Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

The Mermaid in Ipswich is a great place to stay and a great place to eat. We’re all about family and food, with plenty of choice to keep everybody happy. Our lodge accommodation boasts digital television, free Wi-Fi, and en-suite bathrooms. Our complimentary breakfast is served daily, both cooked and continental. 

You don’t have to book a room to enjoy our fabulous food. Our daily carvery offers a choice of three delicious meats, temptingly displayed alongside seasonal vegetables and your choice of mash or roast potatoes. Our extensive menu is packed full of pub classics, indulgent puddings, and tasty sides. Everyone will be wowed by our cake display, filled with irresistible giant desserts, perfectly accompanied by our Nescafé Milano coffee range. You won’t be disappointed by our bar, either.

No pub is complete without a great beer garden, and we’re pretty proud of ours. Our alfresco dining area is the perfect place to enjoy a cold pint or a nice glass of wine on a hot day. Let the little ones enjoy the play park while you relax, or if it’s a dreary day, we have an indoor toddlers’ play area. The Mermaid prides itself on being one of the most family-friendly pubs in Ipswich. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

About our food

Our food is full of flavour, created and served by chefs who love what they do. We believe that great tastes should be at the heart of every meal, and we strive to bring you a menu that reflects the preferences of the whole family. From traditional roasts, to more modern options, healthy eaters to vegetarians, there’s plenty on our menu to satisfy everyone.


All of our ingredients are ethically sourced: like our Red Tractor farm-assured chicken and our responsibly-caught cod and haddock. And we don’t just sit on our laurels. Behind the scenes, we’re constantly checking and refining our ingredients to ensure everyone gets the best flavour, the best nutrition, and the most-socially-responsible meals possible.
