Having travelled down from Leeds to see friends, we wanted to find a quirky little back street pub that we love when we visit London. This fitted the bill perfectly, lovely setting on the river, nice atmosphere and very friendly staff, even the power cut didn't stop them serving drinks.

Must book to guarantee a table. Busy, lively atmosphere in a beautiful old building, full of character set on the water's edge. Good choice of pub food. The baked Camembert is a favourite of ours.

We ended a 2 hour stroll around Rotherhithe with a tasty Fish and Chip lunch plus pudding. They catered excellently for our group of 43. Well worth a visit for this quintessential old pub. Might be worth making a reservation as often very busy.

The owner of the flat we rented recommended going to the Mayflower which is the oldest pub on the Thames. The captain of the Mayflower drank there before sailing to Plymouth, Massachussetts. The food is pretty good and the prices are comparable to other pubs. If you make a reservation you can sit upstairs which is quieter than the 1st... More

The Mayflower has a great vibe and is steeped in history. It lives up to the reputation of a typical english pub. We dropped in after a long day of sight seeing and enjoyed a drink before heading back to our flat. It has quite a good view if you get one of the tables on the terrace, but it... More

We had done a London walk and finished at Brunel museum and we were hungry. the guide had recommended this pub whilst we were on the thames clipper. Lovely pub, especially if you get a table on the terrace on a sunny day. You can actually see the river through the floor boards. The fish and chips were very good,... More

The Mayflower Pub has as much history as its name suggests, and because of that, it's a popular tourist attraction. There is always a full house, and is a trendy place to go in the area. The food is above-average for pubs, and even when they're busy the food comes fast. They have a good range of lagers and ales... More
