Mermaid Tavern & Courtyard
The Mermaid Tavern was named after an old cargo vessel used many years ago to carry supplies to the island. Originally a fisherman’s pub, The Mermaid Tavern’s cheerful, informal atmosphere is popular all year round, especially during the busy summer months when customers can sit out in the courtyard to enjoy a drink in the sun. Come rain or shine the tavern is great for hearty pub meals enjoyed either out in the courtyard or inside the pub next to a roaring fire.
Also set in the courtyard is a small grocery shop which stocks essential provisions for holiday-makers and islanders alike.
The Chef’s Theatre Dining area is also located here. The Mermaid Tavern & Courtyard area has become the social centre of the island.
