Food and Drink at The Ancient Mariner


Overlooking the harbour in the picturesque village of Lynmouth, The Ancient Mariner bar and restaurant was named after the famous Coleridge poem 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. Lynmouth is the final stop on the Coleridge Way, a 51 mile walk through stunningly beautiful scenery over Exmoor.

The bar (along with the hotel) has been owned by the same family since 1951 and has now been transformed into a truly individual place to eat, drink and relax with friends & family.

Quench your thirst 


Here at The Ancient Mariner we feel it's very important to support local suppliers and so we stock many local ales, beers, ciders, guest ales, organic juices and 'Wicked Wolf', our famous locally crafted gin made on the banks of the river Lyn, a stone's throw away.

So whether you need a morning coffee 'pick me up', leisurely drink or to refuel after a hike over the moor there will always be a warm welcome, enticing food and drink for you to try.
