Take a Tour of

The Ancient Mariner

The Ancient Mariner opened its doors in January 2014.  The interior follows a nautical theme and features a nine-metre-long hand-painted mural of an armada of ships, Captain Cook’s original map of New Zealand, furniture made out of gnarled macrocarpa timber and generous lashings of maritime memorabilia, liberally sprinkled with sound effects reminiscent of the ocean. In contrast, the kitchen is fitted with custom-built workstations and gleaming stainless steel equipment is designed to maximise efficiency, hygiene and conversation: there is a massive porthole that gives customers a wide angle view of the galley through which the food is served.
