Country pubs don't get a lot better

I can't commend the Fleur highly enough. The beer is good, the food is great, the staff are attentive and super-friendly and the atmosphere is great due to all of the above. The owners have got this nailed - well done. Will be back.

We went to the restaurant for dinner with friends and we were treated to a great evening. We were welcomed with such warmth the scene was set for a lovely evening. Great food and a jolly quiz added to te charm. I absolutely recommend this restaurant. Wonderful.

The Fleur constantly delivers the highest standards of what is best about British country pubs. The food, service, atmosphere and welcome are never less than exceptional. Chris runs a wonderful pub and it is always a highlight of a visit to Widdington to have a meal in The Fleur. Thanks everyone for what is always a special experience.

Had Sunday lunch here after a bracing winter's morning walk. We both had the roast beef + all the trimmings followed by ginger cake with caramel sauce and clotted cream. Service was very attentive and food excellent. Heartily recommended but strongly advise booking for Sunday lunch because the place was packed

What a pleasant surprise. It was a freezing cold winters night and when we entered we were greeted by a lovely landlord and his staff who were totally polite friendly and helpful throughout the meal, lovely fires and a real cosy atmosphere . The food was excellent and all reasonably priced. We will be back again soon, well done.

Our first visit, following recommendations and good reviews over the last 6 months, coincided with my fathers 69th birthday. We booked only a couple of hours before our Saturday evening reservation and seemed lucky to get a table. I'm glad we did. The service wasn't just good, but genuinely friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and our table of... More

lovely classic country pub in rural village setting. Landlord rather too enthusiastic for my taste having been welcomed, asked what I want to drink and if I want to eat all before I even reached the bar - get down Shep! Food menu contained sandwiches, life's bites to mains and dessert. Prices were too high for the quality of food... More

Sadly I don't live nearby this amazing pub! This is the second time I have been and the food is fantastic! The staff are so friendly when you come in, and has such a great atmosphere. I have friends that drive 30-40mins out of the way just to come here to eat - it is really worth it. Can't wait... More
