Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

The Fickle Mermaid is a memorable name inspired by the myth of the mermaid’s pool on the side of Kinder Scout. Legend has it that long ago, a beautiful mermaid used to lure men to her mysterious pool and either make them immortal or end their lives. Come to our pub, pull up a pew, and one of our locals may well tell you the tale over a pint of real ale and a plate of superb pub food. Sit indoors or out in the beer garden; as we are right on the doorstep of the Peak District, the views are stunning and the country air wonderfully fresh and invigorating.

We have a real log fire, which gives the dining room a wonderful glow in winter. Charming vintage touches give us the look and feel of an archetypal country pub. Friendly staff and delicious food.

The pub menu has a perfect balance of traditional and modern meals. Rotisserie chicken is seasoned by hand every day and gently roasted to achieve that magically delicious combination of tenderness and crispiness. You’ll find plenty more besides chicken on the menu, and our children’s menu has pared down versions of the rotisserie chicken dishes, plus classic dinners.

About Our Food

Dishes are always freshly prepared using quality ingredients; like our Red Tractor farm-assured chicken, our responsibly-fished cod and haddock and the langoustine tails in our golden Whitby scampi that are fished in UK waters.

Book a table for a special occasion, or call in for a week day treat. Our pub is suitable for every occasion when you can be sure you’ll have the best pies, burgers, steaks and curries as well as our signature rotisserie chicken on offer. You’ll also find exclusive dishes created by our chefs in our annual Chef of the Year competition.
