The great thing about being a Londoner is trying out pubs you are proud off and of course some that you are not. The Mayflower is an old pub that plays on and quite rightly its working class past. The pub therefore tends to be suited to the far more well off and not really a local pub as such.... More

Love this pub! It ticks all the boxes – good food, large selections of ales, stunning views and a relaxed atmosphere. The place has become a regular for me and when I have guests visiting London I bring them here. It never disappoints!

Starting with the positives, the food and drink was good and reasonably priced, The pub was also clean. However on the negative side service was very chaotic and as such the serving staff, who seemed to be doing their best appeared rather stressed. We had to remind them about our food order twice as people who had arrived and ordered... More

It is many years since I last went to the pub, so it was a delight to find the inside looking much the same. It has great history surrounding it. The food was very good and our granchildren enjoyed their fish and chips sitting outside on the verandah right on top of The Thames. The choice of Real Ales was... More

We had a lovely Sunday roast here, in their upstairs restaurant, with a choice of beef, lamb, chicken or pork. I chose the beef, my partner chose the chicken. The beef was a bit chewy but the chicken was very tasty and moist and in itself enough for two! Together with a bottle of burgundy, it was a lovely way... More

While on a Thames boat ride we learned of the The Mayflower Pub which apparently is located at the mooring of the original ship (or something like that!) Anyway we made our way there to find a piece of Americana in London. It was a delightful little pub that sells US stamps and flies the American flag.

Been here twice recently, so you get photos of multiple dishes! First up, Spatchcock Chicken with Tabouli Salad. Was average, Tabouli I do like but not so much on this dish. Second meal was 'pie of the day', of which there were like 5 choices (including vegetarian!). I took chicken & mushroom, it was delicious. Good selection of drinks as... More

Great historic pub, one if the oldest in London right alongside the Thames. The outside deck is a great spot built out over the river. Try the traditional Fish and Chips with mushy peas and wash it down with one of their many fine beers. Tuesday night is quiz night so you might end up joining a team to compete.... More

This elderly pub has been well cared for and it brings out its tradition and contested place in American and British maritime history subtly and with some charm. The location on the banks of the Thames is extremely pleasant and lapping and slapping of the beneath your feet on the raised jetty creates an enjoyable atmosphere throughout the summer. The... More
