A beautiful 17th-century countryside pub with a Michelin star-trained chef, The Mermaid at Ellington is a perfect rural eatery. Open log fires give it a cosy ambience, and the large beer garden has views of the village church.

Fresh, local produce is at the heart of The Mermaid at Ellington menu, with dishes such as Ellington pigeon breast served with parsnip gratin, turned turnips, shallot lyonaisse and tarragon jus. There is fresh seafood, like the signature dish of soft shell crab with soy, crisp chilli, ginger and spring onion salad. Bold international flavours can be found on the 'Culture Classics' menu, such as Spanish paella, and Caribbean blackened chicken with cilantro.

Desserts at The Mermaid at Ellington also boast innovative flavours, like the chocolate and black bean ice cream with pistachio, beetroot and quinoa crumb. There is a critically selected wine list, and exceptional selection of cask ales and premium beers.

Bringing another level of culinary flair to countryside pub dining, The Mermaid at Ellington is just 2 miles from beauty spot Grafham Water, and 11 minutes' drive from Huntingdon Rail Station.

    The service was excellent, a nice table had been reserved for us. The menu seemed limited in choice and although presented in a different and vintage form, the cooking fell short of what we had expected and did not match our previous visit.

    Good quality food but rather random service

    Lovely meal here, excellent quality, presentation and taste. Friendly attentive staff, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend a visit here.

  • ((((( 15 March 2017 by Tim Hitchin from Saint Neots

    Food was delicious, of a very high quality, and beautifully presented.
    The staff were friendly and helpful, as well as knowledgable about the menu.
    There was a gluten free menu, which barely varied from the regular one, due I would assume to the standard of the chef and the quality of the ingredients.
    The Tuesday night sirloin special was very good value, and the Malbec a delight.

    Excellent experience overall. Staff were friendly and attentive. Our children enjoyed calamari and Sunday roast beef. My partner and I both had the ox cheek appetizer and the chateaubriand and both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The small details were also well thought out from the plating to the choice of cutlery. We are excited to have found this gem!

    Love the venison with crispy kale. My mixed seafood starter was Devine and the service offered up by the friendly staff of Robert, Keri and Ann was brilliant. They are friendly and plenty of character. The wines were also excellen. The restaurant had small intimate rooms and great bar with plenty of character. Go the extra mile and give it a try. The chef knows his stuff and will give you great quality food a little different from the norm. Definitely in the Top 5 restaurants around Huntingdon Area.
