Both my husband and I had the swordfish which was Devine and cooked to perfection. The presentation was brill and the portion was just right. This little bistro had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the bar staff were helpful.

Visited The Lily on a Friday at 6 ish. Lovely bar and good atmosphere....but service at the bar could be better. My husband felt like he was being ignored. We ordered fish and chips....fish good as we're mushy peas but had I known I was going yo get skinny fries I would have ordered something else. Battered fish should be served with chunky chips. Dessert was nice...treacle tart.
