The Fleece is a fantastic pub. The landlady and her team have done an amazing job in creating a warm, welcoming pub which although busy, manages to still feel 'villagey'. The Sunday lunches are becoming stuff of legend in these parts! ** Please be aware that the pub closes at 6pm on a Sunday ... We had my daughters 21st... More

Found this gem of a place whilst having a brief stay at camping and caravanning club site in crowden. The only reason we haven't give full marks is because unusual for that part of country it was really hot and humid and we couldn't open windows so were very hot and had to fan ourselves with menu! Otherwise,fantastic well cooked... More

I called last Sunday with my husband and mother for Sunday lunch - we were not disappointed ! The Fleece is in quite a central position within the lovely village of Holm, it is a very busy pub with a well deserved reputation for good food. Inside was buzzing, staff gave a warm welcome and we were well looked after... More

A lovely pub lunch in a spectacular location. Very generous portions. Steak and ale pie was delicious. Quite pricey, but good quality food. Would recommend.

Called here on Sunday for a late afternoon meal, the location is lovely the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was good. This is a pub on a tourist route (cyclists), it has a handy little shop tagged on for take away food and bits and bobs, we enjoyed our meals and considered them to be good value,... More

We stopped outside The Fleece for a breather on our cycle ride up to Home Moss this morning, the place was closed so unable to review food, service etc but the plastic flowers in all the hanging baskets and pots outside looked absolutely dreadful and so cheap against a backdrop of incredible beautiful scenery. With less than 6 weeks to... More

Whilst out walking we planned a lunch time halt at The Fleece, internet research revealed that the pub was on the expensive side and our intention was to use the attached shop and pantry. However due to the heavy rain we retreated indoors and enjoyed some good food in pleasant surroundings. Two cheese sandwiches, two portions of chips, two pints... More

I popped in on Saturday lunchtime and was impressed by how lovely the Fleece Inn is inside. There was an open fire going and quite a few people eating. I ordered a Turkey sandwich and asked for English mustard on it. The sandwich was lovely as was the beer. Alas there was no mustard in the sandwich but it was... More

I have just had Sunday lunch here with my family, the food was really nice and there was plenty of choice, although it would have been nice to see some chicken dishes on the menu or specials board. Between us we sampled a few different dishes and everyone enjoyed it. However, there are few little things that did disappoint me... More
