You know, Waiting less than '10 minutes' before walking out, and not being personally greeted at the door, doesn't really merit 'terrible' judgement. Unless your well-travelled stomach and impulsive manner has got used to visiting foreign climes where every establishment drops everything, immediately as you arrive, you'll probably like The Mayflower. Had 'micra03' waited a couple more minutes, got served,... More

Lovely pub, overlooking the River Thames. Best to reserve in advance, given that,the bar, on Saturday night , is always packed. The bar has two floors and it's precisely as you would expect from a typical English Pub. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food tasty and properly accompanied with a fresh beer. I would have no doubts to... More

During a London Walk's tour of this area last year the guide mentioned the mayflower pub on the docks near the church where the pilgrims set off for America and many Americans come to visit the church and have lunch in the pub. Well, you would be better off bringing your airline food and sitting in the church grounds. No... More

Fine view of the Thames, pity the guardrail is so high as it does block the view from the outdoor tables, also people sitting on stools at the guardrail have a detrimental effect on the view. Serves a great line in soggy pies on Sundays, how do you make a pie soggy?

We stopped here for a couple of drinks when visiting a couple of sites in the area. The pub is a genuine historical pub and it has retained the look and feel of what I would guess it was like 200 or so years ago. We were there on a Friday night so it was quite busy and we could... More

OK – so we were in a party of about 40 and we had only given about two weeks’ notice of our choice of lunch from their good menu, but that was no excuse for a wait of about 45 minutes before any of us was eating – after all, we had arrived on time as booked. The food I... More

An old favourite of a family member who lives locally, but why wasn't I asked to go before? Wonderful atmosphere and views combined with very friendly service and child friendly staff make this a must for anyone visiting this part of London [Brunel museum across the road also deserves a visit]. Wander round the back streets for a whiff of... More

Don't be fooled into thinking it takes ages to get to Rotherhithe - with the new(isn) East London overland you can be there in no time at all and the pub is only a few minutes walk from the station. You can also visit the Brunel Museum next door which means you can have a second excuse to visit the... More

A lovely British pub selling a good selection of wines and ales including regular guest ales to sample, served by friendly staff. The food is good and consistent in standard, with regular changes to menus to adjust to seasons etc. as a very popular pub sometimes when very busy food service can be slow but the standard does not drop.....

British pub-food is a marvel. This pub offers the good food and a very nice view over the Thames River.
