Description: Dear Guests welcome to the Fleet Twyning. We are a beautiful riverside pub on the edge of the river Avon. We pride ourselves on home cooked fresh food along with our traditional Wadworth Ales. We get extremely busy in the summer time as we are a very popular destination pub and wait time on food can vary from 10 minutes to 1 hour, so we ask you to be very patient with us as we cook all your food to order from fresh produce. In the winter it is advisable to book in advance as our tables get booked early on for weekends and early evenings.

“A colourful re-opening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

With a makeover complete The Fleet at Twyyning re-opened in the summer, only to suffer a massive setback when an electrical fire caused extensive smoke damage to the whole building. After extensive cleaning and refurbishment, the Fleet is once again open to the public.
It continues to be a food focused establishment with pleanty of indoor seating for dining. The decor and in particular the colour scheme is very modern and may not be to everyone's taste, but the overall effect is very pleasing. There is a comprehensive menu to cater for all tastes both at luchtime and for evening dining. The staff are well informed and friendly and the standard of service is excellent. The food is well prepared and mid-range in price. There is extensive outside seating on the river bank and terrace for warm summer days and a welcoming ambience inside for cold winter nights. The Fleet, now under new ownership and management, is a far cry from the run down establishment of old. With an overflow carpark established on the riverside, this is an ideal location for lunch or dinner. I had lunch there this week which was excellent. Warmly recommended. Oct 2012.

“Beautiful location. Extensively refurbished. Average place to eat.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We've known the Fleet for many years and seen it progress from an old fashioned village pub, situated in a beautiful location, to its now "extensively updated" finish.

The problem here is that the pub is not run by an owner-occupier and therefore it has the feel of being part of a small pub group. Its food is at best, average, in quality and taste, but is also limited in choice.

The service was pleasant and adequate, and the prices of the food and wine, was very reasonable, but there was just nothing special about any part of our visit.

“Lovely location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The Fleet has recently been stylishly refurbished, the outside space is well utilized with wide terraces over looking the river.
We were part of a large family party, although very busy we were shown to our table very quickly.
Most of us ordered the Sunday roast which was OK but not great, the vegetarian in our group only had one veggie choice but intended to fill up on the veg, unfortunately the veg was RAW not just 'with a bite" even the vegetarian couldn't eat it.
The website advertised the Sunday roast at £9.99 but it was £12 deserts £6.
All the staff were charming, the location and decor great but the food disappointing.

“Everthing about it is just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I took my wife to The Fleet for her birthday on Saturday, based on my previous experiences of The Tivoli, Cheltenham. It is everything in a restaurant/pub you wish you hand in your own village, sadly we dont live in Twyning. The staff are welcoming from start to finish, the service prompt and efficient, and the food is great quality and value for money, we eat from the 3 course menu and the cod thai green curry comes recommended. They have gone for quality wines, such as South African Pinotage and not taken advantage on the prices. The whole decor is interior designed and you can tell this company does know what they are doing. Cant wait to go back.

“Lovely meal. Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Love the revamp! Recently had a family birthday and enjoyed everything. The food was fabulous and the service great...can't fault it! The setting is always a joy and look forward to winter evenings when the fires are lit.
