Awful staff member !
Oct 2020 • Friends
Most of the staff are lovely but one staff member spoke to me and my friends like we were dirt in the ground. She had blonde short hair, no idea of her name. Her service was shocking, made us feel really unwanted. Made us feel awkward and we are regular customers. Don’t even want to return again as she made us feel so uncomfortable for just getting drinks and wanting to have some fun times with friends. DO NOT ORDER WITH HER IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A DRINK IN PEACE! other than that the male staff are lovely to everyone and are very pleasant. There was 6 was of us at a table however this women was walking around not social distancing, talking to multiple different groups of people on multiple occasions, very hypocritical.

Covid-19 & the Fleece
Aug 2020
I visit the Fleece most days. On each visit my track & trace details are given. All bar stools were removed before re-opening and all customers must be seated at tables. There is no crowding at the bar, unless a gaggle of lads go in and need reminding of the rules. Social distancing signage and floor markings are throughout the premises. The need to socially distance and operate a one-way system preclude the offering of a table service outdoors

The Fleece is a lovely historic building, originating C.14th/C.15th, with great people, a good food offering, and good service.

hankyou Graeme We have strictly followed all COVID guidance for pubs to the nth degree since reopening and are proud to say that we have passed every random inspection by the police, environmental health and the licensing authority. The review last week has been posted to the wrong venue, and even though I have complained to Trip Advisor they have left it in place. The reviewer refers to our terrace, we don’t have a terrace, neither do we have a downstairs bar, but a venue nearby also called the fleece does have both, they have a huge viewing terrace overlooking the valley

Has Lockdown ended here !!! CLEARLY YES
Aug 2020
Clearly lockdown has ended here !!! Went for a drink to sit on the terrace and presumed it would be waitress service as it is everywhere else we have been to safeguard guets having to stand at a crowded bar or next to other people - we were informed there was no waitress service and to go to the downstairs bar - at the bar it was clearly everything back to normal !!! No social distancing - no asking for details to track and trace and a couple of people sat at the bar who clearly have no idea what is going on in the world - Of all places we go for drinks I was more than dissapointed at their insensity of the matter

This review has been posted to wrong venue. We at the Fleece Inn, westgate in Elland strictly adhere to COVID protection and have done since we reopened for business. We do not have a terrace, nor do we have a ‘downstairs bar’ however there is another venue nearby also called the Fleece that has both a downstairs bar and a huge terrace overlooking the Ryeburn valley. We have also reviewed all our track and trace data for the last 21 days, and have received no visit from a person called Karen C

Family Wedding
Nov 2019
We stayed 2 nights here with our extended family for our youngest son's wedding.
Quirky rooms and great food followed by a gorgeous wedding in the hotel's function room. Room was beautifully presented and the friendly, efficient service made for the best of days. Thank you to everyone concerned for their part in a special day.

Visited The Fleece in July, excellent
Jul 2019
While searching for a Pub between York and Halifax I settled on The Fleece Inn Elland. I loved the atmosphere, low ceilings ancient interior as one might expect. The outdoor seating was delightful as it could have been, expanse of green and outdoor tables. This pub appears to be a treasure with the locals - I have to agree!

The food was delicious, well prepared, reasonably priced. I found the bar keep helpful - made great Gin’s and had a nice selection of wine on hand. My favorite dish was the Lamb shank with a choice of gravy, peas and potatoes. Hearty fare served just right. Excellent pub food that will bring you back again.

Though I missed the haunting spirits, I did see the the area in which Gentleman Jack was filmed. The atmosphere in this pub is all you can ask for, just lovely.
I look forward to my next visit!

Nice country pub
Aug 2019 • Family
Visited for lunch with a friend who is a regular for lunch during the school hols with 3 teenagers & 2 nearly teenagers. Service was friendly. Food was good too. My only 'complaint' is the chicken & bacon salad was mainly rocket/green leaves, 4 maybe 5 halves of tomato & 3 small pieces of chicken & bacon. The price did not warrant the disappointing salad but the rest of the food was good.

I'd visit again but choose something different from the menu.

I believe you have reviewed the wrong Fleece Inn. We are definitely not a country pub as we are situated right in the middle of Elland, and our chicken and bacon salad is nothing like your description. We use 2 full bacon rashers and a whole chicken breast, and do not use rocket. Maybe you visited the Golden Fleece at Blackley or the Fleece Countryside pub at Ripponden ?
