Lovely pub with very friendly staff and great food. Even better is that it sits alongside the river test. I can imagine in the summer this is very busy as it is so peaceful.

Went to this place as a treat for my Mother's birthday. Have been here before for lunch and when I have been it's been either Autumn or Spring but it's in a very nice location and would imagine it being a little busy during the Summer. We arrived at about 1230 and it was already relatively busy but managed to... More

Visited here recently for my Dad's 70th. The location is fantastic sitting right on the banks of the Test river I would imagine it would be best on a summers evening. Slightly disappointed with the small selection on the menu, although the food was excellent and service was good. Unfortunately they don't do a kids menu either but they did... More

Had a lovely pigs cheek & pistachio pate and a glass of wine today, but when it came to paying my bill of over £14.00 with a credit card, was advised that anything under £20.00 incurred a fee. I was, frankly, horrified. I totally understand a fee for a bill of £10.00 or under, but over £10.00 I feel is... More

Went here due to the review in one of the sunday papers. I was a little surprised that the menu has such a small selection on it, but ended up having the bangers and mash. It was pretty good, but it wasn't what I was planning to have that day! the place has certainly geared up for the tourist trade.... More

We stumbled across The Mayfly on the way home from a weekend in Weymouth, we turned up on a Sunday and had a fantastic meal. I had Mussels to start and the portion size was great value for money. The roast dinner is delicious too. Aside from great food and staff the location is stunning, i can't wait to go... More

Although quite pricey for drinks this is a gorgeous little find. Perfect location to sit and have a drink or some food on the river. We stayed in accommodation for 4 nights and we were in this pub 3/4. Staff are really friendly and very helpful.

We visited the Mayfly for the first time today at lunchtime. The food was excellent & the staff were polite & friendly. We had starters of pork cheek terrine with pistachio nuts & cheese & black pudding croquets followed by fresh trout fishcakes. Then shared a treacle sponge pudding! We would certainly go back & try other dishes off the... More

Just rang up and spoke to a young girl on the phone and I cannot believe how rude she was. Compete turn off already. Service is most important and if you can't even speak to someone nicely on the telephone means a lot. Absolutely disgusted.

Living locally, we often take overseas visitors, on a fine day, to lunch outside on the riverside terrace. It is a classically English location .. The noisy crystal clear chalk stream water of the Test tumbles from under an old brick bridge into a widening reach with chunky trout visible below and squabbling duck swimming above them. Magic. The food... More
