Best Sunday lunch roast beef ever

Entertained my mother for a birthday meal. Don't think she's ever had such a memorable time. The beef was delicious, cooked brilliantly, and arrived within minutes of order. Will certainly come here again. Landlord and staff were plentiful and first rate. Highly recommend 🍻🍻🍻

We have visited this pub on several occasions for a drink and found it to be a pleasant, friendly place. Today we decided to go for lunch. The pub was busy but not bursting at the seams, so we were surprised to witness chaotic scenes at the bar, including loud complaints that orders were not being taken. When my husband... More

Me and a friend ate here after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and it definitely did not disappoint! The food was delicious and the service was great, we met the owner who was lovely and made us feel so welcome! We were on a bit of a tight schedule so they made sure or food was nice and quick and...

Another marvellous evening at this great local pub. We only live a few miles away in Thaxted and there are numerous pubs between the Fleur and us but we instinctively default to The Fleur de Lys. The menu gives a good range of meals and they are always beautifully cooked. The owner is just the best host you can imagine... More

Weather your a local or just visiting there is always a warm welcome at the Flur by the lovely Chris of one of his friendly staff. The food is lovely always fresh and well cooked and slightly different although you can still get amazing fish and chips, burgers or Ham Egg & Chips etc.

Just back for 'date night' dinner. Delicious food, excellent presentation and ample portions. Service was lovely, in fact the owner was super accommodating and very friendly. Atmosphere is good - popular with the locals and non-locals, those drinking and eating and all well balanced. Toilets could do with a bit of attention though. Would definitely recommend.
