Historic Pub and Dining

The Fleur de Lys resides in the beautiful village of Pilley just outside Lymington. Serving superb food, 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. Vast open inglenook fires blaze in 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 restaurant 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.

Fleur de Lys wine and table


We keep our dining capacity limited to maintain a relaxed atmosphere. With a maximum of 30 diners all our tables become occupied at peak times. Sunday lunch is our busiest time, so to reserve your table contact us by phone or email.

Inside Fleur De Lys

Useful information

We are open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through to Sunday Lunch. Please note, if you are coming on the second 2.45/3pm Sunday lunch sitting, please do not arrive early – we have no capacity to sit you anywhere apart from your booked table, this means if you arrive early you will have to wait outside until the time your booked in for.

We request you to book via email rather than telephone: info@fleurdelys-pilley.co.uk. Please include a contact number.

If you have booked a table outside, please appreciate that if the weather is bad, we may not have space inside to move you.We do not have a separate Children’s Menu.
Dogs are allowed in the Garden, the Bar and the Snug room for Dining, not in the main Restaurant.

The menus on our website are an EXAMPLE of the food we produce, not necessarily what will be on the menu on the day, as we buy daily – fresh and local produce where ever we can. There is normally a special of the day on.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Fleur De Lys.
