The MayflowerCome summertime crowds flock to the waters of Rotherhithe, the home of The Mayflower inn - a pub that's almost afloat it's so close to the water.

Steeped in a seafaring history, The Mayflower boasts ownership of a small, but significant, slice of England's mighty maritime past. Captain Christopher Jones moored his ship nearby before sailing to America with the Pilgrim Fathers. Legend claims he washed down a pint at the pub before and after his voyage.

A wonderful timbered terrace stretching out over the water, supports contented punters as they sip beer, sunbathe, socialise and listen to the gently lapping water washing against the jetty. On very hot days a light breeze blows off the river giving a distinctly continental feel to the place. With a fine selection of real ales including Greene King and Abbot, this pub is a scrumptious setting for a summer's day. Arrive early if you want to beat the almighty throng of sun-worshippers that will descend on the sought-after terrace.
