Our recently refurbished Smithy is available to hire for private functions and events. A perfect spot in all seasons: The Smithy is light and airy during the warmer months and cozy by the roaring fire during the cooler seasons.

We can cater for most events including wedding receptions, birthday celebrations, anniversaries, leaving parties and wakes and offer a wide range of food and beverage options to suit all budgets and needs.

The Smithy has a capacity of roughly 55 people standing or for an informal buffet and up to 20 or so for a sit down meal from our main menu.
By hiring The Smithy you are ensuring that you have your very own space for the duration of your event right next door to our bustling pub and well stocked bar. The options for your event are endless: You may decorate the space as you wish, hire your own entertainment to create an atmosphere that suits the vibe of your event, choose either one of our mouth-watering catering options or bring in catering from another fantastic local supplier, and have access to our full drinks offerings including the incredible range of well-kept local ales, ciders and lagers on draught in our traditional Cornish harbourside pub.

The Smithy is available from 11am until 11 pm Monday to Sunday year round (excluding Christmas Day and Porthleven Food Festival).

Standalone venue hire of The Smithy for half a day is £150 (between 11 am – 5 pm or 5pm – 11 pm) or if you wish us to cater for your event the venue hire fee is waived.
We can offer a varied range of catering options for your event including: a range of buffet options, a ‘hot pot’ of your choice served with Ship-made sides or your choice of offerings from our seasonal main menu (for parties of 20 or less)
