La Fleur de Lys Restaurant with Rooms

Bleke Street, Shaftesbury, Dorset, SP7 8AW
This good restaurant with rooms is housed in a former girls' boarding house, and is a popular place for that special occasion.

Cooking standards are high, and much effort goes into saucing.

While the menu changes with the seasons, starters such as 'Pan-fried Veal Sweetbreads on Caramelised Red Onions, with a Green Peppercorn Sauce'; 'Pan-fried Scallops and Parma Ham on a Salad of Fresh Asparagus, Mange Tout and Baby Spinach with a Pine Nut and Grain Mustard Dressing' and 'Mixed Green Salad with Croûtons and Garlic Dressing' set the style.

Mains might include 'Grilled Fillets of Dover Sole with a Dill Sauce'; 'Pan-fried Saddle of Dorset Lamb with Ratatouille and a Rosemary Sauce' and 'Char-grilled Saddle of Wiltshire Seka Venison with Blueberries, Pears and Shallots and a Red Wine Sauce' – there's always an interesting vegetarian option.

Desserts are a strong point, and might be too tempting to resist – with possibly 'Rich Coffee and Chocolate Pot with Coconut Biscuits'; 'Hot Praline Soufflé with Pecan Nut Ice Cream and a Hot Chocolate Sauce' or 'Two Parfaits of Lemon and Lime, with Fresh Raspberries and Pineapple Purée on offer.

To round off a special day, an overnight stay in one of their comfortable bedrooms is thoroughly recommended.
