Had a lovely Sunday evening in the Fleece food great and great value. The Inn is traditional warm and cosy and the dinning area being separate from the bar area feels like once you've finished eating you can relax by the fire comfortably and carry in enjoying you evening

Last night I met up with friends who had all travelled quite a long way to eat at the Fleece. We had a very good meal, pleasant service, and an enjoyable evening. HOWEVER. I was quite alarmed on arrival to find that the menu was completely different from the one on the website. It was very much more restricted (no... More

Hello Thank you for your feedback, it is appreciated. We are very glad you enjoyed your meal! The pub has recently been taken over and is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment. The website that you have viewed was set up by the previous owners Mitchell's Brewery and they have unfortunately not removed it now that the Fleece is in private ownership.... More

Clearly undergoing renovations but a characterful pub. Pleasant bar staff. Good food, generous portions, served promptly. All in all an enjoyable Sunday lunch with a nice pint of Hen Harrier. Good luck - we need pubs like this to keep going,

Had a great meal. 4 adults and 4 kids. The very attentive, friendly and courteous waitress moved tables together and even got the locals to move for us as they were quite full. Food came quickly but we were not rushed at all. When it came, the quality of the food was excellent with good portions. Very impressed. If we're... More

I have visited the fleece (restaurant - not as a hotel guest) a total of 3 times in the last 6 months and I have not been disappointed once. For less than £10 you can get a generous sized main meal and I think the food is very reasonable in quality for the price. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.

I went for a Sunday roast a couple of Sundays ago. The meal when served looked as if it had been just warmed in the microwave . The gravy had a skin on top. Hardly any veg. The Yorkshire pudding was hard and unable to be cut up, therefore had to leave it. When the waitress asked if it was... More
