Family meal

Nice meal at the Fleece. Very good choice, varied menu. Steaks were particularly good. Very big burgers. The meat board is a good starter to share. Service was a bit slow and not very attentive, serving staff were mainly very young, pleasant and polite but a bit slow to check on drinks. Prices ok... read more

We regularly eat at the Fleece on a Saturday night. The food is good with a decent choice. Went on August 1st, closed for a private function. I would have thought that some room could have been left for customers. This is the second time in about 2 years this has happened to us. We will not be going again.

We regularly visit Otley as we have family here and just at the end of there street is the fleece. Food is delicious and great for adults. Kids menu isn't as great but still are some options after I explained how fussy my daughter was she got her own special meal to her taste. Friendly staff and on a nice... More

Was invited to a private afternoon party at this lovely pub in Otley. Being summer it was arranged for the party to be held in the lower beer garden next to the river. Huge grassed area where the children could play (there were a lot in our party). Picnic benches and tables, bit hard on the posterior after a while!... More

Family ate down here, bar staff very nice but at times inattentive. Had to go up to order our food and order additional drinks. Food was decent just didn't seem to have much love put in to it. Chips horrifyingly soggy, pasta dish drenched in oil. I'll be back because I like the place, but the food and service really... More

Very disappointing. Wouldn't recommend or go back. No children's menu, but half portions are offered on all meals. Ordered 2 children's fish and chips. Sadly pulled 3 hairs out of the fish. 'Chips' were chunky/soggy/sweet/skin on version, not popular with my kids. Husband and I orderd Rib Roast Beef and Yorkshire pud with roast potatoes and veg. Arrived barely lukewarm... More

Really disappointed that the 'new chef' has decided to keep the old menu. The usual 'veggie option' of risotto is so tired, and shows a complete lack of imagination. Wake up Fleece - you have the potential for far more customers if you choose to recognise them. Veggies account for 20% of the Otley population, and I'm sure you can... More

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
