From the moment we arrived at the Fleur De Lys, the pub landlord Chris made us feel most welcome. The service was friendly, and there is fantastic beer behind the bar. The burger is made with local ingredients and cannot be beaten for flavour by anything in the area, and the fish and chips is also pretty great. I cannot... More

This pub ticks all the boxes from what you would expect from a lovely old traditional country pub set in a picturesque village. The young Landlords have not turned this into a gastro pub but kept it original and invested in very good kitchen staff using fresh local ingredients and lovely open fires. The Landlord and staff made us so... More

What makes the fleur de lys so great is the staff there and how welcome they make you feel. They are friendly and sociable and you are made to feel right at home. They have a delicious menu; traditional pub food done to perfection. A great choice of beers on tap at a decent price too. Keep up the good... More

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
