Good food and beer

Quite a short menu but good choice. Good beers and good value for money. Friendly and efficient staff.

I have been sitting here waiting for a bowl of soup for almost 45 minutes and there are only three people including me in the place. I can't wait to see what the food is like so I am leaving. To say the service moved at the pace of a snail would be a compliment. An appropriate adjective would be... More

The menu lacks variety and does not cater for people on a gluten-free diet. The service was slow and staff seemed unconcerned when they told us that there was nothing gluten-free on the menu (we forgot to check when we booked as most places provide gluten-free options these days). We booked a table and arrived on time but had to... More

Fantastic home cooked food, lovely atmosphere and really lovely beer garden. I had pan fried chicken with new potatoes and pancetta sauce from the specials board and my partner had Steak & Ale pie, both meals were large and delicious! Had Creme Brûlée and Sticky Toffee pudding for afters and they were delicious too. Can't wait to go back

The management of this pub is a joke ! We booked our sons christening here and was totally let down 3 weeks prior due to the manager not treating our booking with any importance We booked 8 months in advance and were told we'd be given 3 menu options of £3.50 £5.50 & £7.50 per head and we said it...

Just returned from visiting this fine Yorkshire pub for a lovely Sunday lunch with a mate. I have visited the Fleece on a few occasions with work colleagues and were always impressed with the fine selection of hand pulls on the bar. Regardless, this time I opted for a glass of Shiraz which wasn't bad as a house choice. With... More

This pub, although slightly away from the main shopping centre of Otley, is large and welcoming, with pleasant staff and lovely spacious gardens by the river. Food looks good, and there are several good beers on tap, also wine. The gardens are approached from the car park, there are steps down to a sunny lawned area, where food is also... More

Tony f's review says it all really. I'll just add that the rump steak is excellent and arrived cooked exactly as ordered. The steak and kidney pie was also extremely good. Both meals were large enough that we didn't touch the dessert menu. If The Fleece wasn't 12000 miles from home I'd be a regular here.

My wife and I had gone to Harrogate for the flower show , in the evening we were looking for some where to have an evening meal. We decided to go for a drive but went the wrong way and ended up in Otley. We stopped and asked some locals where they would go for a decent meal. They all... More
