Whilst staying in the area we used this pub 3 times because of the variety if gluten free options. The meals were all reasonably priced compared to other pubs in the locality. Their fish and chips was huge and the Pimms was a nice summer compliment. The staff were friendly and helpful.

What a find! The gluten free fish & chips were delicious. A big piece of fish covered in crisp, crunchy batter, and the piping hot thick chips looked like they'd been freshly made (not packet frozen ones). Other meals being served looked great, too.The outside garden seating was a pleasant place to sit & enjoy our drinks & meal.The staff were friendly & attentive.Would love to visit again - shame we were holidaying from Australia.

We enjoyed the food, but we were less than impressed with how our situation was dealt with. My wife and daughter ordered a Rose that was sweet tasting and described, we asked if we could exchange it and were told we would need to either pay for another or they could give us another 1/2 glass of wine from a different varietal. Never heard of such a classless tact. To top things off we had to order at the bar and had to pre pay. Luckily the food was brought to our table though. On the good side.....they can treat traveling guests as they wish.....because we are one timers and won’t be going back!

Firstly I'm glad you enjoyed your food with us.
Most people if they are unsure about a wine would ask to taste it before ordering not buy 2 large glasses take a sip from each and then demand for it to be changed as they didn't like it
Where would we be if everyone did that.as you said you were offered 2 free 125ml glasses of a different wine as a good will gesture,
As you can see from previous reviews we care very much about customer service wether you are a local or a tourist.
It is customary in most places that if you are sitting out side you order and pay at the bar

Lovely lunch at The Mermaid Inn. I had dressed crab and avocado salad which was on their specials menu, very nice indeed. My husband had Scampi and chips which was also very well presented and tasty. We sat outside watching the world go by, but they do have a nice courtyard/ garden area which is a bit quieter, also a pleasant place to sit. Staff very friendly and smiley, highly recommended.
