We ordered 2 standard fish which arrived coated in a thick batter we soon found out why. Once through the batter... More

We have to visit Morley quite a lot and have sometimes gone to get a quick tea here. I must say the place is getting far too expensive and the staff are miserable and rude. The closing times state on the board outside that the are open till 8pm yet we were turned away at 7.0pm last Monday. The member... More

I meet here with colleagues 3 or 4 times a year and yesterday was the first time for around 3 months. The food as usual was good and the service swift enough, but it seemed much quieter than usual. The change in the menu must be something to do with this, prices are now much higher and at £27 for... More

We arrived at the restaurant at half 5 with our meals pre-ordered, at qtr past 7 we finally got our meals! The service was appalling, the restaurant got busier once we sat down and the people who had just come in were getting their meals minutes after sitting down and ordering while we just watched the miserable waitresses walk past...

We go to the Mermaid once a week and have the senior citizens lunch, fish, chips, tea, bread and butter and a sweet, 19pounds for both of us, which I think is very reasonable.Beautiful white flaky Haddock, lovely chips and a choice of sweets. Well worth it. You want nice food , then go to the Mermaid, Beautiful.

Went there yesterday as we didn't want to drive too far. They prices have gone up, and you can't just order fish and chips with tea, bread and butter now, they are all individually priced. The menu is confusing and too expensive for what it its. The fish isn't that great anyway, usually odd shaped cuts rather than a full... More

I live in Morley so "The Mermaid" has always been a bit of an institution. However, the new pricing scheme makes it a bit too expensive for a return trip anytime soon...

I cannot review the food as we did not stay seated for long enough to order anything, so I have given an average rating. When we saw the prices, we realised why the place was only half full. £10 for fish and chips, or £11 for a bigger fish is enough, but we would probably begrudgingly have paid it, however,... More
