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, with her thatched roof and the traditional, welcoming interior. 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.
Children under 10 years of age are welcome during the summer when the garden is open, although not in the restaurant due to the small and intimate nature of dining at the Fleur de Lys.
