“the fleece inn kendal”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

This was our second experience to this lovely ole inn on the main street in the centre of Kendal.The first visit was wonderful,and recommended it to people looking at the menu outside as we left...The second time we walked in to a queue of people waiting to order meals at the bar,and with only one woman dealing with a credit card payment.
Our table was sticky,had been wiped over but without any obvious sign of detergent.
My partner went over to the bar to order our mea....15 minutes later returned with our drinks.
The first sign that our meal was coming was when i heard a blonde short haired woman shout to her workmate,who was thw woman behind the bar..."where is the BLOODY cumberland m saying the Bloody...The sausage was small,and the veg was luke warm...and the onion gravy,WOW i could stand my spoon upright in it....Never again,bad experince,dont recommend.

“Quaint pub, shame about the food”
Reviewed November 25, 2011

Visited Kendal this week as part of a stay in the Lake District, lunch time came and we needed something to eat quickly. Unfortunately we choose the Fleec Inn or as its known Ye Olde Fleece Inn. We ordered the soup and sandwiches and a baked potatoe with chilli. There was one member of staff on and she appeared to be doing everything, clearing tables, taking orders and serving behind the bar. We chose a table and the food came out quickly, I wish it hadn't. The soup was revolting, I think it was vegetable, it was brown and liquidised and tasted foul, the sandwiches were Tuna, just tuna and were ok. My partners baked potato was cut open and a ladel full of mince with kidney beans in was poured over the top, this was apparently chilli. Pub food should be quick simple and satisfying, this food was everything but. We went to M&S afterward and I wish we had eaten there.

“Going down hill”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

The Fleece is and always will be a pub first with meals as an after thought. Every time I visit Kendal it seems they have renovated this place at one time there was a nice little front area, warm, comfortable to sit and have a meal. Now it is cold and not very inviting.

The menu was very limited though must admit the soup and sandwich were quite tastey and a good price.
