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

A very good pub - great traditional Sunday roast, beef perfectly cooked - a rare find these days will go back.

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

Just been to the Fleur de Lys for lunch on Christmas eve. The food was excellent as always and catered happily for requests of the menu from my picky octaganarian mother. The range of real ales and wines was good and the welcome was warm as the fire. The bar staff are much more engaging than most pubs and help... More

We visited the Fleur de Lys for our work Xmas do for the second year running. We received the ubiquitous warm and friendly welcome and very good service throughout the meal. Everyone enjoyed their food which was of a good standard and generous portion size - I particularly enjoyed my baked camembert starter. The evening was enhanced by the regular... More
