The Ancient Mariner

We are very sadly closed. We are (safely and in line with current guidance) having a planned kitchen refit completed. We can't WAIT to welcome you all back as soon as it is safe to do so. We'll keep you posted! Stay well, from all at The Ancient Mariner.

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.”-

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. 


Get your thinking caps on; fancy dress Halloween B Movies is here! Pick a hilarious horror film (See The Mangle; Sharknado; Plan 9 From Outer Space etc) come and enjoy a delicious set menu, and cocktails, in a great setting - who else can have Halloween dinner with the Kraken bursting out of the wall?!
