Welcome to the Fleur De Lys
The Fleur De Lys (Flower of the Lilly) originates from the 17th Century and is the only remaining pub in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of East Hagbourne. A short walk from Didcot the surrounding countryside is the perfect place for walking and dogs are very welcome in the Bar area.
Originally owned by the Lockinge Estate it is reputed to have been owned by the Napper family for 142 years before being sold in the 1950s to the Abingdon Brewer Morlands, founded in 1711 in West Ilsley by farmer John Morland. The pub still displays an original Morland Ceramic Painter Plaque, known as "The Artist Fayre" produced by Poole Pottery or associated Carter Tile Works designed by Reginald Bell.
We are delighted to have been awarded South Oxfordshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019 and more recently voted winner in the first round of the Central Southern Region Pub of the Year covering Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
There is a comfortable bar area with open fire providing fine beers, wines and spirits. Our guest ales are carefully selected and change regularly.
The Restaurant offers an extensive home cooked menu, featuring traditional pub food lunchtimes and evenings. Where possible our produce is sourced locally and Chef's specials change regularly. The dining room can accommodate up to 50 guests making it the ideal venue for business functions, smaller intimate Wedding Receptions, Christmas Parties, Family Celebrations and Funeral Wakes etc.
We have a large outside decking area and top garden ideal for alfresco eating or simply enjoying a few drinks with friends and family.
At the Fleur we are passionate about music and regularly host Music Evenings and Festivals, details of which can be found on our events page.
Every first Wednesday of the month we have an informal acoustic/electric guitar evening covering popular songs from the 60s onwards.
Every third Wednesday is our popular well established Folk Night founded by the late John Stanley, which in 2017 celebrated its 25 anniversary.
On the second Monday of the month excluding June, July, August and September is our Quiz Night, this is very well attended and booking is advisable
We have Darts, Crib & Aunt Sally Teams all of which compete in local leagues.
We are very proud to support local artist and illustrator Linda Benton and several of her unique paintings, montages of village life are displayed throughout the pub and are available to purchase.
We work closley with the Village and local community sponsoring the Village Produce Show held annually in September, the Village Fun Run held on the first Bank Holiday in May & St Andrew's Church Christmas Tree Festival.
