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

Decided to pop down to this pub on a Friday to find it heaving with locals and families in either drinking in the bar area or in the restaurant area. Plenty of young staff on, friendly and efficient. Great selection of real ales and wines available. Managed to find a table for two, ordered rump steak and chips, and fish... More

Chose this pub for a birthday celebration and it more than delivered on our expectations. Wonderful, warm atmosphere with roaring fire. Superb food, all locally sourced. Great service. Hadn't been back for a few years, but everything about our excellent experience was exactly how we remembered it. A great venue to choose if you want a wonderful dining experience and... More

A great old English pub, complete with low ceilings, a roaring fire and friendly local dogs. Great atmosphere, but perhaps best surprise is the great yet reasonably priced food. Book for Sunday Lunch.

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
