We moved to Widdington some months ago and regularly visit the Fleur, including today for a Sunday roast with some friends who were visiting from London. I cannot recommend Fleur highly enough, they always make us feel so welcome, the food is outstanding and it just has that warm friendly atmosphere that you want in a country pub. The staff... More

A group of adults and children for my 50th party. Fitted us all in on two separate tables as agreed. The place was packed but service was still good throughout - these folks know how to run a gastropub. The fish and meat platter starters all went down well, with good quality ingredients - as did the tacos. Pretty much... More

We had a quick lunch here, everything we ordered was really tasty and fresh, service was very friendly and although quick it was a very pleasant lunch. I only wish there were more vegetarian options to choose from but the halloumi with sweet potato mash was delicious and beware, HUGE. I was glad not to order a starter.

Four of us went for supper on a Saturday night and despite the fact they were very busy indeed the service was welcoming and attentive and the food was excellent. The Fleur de Lys raises the bar (no pun intended) for other 'pubs in the area. It's just a pity they don't serve Old Speckled Hen !

Both the pub and the welcome are warm. Always a log fire from early autumn onwards. Saturday dinner, we had fillet of trout on a bed of greens with a sauce, and excellent big chips and a burger. The menu - regular dishes and a good range of specials on the board - is the sort where you fancy all... More

I had to change the booking at the last minute, due to mixing up the dates. The owner was very accommodating, and we were able to go on Saturday, rather than Sunday, for lunch. Although we missed out on the famed roast dinner, the food was excellent. The staff are very friendly and the landlord was charming. Will definitely go... More

Lovely meal and the owner bent over backwards to help us - one of our party had a food intolerance and they couldn't have been nicer.

I took four friends for a meal on a Friday evening. We all had an excellent meal including one of my friends who has coeliac disease. Nothing was too much trouble arranging a meal which she could safely eat and she was delighted, not only that she was able to eat with the rest of us but with the quality... More

I was feeling a bit flush so I treated the wife to a belated birthday lunch. The fleur de lays was the destination. Set in a little village called widdington we headed off. Easy to find and plenty of parking. It's was a nice day so we sat outside. The menu isn't massive but there is enough choice. We ordered... More

Called in here as part of the britstop scheme. The landlord could not have been anymore helpful if he had tried. Thank you very much, it was appreciated. Love the fact that it is still a traditional country pub and not turned into a bijou eaterie. Fish and chips execellent. Real cider on tap. what more could you want. Young... More
