The Ancient Mariner

The Ancient Mariner

We totally believe The Ancient Mariner is a fish and chip shop like no other: nowhere else will you consistently get the same awesome quality of food served in specially designed paper cartons that keep the heat in and let the steam out, where the décor and attention to detail are a continuous source of awe to the punters and where our greeting "Hi, How are ya?" is a question we ask because we are genuinely interested in your answer.


We're determined to wipe out the bad rap that fish and chips have been given as "greasy, unhealthy" food and are passionate about giving people a taste of what it should really be like. We offer a range of char grilled burgers, salad and grilled seafood and all our deep frying is done in rice bran oil, considered one of the world's healthiest edible oils. Plus, our frying techniques have been perfected by nearly a decade of experience in the business. Our spuds travel a short distance from Pukekohe and there are plenty of fish in them seas, so we don't see why you should pay through your nose for any of it, to be honest.


We opened the shop on New Year's Day 2014 and people can't stop raving. With good reason: we chip the spuds every morning, the fish is delivered fresh from the market everyday and all the menu items are either home-made by us or sourced locally.
We offer a bit of seating so you can rip into your steaming hot fresh fish and chips with the sounds of the sea playing in the background....yep, we've brought the beach to Mt Eden...or you can order your food to go. We do a range of Gluten Free items too.

We look forward to seeing you on board The Ancient Mariner. It's Kiwi As, any way you look at it.
