One word .... wow! Thank you to all the staff the The Fleur for being so welcoming and providing fantastic lovely food, I could quite easily visit every day. The manager made a point of checking in on us every now and then, seeing we were newbies, was interested in where we came from. The food was devine and the... More

Home cooked food, from locally sourced ingredients, a warm welcome, a good selection of beers, a log fire. What's not to like at this busy, dog & family friendly country pub? After several visits, I've not been disappointed, but would recommend booking to avoid disappointment!

This place is exceptional. Food is great, traditional pub food, albeit with a twist - try the nachos. Nice garden, v tolerant I'd children (maybe welcoming would be a better way of putting it) , but the real treat is the landlord and his wife; quite possibly the nicest, most friendly and welcoming hosts I've ever encountered. We live a... More

Warm friendly atmosphere and welcoming staff. Would have liked more choice of veggie and fish but meal we had was lovely. We both opted for their traditional fish and chips. Their website was informative which helps. Although local to us we hadn't been to the pub for years but we will definitely add it to our list of favourites.

Went with friends to The Fleur on a fairly busy Saturday evening. We received a warm welcome from Chris the owner. Our table was ready for us so we ordered our drinks (good choice of real ales, wines and guest lagers) and sat down. The evening menu includes their wonderful 'Whale and chips' if you have a good appetite. Some... More

We've only been a few times since living in the area but it is by far my favourite local pub. Lovely inside but has a fabulous garden which is so well looked after. Well behaved dogs are welcome, which is a big plus for us! We've usually had sandwiches at lunchtime which are tasty, generously portioned and come with the... More

My family and I have been to the Fleur de Leys a few times. The welcome is always warm and the food is fantastic. There is always something interesting on the menu and this visit the caramel cheesecake brownie was the best desert I have ever had. The beer selection is interesting and the beer is kept well. There is... More

We decided on this place after looking on TripAdvisor for somewhere new to go as we are new to the area. The atmosphere was nice although we were made to feel awkard when we first walked in from the stares of the locals. The fire was on though so it had a lovely cosy feeling. The food was rather overpriced... More

Gorgeous pub and garden. Great lunchtime snacks from camembert to bloomer sandwiches. Love visiting this pub especially if the sun is shining!
