Food and ambience

Location and contact

The oldest pub in the New Forest, the Fleur resides in the beautiful village of Pilley just outside Lymington. Serving excellent local ales, wines and spirits, the Fleur-de-Lys first pint being served can be traced back to 1096 and with a list of landlords beginning in 1498. As well as being a pub rich in history, shes also one of the prettiest, smothered under a hugely thick thatched roof, massive stone walls and with a dovecote and water well in the rear garden. The beautifully refurbished interior is traditional, welcoming and serene. A rustic busy bar at one end, main restaurant, seating around 30 in the center and a sung room further on which is ideal for private dining or large groups.

A really excellent meal with very good service, both by waitress and chef. This was an early Christmas meal, without the Christmas food, so a sharing meal for friends. In this vein, we shared a mixture of breads, olives and a fish sharing platter and...More
