Excellent feedback from our Director and MD - perfect venue for a business meeting

My Director had a breakfast and lunch at The Mercer on the same day and everything was to his satisfaction.

The guests cancelled lunch so the team in the office used the booking. Very pleasant surroundings. Staff very helpful. Food selection very good. Look forward to visiting again.

This is the perfect venue for the City middle manager lunching on expense account who has far more money than taste buds. Everything about The Mercer is ordinary. The decor is predictable, as if conceived on a rainy afternoon by a hotel chain decorator. You would have thought that carrying the name of the noble trade of mercers would have led at the very least to the use of interesting fabrics. No such luck. The only fabrics on display were the colour of yesterday's dung. The staff bring to service what Theresa May brings to the premiership. The food is mere sustenance. I had a smoked haddock risotto from which the haddock had inexplicably escaped. Bread consisted of a small loaf that had no discernible flavour whatsoever. As to value for money? Beyond the sheer mendacity posing as food, two small carafes of a mediocre albariño set us back by thirty seven pounds. In a search for excitement, I had a caponata as a side dish but it was as mushy as my friend's potatoes were dry.
The only consolation is that The Mercer was half empty. The customers were invariably men in suits. My own gender, sadly, can be a bit slow on the uptake. Nevertheless, the scarcity of punters may mean that The Mercer is being found out. With any luck, it will soon be replaced by something better. In itself, that will not be difficult.

Sophisticated, well thought out and well presented menu. Excellent wine list. Atmosphere lacking on a Thursday evening
