Lovely matching décor with nice quality furniture and fittings, and real napkins, rather than paper serviettes compliment the great food. It was a lovely day so we chose to eat lunch in the garden. The staff were very friendly, service fast and efficient. Everything flawless. The only downside, and probably very unusual, was a group of small children running amok... More

The staff were extremely helpful and understanding for the needs of the requirements of our small group. Everyone enjoyed the food enormously, and believe me thats not easy with my family! The fish was cooked to perfection.

Popped in for a drink on Easter Saturday evening and decided to eat in the beer garden. Fantastic fish and chips, cheeseburger, seabass and homemade curried parsnip soup. Great atmosphere and highly recommended.

A most fantastic meal. The food was wonderful on each course. Presented beautifully. The waiting staff never stopped and everyone was served with the same, efficient, friendly service. It really was a very special meal. The wine was perfectly chilled. Would not have been able to fault any part of the evening if I tried.

Popped in for a drink on a sunny Saturday afternoon, it was busy because of the weather and there was limited staff behind the bar which meant waiting a while to be served. Nice big beer garden and dogs are welcome, we will pop by again soon.

24 people gathered for coffee and ordered their lunch. We set off on our walk and phoned the Mayflower when we were 15 minutes away. The food was due to be served at 1.00 and so it was. The whole event was very well organised by the staff, providing individual service wth a smile! The food was very good too!... More

My daughters' took me here for Mother's Day dinner. Lovely setting, lovely interior and the staff were very friendly and helpful- if you don't count the fact they forgot one of the desserts! The food was very nice, not huge amounts but that suits me as I don't have a huge appetite but may have been a little meagre for... More

  • This restaurant is at The Mayflower
Located in the harbour of Lymington on the South Coast, The Mayflower is a stunning coastal inn which has superb dining and stylish rooms with seaside views. Our six bedrooms are beautifully finished, each with their own unique, comforting and contemporary twist. Sleep in the finest Egyptian cotton bed linen, bathe in beautiful Victorian roll-top baths and enjoy some down-time with a Nespresso while looking out over the Solent.
Recently awarded a coveted AA Rosette, we pride ourselves in supporting all things British and all things local, so expect to dine on the finest ingredients that Hampshire and the beautiful South Coast have to offer. Our talented chefs have lovingly prepared a delicious menu, including beautiful seasonal dishes such as crab and lobster macaroni with spinach, morels and tarragon or Buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, grilled pepper and basil bruschetta. With an extensive wine list, the best in class ales and a great selection of creative gin cocktails, we have something for everyone at The Mayflower.
As a nation, we love to experience the outdoors with our food and drinks. Come summer time, our guests can enjoy our spacious garden, with a picture perfect coastal backdrop as far as the eye can see. The perfect location for al fresco dining. In the winter time, we have real log fires throughout the pub to keep you warm on the coldest of nights.
We are conveniently located on the South Coast in Hampshire and are very near to the Isle of Wight and the New Forest - which are truly beautiful at any time of the year, and offer the best in sailing adventures, sightseeing and countryside pursuits. Whether it's a perfectly British Sunday lunch, a lazy afternoon in the garden with friends or a romantic getaway, make The Mayflower your destination of choice!
