The Mariners pub in Rock, Cornwall, which looks out on to the Camel Estuary,
re-opened on Thursday 16th May, 2019 with a new menu and interiors.
Husband and wife duo Paul and Emma Ainsworth took over the historic pub from fellow chef, Nathan Outlaw, after five successful years of trading. There's a new menu and stylish interiors to match with beer provided by Sharp's Brewery.
The Mariners is open daily, offering a breakfast, cream tea and all-day menu. It's the ideal choice for an informal pre-wedding dinner, a hen party celebration, or even an intimate post-vow dinner. 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. The all-day menu, available from noon until 9.30pm, will offer a wide range of pub favourites which demonstrate Ainsworth's notable and renowned creative flair. Large plates will include Battered Cornish haddock with triple cooked chips, Cornish Thornback ray wing with potted shrimp butter, and a Goan chicken curry with braised rice, kachumba and homemade naan bread. There'll also be a blackboard of daily specials, side dishes and a children's menu available.
Those looking for something lighter can choose from the small plates, salads and sandwiches including Cornish rarebit on toast, crispy king prawns with red chilli and seaweed mayonnaise, and buttermilk chicken with garam masala and chipotle mayonnaise.
There's also a selection of homemade pies prepared daily including aged beef dripping pudding with a Porthilly oyster and red wine gravy. The menu's 'From the Ox' section will feature items cooked over a charcoal barbecue such as The Mariners' burger with smoked bacon and Davidstow cheddar and a Cornish cured bacon chop served with soy glazed pineapple and a fried St Ewe's egg to finish.
On Sundays, a traditional beef roast will be available for lunch with alternative options such as chicken, lamb and pork varying weekly.
At the bar, guests can expect to find a selection of Sharp's Brewery's signature draughts including their Doom Bar Amber Ale, Atlantic Cask Pale Ale and Wolf Rock Red IPA. Bottled options will include Aspall Premier Cru Cider, Sea Fury, an alcohol-free Cobra Zero and, for those wanting something a little special, the Camel Valley Pilsner, a local champagne lager also by Sharp's Brewery. Other speciality beers will include Blue Moon Belgian
The pub's new interiors have been led by Emma Ainsworth, renowned designer Eve Cullen-Cornes and design company, Concord Interiors, with the aim of creating a warm and welcoming environment. Oak panelling has been introduced to give The Mariners a classic pub feel, as well as new bars on both floors. The colour palette across both floors features accents of warm reds, coppers, deep blues and greens which are complemented by stunning papered finishes. Bespoke antique lamps and light fittings have been restored to create an intimately lit drinking and dining space.
Chef Proprietor, Paul Ainsworth commented: “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.”
