    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.

    Jump off the Overground line at Rotherhithe for a pint and some food at one of London’s best pubs. It takes its name from the ship that took the Pilgrim Fathers to New England in 1620. Read more

    Go out onto the back jetty/patio at high tide and pretend you're on a log flume.

    "The current building is 18th century, and looks every inch the traditional English pub with oak beams and wooden panelling. A fine dining room can be found upstairs, with impressive Thames views..." Read more

    The food is consistently good at this riverside pub. The 30 day aged beefburger is really good, fast efficient service. The Old Salt Quay nearby could learn a LOT from this place..

    Best chicken & mushroom pie I've ever had! Crispy pastry sitting on mashed potato, carrots, lots of green veg & a rich beefy gravy.

    Lovely classic old English pub. Start the night with some cheese and ale. Steer clear of the main meals. Great band on a Friday night making it a fun atmosphere.

    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.

    A beautiful pub with a fireplace and lots of little antiques, nice place to have lunch and a pint. Looks like it's lost in time, which is good. Lovely staff.

    The terrace is very cool, nice views, practically on the river. We had some pies which were quite tasty but I saw a very promising cheese plate at the nearby table as well... Definitely worth a visit!

    One of the coolest pubs in London. Especially excellent when the back deck is open as it sits right over the Thames!! Great place for dinner. It's an intimate and very cool pub

    Jenna Anderson · October 5, 2014
  • Phil C.

    My favourite pub south of the river. Fantastic pub grub (loved the pie) and decent selection of beers. The back puts you right above the thames. Great for a summers day

    Amazing roasts and fish and chips. They also have a deck right along the water.

  • Sara K.

    Pies and views are great. Leave the risotto. It's £1 if you want more than 3 small pieces of bread with the Camembert, which you will.

    Encantador. Buena comida, precios no tan buenos.

    Pepa Lázaro · July 16, 2014
  • Ruslan T.

    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!
