Been coming to this restaurant now for quite some time and i just cant fault it !
It is by far the best Indian restaurant in the area i know because we have tried them all and the mermaid is just that bit better!.
The Staff are awesome friendly and treat you like family the minute you walk in the door! every time we go we book and every time we get into the restaurant it is always very busy! a sign that it is obviously doing well!.
They run a buffet style service which is great value and there menu is stacked with choice.
The deserts are without question the best i have ever had in any Indian restaurant not your usual tasteless banana and icecream.
Will be going back very soon for another great meal with friends!

We have now eaten in this restaurant a number of times and the service and food just seems to get better and better.

The service is always very friendly and the food top notch.

Highly recommended.

But suggest you book ahead as its reputation is spreading fast....

Took my fiancé and mother in law for a Mother's Day meal. We were greeted with a warm welcome and things only got better from there on. Food was delicious. Went for the buffet so we could taste all dishes and every single was one very tasty. Combination of fantastic service and great food is a recipe for success. Would definitely go back again.

Thank you

My partner and I thought we had been to the best Indian Restaurant we could find in the area - but that was before we went to The Mermaid and how wrong were we!! The Mermaid Balti House food is simply exquisite, starting right from the poppadoms which are the lightest and freshest we have ever tasted, through to the excellent quality of wine offered. This is a restaurant that must not be missed!! Even the seating arrangement is perfect and the ambiance similarly so. What a great conversion from a general public house to an awesome Indian Restaurant.

If you visit this excellent Indian Restaurant tucked away in the last place you would ever expect to find an Indian Restaurant PLEASE keep it to yourself. don't; go writing a review on Trip Advisor. Keep it our secret.
We started visiting when it first opened last year and have found the food to be consistently excellent. all meals are freshly prepared and that can occasionally lead to a bit of a wait when the place is rocking. And Rock it does on a Friday and Saturday evening. It's packed. We prefer it on quieter nights - having said that even Monday evening was lively.
The management and staff are very attentive and noting is too much trouble.
Do take a look at the desserts menu. It is definitely not the traditional Indian selection of blocks of ice and fruit based tasteless tatt taken straight from the freezer an popped into a specially shaped ceramic or plastic container. These are proper desserts.
The ambiance and atmosphere is a delightful combination of country pub and modern Indian restaurant. Toilets are really impressive and there is a lovely wardrobe to put coats in!
