Away from the crowd yet still in the heart of Douglas, HQ Bar and Restaurant situated within the Mereside Guest House is equally popular with both visitors and locals. Once you come and discover it for yourself, you’ll find out why. Our unusual name stems from the fact that the rooms functioned as army headquarters for the Central Promenade Internment Camps and Mailrooms during the Second World War.

The light, spacious interior now bears no traces of its former military purpose however a display of old prints give a sense of history. HQ is simply but stylishly furnished and just as suitable for a quiet night out in the week as it is for a very special occasion.

Full of character and charm, it’s not hard to see why so many people have made us their ‘HQ.’ Our bar is fully licensed and well-stocked with wines, spirits, liqueurs, bottled beers and draught beers. As proud supporters of CAMRA we always have a local Real Ale on tap. HQ is proud to have stocked beers from all four of our islands breweries, Okells, Bushy’s, Old Laxey Brewing Company and Doghouse Brewery. Our restaurant has built an excellent reputation for traditional food, freshly prepared with the finest ingredients.

Seafood and seasonal fish are a speciality, as are steaks which are cooked to exact customer preference. We insist on homemade chips and only the freshest of vegetables. What’s more, there are several wickedly tasty desserts to choose from if you’re feeling indulgent. For delicious food and drink and a warm, welcoming atmosphere, HQ won’t fail to satisfy.
