The Mermaid is the closest pub to the quay in St Mary's - a good place for a warming drink after a windy boat ride, with real ale and local cider in the bar. If you go up the steps to the left of the bar there's a spacious dining room where you can eat in comfort and in pleasant surroundings. We ordered a number of different dishes at the Mermaid during our holiday in St Mary's, and the quality varied. On the first occasion, the prawn curry was tasty, and the serving generous, whilst the pheasant (a 'special') was chewy and inedible. When we returned, two of us had curry, but whilst it tasted as good, the portions were considerably smaller! The ice cream sundaes were very nice. In terms of price, it was mid range.
