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

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
