Great for fish and chips in a pub especially this time of year as the locals are relaxing with their dogs and a quiet pint.

Dropped into the Mayflower on a cold Autumn evening and the welcome was warm and the pub was cosy. Great selection of ales and ciders on tap but the best value was the fish and chips. Have not enjoyed fish & chips as we did...More

We last went here for a festival and ordered fish and chips to eat at one of the tables outside, the food was excellent, hot, tasty and not too long to wait. We had two little children with us and it really worked.

Always visit the Mayflower when in Leigh and they always have a good range of well kept ales on. Have always managed to get a seat here and usually enjoy their fish and chips. It's a winning combination.

We ate inside but there's plenty of out door seating at the rear and very picturesque if the tide is in. Couldn't fault the food nor the service - we'll be back!

My partner and I decided to go to Old Leigh On Sea, a lovely little gem in Essex- one of our favourite places. We decided to try the Mayflower for takeaway fish and chips. We had very high expectations, as we spend nearly every weekend...More

We visited Leigh on sea on a nice sunny Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a couple of drinks in their quaint public house. It is quite small inside but has a good atmosphere with lots of people eating. The bar staff were efficient and helpful.

The Mayflower won the Camra South East Essex Pub of The Year 2014, and we are very proud and honoured to win this award. We have 5 real ale pumps, we serve local ale, Cockleboats from Georges brewery in Great Wakering and Brewers Gold from Crouch Vale Brewery, plus we have 3 guest ales that change from week to week. We have a restaurant within the pub where we serve traditional fish and chips as well as burgers, hot dogs, fish cakes and various other meals of your choice, plus we provide vegetarian options, and children's meals. You can enjoy an alcoholic, soft or tea and coffee drinks of your choice with your meal. We also serve Italian Gelato ice cream in various flavours of you choice, plus the famous 99 of course. We also have a take away window situated at the front of the building, so you have a choice of sitting in or taking your food home with you.
