The Mermaid Tavern


Originally a fisherman’s pub, the Mermaid Tavern is really at the heart of island life, a popular venue all year round offering an informal atmosphere. It gained its name after an old cargo vessel used a long time ago to bring supplies over to Herm. Good value pub meals can be enjoyed either inside or outside. There is a large courtyard with picnic style benches, and the tavern hosts Ale and Cider festivals a few times a year.

The Black Rock Grill restaurant is situated in the courtyard area, and is a new popular addition, allowing diners to cook their meal just the way they like it at the table. The black volcanic cooking stone is heated to 440 degrees and you can cook your choice of meat or fish.

No trip to Herm wouldbe complete without a visit to The Mermaid!
