    Fantastic river side view, friendly staff, and good food! Although food quality varies by item: roasts, mussels, liver terrine great - burgers could be better.

    Lovely cosy old pub. Not a great beer selection but Punk IPA on keg is up to standard, and you can't argue with sitting out on the edge of the Thames when the weather is good.

    Lovely atmosphere and Thames-side outdoor area in this old pub. Enjoyed it so much I completely ignored that some of the beer wasn't very well kept. Punk IPA was suitably tasty. Worth seeking out.

    Lovely, lovely old pub. Beautiful location and a nice selection of ales to choose from. They use candles to light up the place! Only gripe was the music. I'd prefer this pub with no music at all.

    4 July: Drink on the spot where America began. There was almost certainly a pub on the site when the Pilgrim Fathers walked the quayside, though they may not have made use of it themselves.

    The Mayflower, the ship that carried the Pilgrims to America in 1620, set sail from near this pub, and it also ended its days here. Timbers from the ship are said to have been used to build the pub.

    Все было отлично, пока счет не принесли. Вместо выпитых 11 кружек пива на 7 человек нам насчитали 18, что увеличило счет на 33 фунта. Счет переделали, но осадочек остался!
