The Mermaid was originally two houses, knocked into one in 1910. The property was acquired by the vendor in 2010 and extensively renovated since.
The internal trading area incorporates a bar and restaurant. The latter seats c. 50 and each side of the wooden bar servery 20 (based on pre COVID-19 seating arrangements).
The excellent commercial kitchen (which serves approximately 22,000 meals per year) is well-appointed and benefits from a number of ancillary prep/washing up spaces. Male & female toilets are also situated on the ground floor with the beer cellar at basement level.
The first floor provides four double en-suite rooms, office, a sitting room and two further double rooms that share one shower room.
The extensive gardens include a patio stretching the full length of the waterside of the property. This is all hard landscaped with attractive seating areas and thatched outside bar, large car park, outside toilets and a storage garage currently being used as a joinery shop. There are two access gates to the river, the main one via steps onto a floating landing stage that ties four boats.
The area of the site is 0.75 acres. The ground floor footprint (GEA) of the main pub building extends to 314m² (3,380ft²).
Measurements are taken from digital mapping and are approximate.
We are advised by South Holland District Council that the outlet is not Listed nor is it situated within a Conservation Area. Purchasers are recommended to make their own enquiries.
