One of Exmoor's most unique bar and restaurants, The Ancient Mariner hosts an eclectic mix of maritime memorabilia - we're the only pub that can boast a full size torpedo as well as an octopus sculpture made by a local artist. Our bar provides choices of both locally sourced spirits, ales, lagers and wines and international favourites. We are dog friendly, family friendly, have free Wi-Fi for customers AND charging points.

Upon a painted ocean.”-

Fancy Drinks Lynmouth Exmoor Gin


Our remote location on Exmoor means that we LOVE local. In summer, we get veggies and flowers from local allotments and always use local suppliers. We've got local craft beer and cider, as well as local gin, rum and lager. We run regular events (*normally!), have a locals discount card and support local groups and clubs. 


Each Thursday we're delighted to host Lynmouth Shanty Crew, a local singing group, who treat us to traditional Sea Shanty songs. Outside the bar from about 7pm with a selection of drinks on special.
