Mermaid Fish Restaurant


Our History

Constructed as a restaurant by J Pullan & Sons Ltd in the early 1970s, the business was bought by the current owner's father in 1981 and refocused as a fish & chip restaurant with out-sales. Throughout the rest of the decade the restaurant established its reputation for high quality fish & chips and a position in the market as a destination known simply as 'The Mermaid'. In 1997, the restaurant passed from father to son and a fourth generation of fish & chip owner-operators was born.

Mr Lodge and sonThe Lodge family's pursuit of excellence in the provision of fish & chips began in the 1930s and Richard Lodge now continues the family tradition. To this end he has worked hard to secure and maintain a reliable and sustainable supply of quality fish at a fair price he can pass on to his customers. In conjunction with our Yorkshire based fish supplier, Richard has developed a working relationship with some of Iceland's largest suppliers of frozen-at-sea fish. With a limited range of natural resources, Iceland's economy is heavily dependent on the success of their fishing fleet. Accordingly they have a vested interest in maintaining healthy and sustainable fish stocks in their waters. This ethos is one which The Mermaid fully supports.
