Really nice pub, food 'ok'

Heard a lot about this place so booked in for Sunday lunch, advisable to book as early as you can as there were lots of people turned away whilst we were there. The pub itself is really nice. I was disappointed with the food as having heard from others and looking at the photos on here I was... read more

Situated in off-the-beaten-track Rotherhithe, you get everything in the Mayflower: History (I hear it is the oldest pub on the Thames and sits on the site where the Mayflower ship was moored); good food and drinks; lively events.

I don't really want to leave a great review because this is my local 'watering hole' and the better the reviews, the busier it get. However, praise is due. I reluctantly report that this is a really lovely little pub, the food is great - always fresh and hot, and the staff are friendly, attentive and happy to help. Charlie... More

We have dinner here from time to time and are always singing its praises. However we arrived last night just before 6pm to find that every single table in the pub was reserved. This is public house not a restaurant so you expect to take a chance if its busy but not to walk in and find empty tables waiting... More

After waking out of the place we had reserved because of completely terrible service we tried on a chance to see if they could fit us in. The guy made a great effort and got us a table. The place was brilliant and atmosphere very authentic of a very London pub of its time. The two girls who served us... More

Decided to drive down to Bermondsey to visit the old dear. I'm sure I remember this pub being in a right rundown part of Bermondsey so the first surprise was the money in the area now and how quiet it was. Not entirely pleasant. The second surprise was this boozer. No problems with finding a good table and the service... More

The chilly Sunday of the London Marathon 12 of us met to celebrate a birthday. The Mayflower was packed but this did not have any impact on the fantastic service throughout the afternoon. Before we ate we had a drink outside overlooking the Thames, the staff noticed the younger ones in our party were a little could and appeared with... More

Poppy and Banjo have a fondness for a sense of history, so with these fine evenings of late, they popped to Rotherhithe to watch twilight fall upon The City. Thankfully, not exactly riddled with Americans, The Mayflower has an aroma of quality aged beer, well-cooked fishys and an al fresco area literally over The River. Poppy and Banjo simply love...

Our Saturday booking went wrong and our slot had passed by the time we arrived but they pulled out all the stops and found us a table for four anyway. Our server was a delight - chatty, informative and efficient. Food was hot (or appropriately chilled in the case of the salad main course), attractively presented and reasonably priced for... More

Recently my wife and I spent six delightful days in London. The flight crew on American Airlines recommended and raved about “The Mayflower” pub way out on Rotherhite Street. They assured us it was worth the trip out to the historical docks areas of south east London. We did and it was! BE SURE to call ahead and make a... More
