The Fleur De Lys
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
9 High Street, Dorchester-on-Thames, Wallingford, OX10 7HH
Situated away from the hectic buzz of Oxford city centre lies the sleepy village of Dorchester-on-Thames. Visitors pour into this picturesque local on a daily basis, all eager to experience the historic charm of Augustinian Abbey, the rolling countryside walks and the must-see view from Wittenham Clumps. Another attraction that begs to be discovered is The Fleur De Lys. This centuries-old inn boasts a spacious dining room, a bustling bar, an attractive garden area and five luxury en-suite bedrooms. The heart of this pub's appeal, however, is a menu filled with tantalizing dishes. Each course has clearly been given a lot of thought, and both the starters and mains include a multitude of carefully prepared treats. The sweet chilli duck and bacon salad is a light and tasty way to start a meal, while both the pan-fried sea bass served on shrimp and chorizo risotto, and the slowroasted shoulder of lamb with bubble and squeak, green beans and honey jus highlight just how varied the mains dishes are. Further adding to the dining options at The Fleur De Lys, there is also a dedicated bar menu and a credit crunch lunch option. So if you're a tourist visiting the area, or simply somebody who enjoys good, elegantly presented food, head over to The Fleur De Lys and sample the delights of this traditional Oxfordshire inn.
