We were specifically looking for a good Sunday Roast in a quirky, "real" pub (i.e not gastro pub with magnolia walls) with character, with friendly service...and so chose to avoid the other bigger places in Sandwich - the Mermaids locker was exactly what I hoped for and more. All three of us (me, my boyfriend and dad) went for the... More

This is a lovely place for a relaxed evening meal; food is very very good indeed and a short fresh every day menu. Chef Gavin can certainly cook. Also there is a choice of local craft beers, craft gins and a small but good wine list. Log burner and comfy seats , btu proper tables to sit at for dining

Had a fabulous meal here. Lovely surroundings, great beer and very good value. A really good place to send an evening. If you are eating you will need to book as it gets busy.

His wife was also there to show us around this amazing building it has such character and charm. Lovely beers and cider and he produced for us an amazing... More

Now a micro pub with a good selection of well kept beers and cider. Food is cooked on the premises by the owner who is a very experience chef with lots of great twists on things.

The newly re-opened mermaids locker is fantastic. Really well priced drink and food, with quality to boot. After eating and drinking there three days in a row it's one of our new favourite places in sandwich. I would 100% say book for the Sunday roast, it's bloody great.

Recently converted into a micro pub which has worked really well. The mango cider is a must have! Me and my partner have become regulars as the menu is ever changing and always exceptional. Due to the smaller work force there is sometimes a little wait but everything is cooked fresh to order and tastes amazing. Definitely a spot not... More

No longer a café but a little brew pub with great value for money - good draught ale and pretty drinkable vino. Food is beginning to take a more important role but we haven't tried it. Visit and enjoy. (The toffee apple cider is immense)

Lovely little place, ingredients are good quality and service is very personal and attentive. Great range from breakfasts to main meals or just tea/coffee. Went there 3 times for breakfast in our week away.
