We booked in August for a group Xmas mean of our walking group. We were expecting the upstairs room to ourselves (30 ish people). We arrived and there was another group sitting at a table right in the middle or the room. The food was average; the lamb came with a puree but no veg.; the turkey was drowned in... More

Great staff, food and atmosphere. Good understanding of gluten free requirements. Small but perfectly formed. Do book in advance as very popular.

So cool to eat in such an old building. And, the prices were excellent! I had the pie and wine dinner special--12 gbp for a glass of wine and house pie is a great deal. We all split some cheeses afterwards. Everyone was pleased with their meal. Would recommend.

Super food, hot and tasty pies with veg and mashed potatoes followed by apple crumble. Helpful staff and super view in outside heated tent. Well located near Brunel Museum and a great place from which to walk besides the Thames

Have eaten many times at the Mayflower in both its old and new incarnations, and my son and I popped in at lunchtime today expecting good but predictable pub grub. But it was good and exceptional pub grub - a hearty steak and mushroom pie for him which came with mash, roasted veggies and loads of gravy. Smoked haddock arancini... More

Beautiful local pub with a nice view on the Thames. Food is amazing with an affordable price. The decor is authentic and original. The service could be a bit more friendlier though.

Really great look, but too many reservations (couldn't sit anywhere but outside despite no one being sat inside) and staff were very rude. Really took away any feeling of an English pub :(

Right on the Thames in the district of Rotherhithe which was home to Gulliver and to the Mayflower, the pub is deservedly popular, for as well as being exactly what a pub should be in terms of atmosphere and cosiness, it has a very good selection of beers and the food is good and re3sonably priced

I can't find a website for The Mayflower Pub (but have been here twice)...there are other websites with photos and information about the pub and building.
