The weather was appalling but the Mermaid welcome soon cast the weather blues away. We were part of a large party and extremely satisfied with a great Sunday lunch at this fine establishment. We were quickly helped in finding our seats and chose from a good varied menu, one for all tastes. The service was exemplary, the food cooked just... More

We went for a valentines meal, food was very nice, great choices and very lush! Nice and cosy friendly atmosphere Helpful staff and nice location. We have also been here on other occasions. It's very nice to be sat by the river whilst the children play

After a recent family funeral we decided to book the Mermaid for the family gathering. The buffet with tea and coffee was delicious. Very good quality food and plentiful. Highly recommend for such an occasion. The staff were friendly and efficient, the restaurant was warm and welcoming. Couldn't fault a thing. Being so close to the new Crematorium it is... More

Went with friends early evening for dinner. It wasn't busy at this time but service seemed quite slow. Ordered pork belly with pork chop which was excellent. My wife had salmon and my friends wife had steak and ale pie. Could not fault the portions although the vegetables provided were insufficient for 4 persons, but they did provide more when... More

Me and my Auntie both chose the roast beef. .....wow, perfectly cooked and perfectly sliced and presented... More

We have visited the Mermaid for years, always enjoyed ourselves but Yesterday? We are never going again. It was a lovely day but we were the only ones sitting outside. We always take our very well behaved dogs who love to run on the field. The owner told us that we had to sit with our dogs on their leads... More

I am usually content for people to pass comments re the MERMAID, as everyone has different standards, expectations, experiences, opinions and indeed budgets; however, this review from a new "well traveled" (Spalding & Surfleet in a day) reviewer needs too be commented on and its reviewer assured that I am delighted they will not be returning to the Mermaid. It... More

Spent one night here: not sure I could spend 2 nights due to sleep deprivation from noisy road that runs few feet outside letting rooms. Traffic ran intermittently all night and constantly from early hours. Even ear plugs (which Karen, the owner offers on arrival!) and windows closed made little difference- closed windows on hot night not good combination. Road... More

My husband and I spent a night here last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary as we had our reception here too. The food was fabulous as always and the staff pleasant and helpful. Our room was stunning, nicely decorated, not too fussy and spotlessly clean. The ensuite shower room was the same, with a huge shower cubicle. The bed... More
