The Ancient Mariner

We are fully booked indoors for evening service

from 09.09.2020 - 20.09.2020 inclusive!

We do have outdoor tables, most of which are covered, which are available on a first come, first served basis. We are not able to pre-reserve outdoor tables. We have lots of tables available over lunch!

Please book as far in advance as you can, letting us know if you have any dietary requirements. We have unreserved, outdoor seating too (most of which is covered). Thank you!

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.

Hungry? Check out our menus, here. We fully cater for vegan and gluten free diets. We're open for BREAKFAST, LUNCH and DINNER.

”As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.”-

Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner



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 CAN'T wait until you're crammed into the bar, dancing outrageously to a well selected North Devon band. We're obviously not there yet, but we've taken a step in the right direction. Keep an eye on the news - as soon as we can book a band, by golly we will be! As a reminder, booking your table for drinks and food in advance is strongly recommended at the moment. Specific information on what to do is to be found HERE.
