The Mayflower


The Mayflower is one of the oldest pubs on the river Thames and is located in Rotherhithe Village just two minutes from Rotherhithe Station. The bar is classically warm and cosy with French doors opening out onto a deck over the Thames.

The upstairs restaurant and bar are ideal for private parties up to 60 people, with stunning views of the river . The venue serves high quality food along with well kept real ales and an eclectic range of thoughtfully chosen wines, all at sensible prices.

After a particularly disappointing attempt at dinner over at The Old Salt Quay, my friends and I came to the nearby The Mayflower in Rotherhithe. Home of where the pilgrims gathered before heading down to Southampton to board the Mayflower ship to America.

Such a wonderful old little pub that you'll like immediately upon entering. A friend and I went here for lunch on a Sunday, not thinking it would be too crowded, and we were very wrong. However, the lovely staff upstairs found a place for us and were really welcoming and friendly.

Everything on the menu looked delicious and was all pretty reasonably priced, the most expensive probably being...more
