Description: We will be closed on Thursday 9th, Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Mariners (Formally Lathwells) is a Grade Two listed historic building in one of Bideford's oldest streets. The building dates back to the 1700's. History tells us it has been a Mariners house, an Inn, a sowing school, a private house and now a restaurant. Mariners is small, intimate and relaxing. The table is yours for the evening. Our food is cooked from fresh to order. We pride ourselves on seasonal fish and meat from the Bay Area as far as possible. Our menu changes often with specials featuring on a daily basis. We look forward to meeting you. Booking is strongly advisable to secure a table. We are open Wednesday - Saturday from 6.30pm. Last food orders are taken at 8.30pm.

Heading into Bideford on the first evening of our stay, the hotel recommended we try the Mariners. A very interesting place, with snippets of local historical facts and stories on the walls. The owners clearly love creating fine food, and we were treated to a lovely evening. The menu and dishes of the day were varied and everything we chose was superb. Highly recommend.

We arrived towards the end of the evening not long before closing time but we're met with a very warm welcome and we're not hurried to finish.
The food was fresh, expertly prepared and presented and reasonably priced.
We cannot speak highly enough about the owner and his staff. Whilst the food was what we went there for, the welcome and attentiveness is also vital and it made our evening.
Highly recommended.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening with delicious food and great service. Our daughter is coeliac and she had lots of choice. Loved the local gin too... only wish we'd found this restaurant at the start of our break, we'd definitely have made another visit!

A very personal restaurant run by a friendly team and a chef / owner who is passionate about his food and his customers. We have been coming for many yrs. - not as regularly as John might like - but quality and service remain constant.

Our first night in Bideford and we enjoyed a wonderful meal in this small Gastropub. Service was v friendly and prompt, and the bar has a wealth of character. I enjoyed the beef tart and roasted vegetables, and finished off with ginger cake and caramel. Yum !!
