Please note; we are not accepting walk-ins for evening meals after 6:30pm, between the 23rd and 29th of August due to an unprecedented number of bookings, and staff shortages. We are sorry for any inconvenience. 

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 exceptionally well stocked bar provides unrivaled choice of both locally sourced spirits, ales, lagers and wines and international favourites. We are dog friendly, family friendly, have free Wifi for customers AND charging points.

You lucky ducks.

”As idle as a painted ship
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. 


We're super glad to be opening on the 14th of May 2021! We've missed you!
There will be some changes - including lots of exciting new dishes prepared in our very sexy new kitchen! Keep your eyes peeled on our social pages for more info!
