Paul and Emma Ainsworth have relaunched The Mariners pub in Rock, Cornwall on Thursday 16th May 2019. The 130-cover local, which looks over Cornwall’s Camel Estuary, is back open with a new menu and interiors to match. As ever, Sharp’s Brewery will continue to lead on the beer offering at The Mariners.

The Mariners will be open daily, offering a breakfast, cream tea and all-day menu. Food will be served across both floors, with the pub’s ground floor for walk-ins only and upstairs available to book. The menus, designed by Paul and joint Head Chefs, Joe Rozier and Tom Dawes will focus on British classics while championing the best of local produce.

“Emma and I are so excited to be reopening The Mariners this May.I’m lucky enough to have an amazing team at the helm, including two incredible head chefs, Joe Rozier previously at No.6 and Tom Dawes who has worked at Rojano’s in the Square for the past 7 years. The Mariners has been an institution since the 90’s and I’m so thrilled to be a part of its great history and to continue working with one of the world’s best breweries, Sharp’s. I plan on keeping this Cornish jewel a destination for the local community and holidaymakers alike and look forward to welcoming guests.”

A warm welcome awaits you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
