The Dish

“Fish and chips”, (££)

Mermaid Fish Bar in Moreton-in-Marsh provides a satisfying fish and chip experience in a charming setting. With its quality fish and tasty chips, it offers a reliable option for locals and tourists alike.

OUR VERDICT – 3.5 Stars

Located in the picturesque town of Moreton-in-Marsh, Mermaid Fish Bar offers a pleasant experience for fish and chip enthusiasts. While it may not stand out as an exceptional dish, it provides a satisfactory meal that won’t disappoint.

When it comes to the star of the show, Mermaid Fish Bar mainly delivers on providing a quality meal. The fish fillets are fresh and flaky. The light and crispy batter encasing the fish adds a satisfying texture, providing a good balance between crunch and tenderness.

The chips are well-seasoned and have a gentle crispiness with a soft interior. Portion sizes are incredibly generous, so much so that sometimes one is unable to finish their dish! On occasion, the consistency can vary, with some chips lacking crispness.

In addition to the classic fish and chips, Mermaid Fish Bar offers a range of extras and other dishes, from mushy peas to pies.

The service is friendly but it’s worth noting that the Mermaid Fish Bar gets very busy with locals and visitors during peak hours so expect a small wait upon arrival. There are no seating arrangements on-site, but there are several places in the town to eat outside.

Overall, Mermaid Fish Bar in Moreton-in-Marsh provides a satisfying fish and chip experience in a charming setting. With its quality fish and tasty chips, it offers a reliable and cheap option for locals and tourists alike. Although there may be occasional waiting times, it remains a solid choice for a traditional fish and chip meal in this scenic town.
