“Lovely staff, food and cocktails!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

The food here is lovely and the cocktails are even better!! I like that it is a little different from the other restarants in the establishment but still has the famous favourite (Chilli Chicken Penne Pasta) for those who are a little less into the seafood options. I would highly recommend the Sea Bass as a main! YUM!

I have visited many times since The Mermaid opened and the staff here have always been brilliant, helpful and seem to know the menu well when asked questions. The blonde lady who seems to be the manager is LOVELY! She always has a smile on her face and always says thank you when you leave! She needs to teach the managers downstairs a thing or two on customer service and how to treat customers.

Well done Mermaid.

“Seafood heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Superb menu with a seafood slant. Quirky new England/sea side decor. Hold out for bench overlooking the chefs' area and don't be afraid to ask their advice and for a little taste of everything!

“Tried and failed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

I tried to book for a group of local business people (14) and was told that the largest group they would cater for was 8. I suggested two tables but they were not that flexible.
