Must visit pub, for those with an interest in history.

Story well told - from this site the Mayflower set sail for American in 1620. The captain is buried in the churchyard opposite.

The pub is completely old world. Leaded windows, door to the. A bottom bar full of nick nacks and nautical pictures. An upstairs terrace for dining. Low ceiling and lighting make you think you are in any century since the mayflower set sail.

Greene King house. Around four handpulls from independent breweries - Redemption Hopspur in reasonable condition.

Cheese board looked intriguing.

This is a fine historic pub. I have found the beer choices good and nearly always in good condition. When not the friendly staff are very willing to change the pint. The food is good though a bit expensive. It does get busy in the early evening with people making a evening out from work.

This is a very historic pub attracts many visitors, especially Americans. As such it can get extremely busy. I would not go on a weekend again because we had to wait some time for a table. Even when you are standing you get jostled around by the staff coming past with plates of roast dinner. That said if you can go when it's quieter, it is beautiful and very evocative of it's 17th century associations. You can stand on the deck where the Mayflower set off to what is now the USA in 1620 with the puritanical religious fanatics aboard. I also recommend going down the steps to the side of the pub and checking out the Thames foreshore if the tide is out but be careful to watch your step as it can be dangerous down there and slippery. The beer and food are very good here and they have done well to serve our American friends a very English selection.

As others have observed, the low rating for this pub must be a relic of a bygone era as we found a charming interior, better-than-average food and well-kept libations. The price wasn't too bad, either. If you find yourself near Rotherhithe overground station (hey, it could happen) you should drop in and soak up the atmosphere (and some beer, obviously).

A cosy and of course very popular pub trading on its riverside location and that terrace, similar to those at the Prospect of Whitby or Hammersmith's Dove. Several good ales including one by Dark Star which I had some of. Nice staff and apparently good food too (not tried on this occasion).
