Two unique venues in Universal Marina - Coffee & Cake Shop | Relaxed riverside dining lounge bar

Mermaids At Universal

Mermaids Lounge & Bar

Nestled away on the banks of the River Hamble, along the footpath between Swanwick and Warsash, Mermaids Lounge is located in Universal Marina. We welcome everyone at Mermaids, so whether you are catching up with friends for a long lazy lunch, popping in for breakfast on your daily dog walk or stopping to refuel with your family whilst walking the Riverside path you will find a warm relaxed reception awaits.

We offer a relaxed informal dining lounge with bar where you can choose from our all day menu.  From brunch to lunch to dinner (from April onwards), our relaxed family focused approach makes Mermaids a place to enjoy fresh cooked food made with quality local ingredients.  

What we serve 

Our menu is based around seasonal local ingredients, with every one of our dishes prepared from scratch in our 5-star food hygiene rated kitchen, by our talented chefs – from the very simplest to most expensive dish, everything we serve is made with the same love and care.  The menu changes frequently depending on the very best seasonal ingredients we can source, a sample menu can be downloaded here.  We also fire up our pizza oven on weekends and you can download a sample pizza menu here.

To accompany our food we serve Lavazza coffee as well as Teapig teas, Kokoa Collection and Cadbury hot chocolates that can also be found in our coffee shop, an extensive range of soft drinks, alongside a selection of draft beers, wine, spirits and cocktails to be enjoyed throughout the year.   As so many of our guests walk to us during the day we don’t currently accept reservations, but we will always do our best to help you find a seat on arrival.

Great place to stop on a walk along the hamble river. They serve good coffee, homemade cake (yummy brownies) and a good selection of quick bites.

You can lose an afternoon very easily here drinking fine tea and coffee. It’s cosy and relaxing with lovely staff and service with a smile. I highly recommend Mermaids and I’ll be back again very soon.
