Description: Located in the harbour of Lymington on the South Coast, The Mayflower is a stunning coastal inn which has superb dining and stylish rooms with seaside views. Our six bedrooms are beautifully finished, each with their own unique, comforting and contemporary twist. Sleep in the finest Egyptian cotton bed linen, bathe in beautiful Victorian roll-top baths and enjoy some down-time with a Nespresso while looking out over the Solent. Recently awarded a coveted AA Rosette, we pride ourselves in supporting all things British and all things local, so expect to dine on the finest ingredients that Hampshire and the beautiful South Coast have to offer. Our talented chefs have lovingly prepared a delicious menu, including beautiful seasonal dishes such as crab and lobster macaroni with spinach, morels and tarragon or Buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, grilled pepper and basil bruschetta. With an extensive wine list, the best in class ales and a great selection of creative gin cocktails, we have something for everyone at The Mayflower. As a nation, we love to experience the outdoors with our food and drinks. Come summer time, our guests can enjoy our spacious garden, with a picture perfect coastal backdrop as far as the eye can see. The perfect location for al fresco dining. In the winter time, we have real log fires throughout the pub to keep you warm on the coldest of nights. We are conveniently located on the South Coast in Hampshire and are very near to the Isle of Wight and the New Forest - which are truly beautiful at any time of the year, and offer the best in sailing adventures, sightseeing and countryside pursuits. Whether it's a perfectly British Sunday lunch, a lazy afternoon in the garden with friends or a romantic getaway, make The Mayflower your destination of choice!

“Consistantly Good”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We have been using the Mayflower for several years now, and I've only just thought to write a review! We visit our Autistic Daughter in the Lymington area and use this pub to take her out for her lunch. What I like about this place is that the menu has good variety, all the food is well presented and well cooked, and you never have to wait to too long. There is a pleasant garden for warmer days too.

“Finally found the place to eat in Lymington”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

After coming to Lymington for many years Mum and Dad have struggled to find a good wholesome eatery of reasonable price. We tried The Mayflower last night had their sizzler offer which was 2 sizzlers for £12. You could choose from Cajun chicken, 8oz rump steak, gammon among other choices. We had the Rump steak and it was cooked to perfection and was delicious. One of the best steak meals I have had for a long time. My Dad had Hake fillet, chips and mushy peas which again looked delicious and not greasy. Final verdict of the evening was my Mum commenting " I think we have finally found the best place to eat in Lymington " and it was heaving !

“Excellent food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Busy at times so patience may be required to order your food, but well worth the time in line.
We have been eating here for some years now and never had a bad experience.

“Worth a try for lunch or just a quick drink”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We arrived in the middle of a very busy Sunday lunch service on the first warm sunny day of the year. The garden was a sun trap with an area for kids but plenty of space for adults only. Pub was clean and tidy. Staff were a bit frazzled but coped well. £26 for two main courses and two drinks. Friendly staff, quick service, tasty fresh food, reasonable prices. Yep we'll be back.
