Eaten twice here recently due to good weather and the Mayflower has the best pub garden in Lymington. Dissappointed every time. If I am paying over £15 For a main course I expect my cutlery to be delivered with my meal rather than have to...More

This place has visiting yachtsmen by the*****, by that I mean those of us that are tired and don't want to walk into town. The Mayflower promises so much but misses by a mile: fish pie that's 80% mash, chips that are not fresh but...More

This place was very close to where we were staying in Lymington and in that respect was a welcome place to visit. It looks rather austere and ordinary from the outside and caters for all including children. There is plenty of parking and a beer...More

Wonderful atmosphere, good selection of beers and excellent service. Had the fishermans sharing platter, although expensive, was a first class meal. Good food, beer and service what more could you want.

Came here because we liked the location a little out of town after a walk along the seaside. It was busy but not bustling, and we chose to sit inside as it was just getting cold out, but the beer garden looked very inviting, especially...More

Much money has been spent trying to up the standards of what was a good ordinary pub to an up-scale restaurant and weekend retreat.. It has many more rungs to climb on the ladder before it achieves its ambition - partly because of its location,...More

Called into The Mayflower after a wet bank holiday walk around Lymington. We chose this as we had parked nearby and there was a garden with the option to eat outside, as we had the dog with us. We opted for a late lunch and...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!
