Popped in for dinner on Sunday for the first time in maybe 15 years. I'd heard it had had a makeover, but I was really surprised at how good it was. Really friendly atmosphere, great service and superb food and wine. Pretty much ticks all the boxes. We'll definitely be coming back.

Family meal. My husband and I had visited years ago and remembered while we were out so decided to give it a try again. The outside hit us first. Wow what a change, then the inside was vastly improved and our children loved the play area. We had to wait for a table for 6 (our fault for not booking).... More

We arrived around 12:45, not having booked, requiring a table for 6 people - 3 adults & 3 children 12, 6 & 4. We were told the wait time would be about 1-1.5 hours which suited us fine so settled in with drinks, menus and some very good coffees whilst the children went and played in the very well equipped...

We visited the Fleece in April and June and both times had a lovely meal. Service was good and the prices reasonable. We have now booked a New Year's Eve overnight stay as a result of our positive experiences

What a wonderful offering! The decor has been very tastefully done. The food was fabulous, great menu and we priced. Including a beautiful outside area with play frame for children. Only feedback for changing would be rather formal, verging on frosty, service. It was so nice other than that a smile would have topped off an otherwise perfect experience

I recently ate here with family after my nephew's graduation. Due to a hold up we arrived later than our booking time and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or understanding. The food was delicious and although the restaurant was very busy we were not made to feel rushed. We will definitely come back again the next time we... More
