In summary; a great building in a great location but horrifically overpriced food and poor service.

I ordered a 'homemade' mushroom burger with thyme and goat's cheese. What I expected for £11 was something along the lines of Byron's (fresh mushroom, a decent amount of cheese, fresh brioche bread), after all Byron charge just £7.75 - nearly a third less.

I've been living locally for 1.5 years, and it takes me this long to get to the esteemed Mayflower? It's nothing like I imagined. For some reason I thought it would be a new-ish, quay style building.

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
