Not cheap, but I didn't feel ripped off

I've been a regular patron on the liquid side but this was the first time in a few years since I've eaten here - and I wasn't disappointed. Four of us had two ample courses each (I've got a hearty appetite) plus a couple of drinks each and it came to £82 I'll be dining there again :)

Being in the trade always makes it tough finding somewhere good to go, but this place was an amazing surprise! Took the family here to celebrate Mother`s Day and the meal was the best she has ever had in a restaurant...The lamb was perfectly cooked, the vegetables were tender and not over done. The presentation was superb. No detail was... More

After going downhill this place is back on the up and up. For a bonus still quiet thanks to the slump. Great friendly welcome, as was always experienced, food back to its brilliant best. Ale, a little short on choice due to being "let down by the brewery", what was on in fine form. Looking forward to being back here... More

The Fleece is a lovely setting - with a roaring fire indoors, a beer garden on the river outdoors... with very nice bathrooms, a cosy side room (dogs allowed and walkers welcome) and good food. Sadly, it often lacks a buzz, as the place is large and frequently rather empty. The food is excellent but the service sometimes deficient (slow,... More

I had heard good things about the food so some friends and I decided to try it out for lunch on 2nd Jan 2015. The lunch took about 40 mins to arrive and I had to order lasagne as they had run out of chilli. When the food came most of the dishes were not hot and the food quite... More

Food is way overpriced and very small portions, photos on tripadvisor do not reflect the poor dishes that are been served. A number of dishes were off the menu during our visit, I ordered a steak and kidney pie which was suppose to come with vegetables, I expected maybe some carrots and peas etc I was shocked to recieve some...

Friendly service, great countryside garden in nice weather, fantastic local beers. Welcoming pub - highly recommend the burgers. Have also tried the lasagna but wasn't what I expected, a tad too much cheese. Overall though a highly recommended gastropub with nice ambience and jazzy music.
