After a few 'Sorry' and 'excuse me's' as we made my way through to the tables, we were greeted by a friendly waitress who organised drinks and went through the specials. We enjoyed a very tender steak and glass of wine. Beautifully cooked and a joy for any steak lover. The owner also came over and had a chat which... More

The Fleur De Lys is a lovely country pub serving good food and drinks. The staff are nice and there is a outside area to sit in the nice weather or if visitors are smokers. Definitely worth a visit

Warm and friendly welcome, good ales and a log fire. Specials from the board were good and interesting, with some unexpected items, including beer-battered parsnips (similar to a banana fritter - but surprisingly good), and macaroni cheese served alongside sea bass. Pie was particularly good too. Good quality food, certainly a notch up from pub grub.

Chris and team are simply marvellous - they run a proper pub as it should be - great wholesome fresh food cooked to perfection and to order - no Brakes Brothers boil in the bag here! Great ales by a roaring log fire in the winter and a sundrenched garden for Prims in the summer! Even individual bottles of Prosecco... More

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 !
