There's a museum for the Brunel Tunnel that's worth a peek if you're into that sort of thing (I am!) it's just by Rotherhithe Station. There's a decent pub called the Mayflower opposite too!
The Mayflower must have improved then, although I have to admit that I haven't been in there for 7 or 8 years.
The prices suddenly became a bit steep in the early 2000's, I don't know why, maybe the rent and/or rates went up and the publican had little option.
I don't drink beer, but friends who did said that 40 or 50p had been added to a pint.
As soon as I noticed that a double vodka was £1.00 dearer than at a lot of other pubs I switched my allegiance wholly to The Ship, St. Mary Church St.
Prior to that I had used both pubs.
The Mayflower has always been a clean pub though, but heavily favoured by tourists, due to it's connection with the Pilgrim Fathers voyage to the New World.
