The Mayflower

Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Of all the Thamesside pubs, this one is the most special, the most atmospheric, the most tucked-away – and its wooden deck at the back has probably the best view of the river too. If there’s a better accompaniment to an evening pint than the sound of the river slapping away through the slats under your feet, and the lights of the City twinkling away in the distance, we’ve yet to find it. Inside is brilliant too – it dates back to 1620, with ecclesiastical wooden pews, real ales, an open fire and a friendly hubbub of chatter. A real find of a pub.

The Mayflower says
The Mayflower is a traditional, typically English pub and restaurant boasting a great view over the Thames from the outside, decked jetty. The building is the oldest pub you'll find in London on the Thames. It's full of history and the original mooring point of The Pilgrim Fathers' Mayflower ship.
