The Fleur de Lys 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 has a list of landlords beginning in 1498. This makes her the New Forests oldest Pub.
As well as being a pub rich in history, she's also one of the prettiest, smothered under a huge thick thatched roof and the beautifully refurbished interior is traditional, welcoming and serene. She has a rustic busy bar at one end, main restaurant, seating around 30 in the center and a snug room further on which is ideal for private dining or large groups. Vast open inglenook fires in each room means this will the place to be in the midst of the winter, and during the summer laze in the pretty garden with a chilled glass of Rose next to the original water well. Dogs are welcomed in the bar and snug area but not the main restaurant.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to Fleur de lys.... the Grand Old Lady of the forest. Very young children are not permitted in the resturant in the evening due to the small and intimate nature of dining at the Fleur de lys. We are a very small pub that caters for an adult environment, during the summer when the garden is open and there is plenty of space to run around children are more than welcome
All food is freshly, locally sourced and prepared on site. Talented chefs produce dishes classic in style and rich flavour. Puddings are a speciality and we have some wonderful cheeses for the fromage fans. Sunday lunches are traditional roasts, West County ribs of beef, succulent Welsh lamb or pork with crackling and apple sauce.
- Service is at your discretion, however for tables of 8 or more we add a 12.5% service charge.
- Please note on Sunday Lunch we offer two sittings. The first one at 12.15 in which case we need the table back by 2.15, or 2.30 in which case there is no time limit.
