“Good soup and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Toasty warm place. Lots of local atmosphere, a good bowl of soup, and a good pint. Sad to see that the old fashioned bar menu has been replaced with a more up market menus - but then we are old fogies!!

Reviewed April 7, 2013

Helpful, met requests easily, but rather expensive for pub food. (same meals along the road were £1-2 cheaper for same quality) made welcome and popular.

“Adequate but not very exciting”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The Mermaid is a busy pub near to the quay in Hugh Town. It has a great atmosphere and can get very busy. We were a large party and ate there twice. Some of the food was good and some wasn't so good. The pasta dishes were poor. Quite expensive for pub grub.

If you like pub food, this is the place to go. Plenty to eat, good value, good food, good service. Came here in a party of six including two young children. All liked it.
