We went there for lunch. The decor was nonedescript. The menu was fairly limited. Fish & chips - batter was light but oily and fish a little overcooked. Chips refried and half of them inedible. Bangers and mash - swimming in gravy, the mash tasted odd and the sausages on top of that very ordinary and long way from Cumberland.... More

I went to this wonderful country pub for the first time yesterday. The staff could not have been more helpful and happy to have us. Lovely atmosphere in the pub and beautiful garden. Very child and dog friendly. Food was excellent quality and good value. We will definitely be back

This is a wonderful country pub in a pretty Essex village. Chris and Ellie are excellent hosts and the pub caters well for families, couples, and people with dogs. Great beer garden and fantastic food. Well worth a visit

Regular visitor here, especially when friends or family come. Sometimes take the dog. It is very much a relaxed country pub so expect dogs and their walkers , especially on a Sunday. Lovely roaring fires in the winter. Large garden for the summer. Food is excellent, especially their roasts. Chris and his family and staff are very welcoming.

Visited on a Sunday. Typical English village pub, nice food, friendly bar staff. Too many dogs for my liking but I'm not a dog lover. Definitely return.

Our third time of visiting this pub and as good as ever. If you want a proper pub roast Sunday lunch, cooked in house rather than the dismal reheated commercially pre-cooked stuff that a lot of places fob you off with, then you can't do better than the Fleur. Also great beer. Oh, and no intrusive music.

As a spur of the moment and being recommended thought would try it out for Sunday lunch. We had not booked but they managed to squeeze us in, the service was impeccable always with a smile, there was a good range of ales which suited all palates, the menu choice was extremely varied but all we wanted was a roast...

Our Son & Daughter in law have just moved to the village of Widdington and their house is right opposite this Pub. They had reserved a table for lunch and we saw the necessity for it, very popular and with a dog friendly attitude. there were 4 other dogs sitting quietly so no problem there with our dog. The Menu... More
