath-taking views, guests can dine in either the restaurant or more traditional pub, complete with three bars and real fire. There are two beer gardens to enjoy in the summer, one of which is right next to the South West Coast Path, making it a handy stop off for an en route pint or bite to eat.
The modern restaurant upstairs has a got a nice light and airy feel. Whenever we've eaten here, the food has been consistently good and well-presented. I'd especially recommend the local seafood dishes. Downstairs is good for settling in for a few pints in front of the fire - the old timber beams, ship wheels, ropes and old photographs make it feel like a cosy smugglers den.
Good Live Music
Great place to see local live bands on Friday and Saturday nights all year round! Always a good atmosphere and friendly staff! Park your car in their car-park for a day at the beach and get a refund when you order food in the restaurant!
St Agnes’ pride and joy, Trevaunance Cove boasts the dramatic aesthetics typical of Cornwall’s north coast. Soaring cliffs and golden sands are complemented by a labyrinth of caves and the almighty Atlantic lapping at its shores. Popular amongst families and sport-lovers alike, Trevaunance Cove is not one to forget.
This stunning walk will take you along the coastal path around St Agnes Head. En-route you will pass Wheal Coates Engine House and then climb up the Beacon for a panoramic view from St Ives to Newquay.
St Agnes lies in the heart of Cornwall’s mining heritage; all along the coast here you’ll see old mining engine houses rising from the cliffs. The steep and narrow streets here are lined with almost unbearably quaint, higgledy-piggledy cottages.
Beautiful little town.
A beautiful town with very friendly people, great fish and chips and perfect location for accessing the nearby beach.
Especially recommend the lovely ladies in the flower shop.
Say Perranporth to anyone from Cornwall and they will immediately know where you mean. A popular family-friendly beach on the edge of Perranporth town, Perranporth Beach is a huge three-mile belt of golden sand meeting an expanse of blue sea. A hit amongst all ages, Perranporth appeals to all, from sports enthusiasts looking to hit the waves to sun-lovers ready to kick back in the sand. A natural sea pool by Chapel Rock means that everyone of all abilities can enjoy the water and lifeguards are on duty in the summer. Dogs on leads are allowed year-round and all facilities are available nearby.
Lovely beach, if you walk a bit further round its less busy and loads of room for the kids to run around. The only problem we occurred was some people not controlling their dogs, mind the majority were well behaved.
A good sandy beach and great for body boarding. Has all the amenities and we were able to hire wetsuits and body boards which was very handy.
This beach s a wonderful place for all ages. Kids have lots of beach to run and play , adults will love the surf and there is also a volley ball court. The Watering Hole is a must for good food and drink and is right on the beach! Thoroughly recommend it.
Great Beach. Good access. Kids loved it.Ended the day with Nacho's and beers at The Watering Hole
Beautiful beach. Wide open spaces. Perfect for walking, horse riding and watching watersports.
This beach and the surrounding area are great! If you don't fancy getting your feet covered in sand then the benches and grass areas overlooking the beach are great to sit and have a picnic. Would definitely recommend a visit!
Superb for the Family
This is a great beach the whole family can enjoy. Three miles of sand. Great for surfing, sandcastle building, lifeguarded swimming areas and easy access to nearby facilities including plenty of places to hire or buy a wetsuit. Can get crowded on sunny days in the summer.
On windy days the nearby Trevaunance Cove (South) or Holywell (North) can often be more sheltered.
Dogs can be walked on the beach here year round.
Nudists from Army Camp lurk at the far North End.
This light and airy bistro style restaurant offers delightful menus using the finest local produce. Whether it's a light lunch, evening meal or Sunday roast you are seeking, they are sure not to disappoint!
We had an excellent meal at Taste, with good service and a varied (mainly seafood) menu.The price was reasonable for the quality of food received and there was a nice ambience.
This delightful little restaurant is a gem, we were really warmly welcomed in by the very attentive waitress. It only seats around 25 people, which adds to its appeal for me, it's beautifully decorated in a contemporary style. We called in for lunch - and were not disappointed with the freshly made crab sandwiches we indulged in! I would definitely visit again - maybe next time for dinner, the menu sounded lovely and all the food that was brought out looked fabulous, very reasonably priced too! Be sure to make a booking as my guess is they get quite busy!

I've been fortunate enough to have several trips out with Coastal Rush. The beauty of the hidden coastline and the massive adrenalin rush experienced never fails to amaze me.
This community hub is open for light refreshments in the cafe during the day, they also have a bar which is open to the public.
Lottery funded community club
We found this place on our last day and hadn't realised it was open to the public!!..The bar prices were one of the cheapest in St Agnes if not the cheapest..Friendly locals..Great atmosphere...And dog friendly too which is always a bonus plus it has wheelchair access.
This welcoming pub offers a warm welcome to all - assisted by a wood burning stove in the winter months! They have many special deals throughout the week if you are planning to eat out - check their website for more information.
