Hugh Town Pub Applying For Roof Terrace

The Mermaid Inn

Outdoor drinking with a view may be on the cards next season if planners approve a roof terrace for the Mermaid Inn.

Britain’s biggest pub chain, Punch Taverns, who lease out the pub, has applied for consent to add the upstairs, outdoor deck overlooking St Mary’s harbour.

They want to build a staircase in a pitched roof extension with a seating area on top of the flat roof that extends out from the back of the pub, parallel to the quay access roadway. There would be guardrails around the side of the roof.

The exterior work will be part of the refurbishment, which the applicant says is needed to revitalise the interior and sustain tourism.

In their application, they refer to the Atlantic Hotel, which also has a roof area and the plans for another outdoor terrace as part of the Harbourside Hotel refurbishment.

Planners will discuss the application on January 22nd.
