The Mayflower in Rotherhithe is ‘very excited’ to reopen so its customers can enjoy the beautiful view again, writes Simon Throssell…
It will be opening up its cobbled front and decked jetty for customers from 12th April.
The outdoor space boasts a perfect accompaniment to a pint; a beautiful view of the River Thames.
The pub was awarded a Blue Plaque courtsey of the News and Southwark Heritage for its historical importance related to the sailing of the Mayflower.
In 1620 the Mayflower, commanded by Captain Christopher Jones, sailed from Rotherhithe on the first stage of its epic voyage to America.
After providing takeaways during the lockdown, a member of staff told the News that they were all ‘very excited’ to have people back.
In a statement on its website, the pub said: “Thankfully we are delighted to say that as of the 12th April we will be taking bookings for our outdoor decking area and will also have limited walk in space at the front of the pub.
“We will also be starting reservations shortly for bookings inside the Mayflower as of May 17th.
“We miss you all and look forward to welcoming you back, safe and sound.”
