“Excellent Service Once Again 7 July 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

We booked a table for 8pm to celebrate our sister's fortieth birthday. On arrival we were shown to the Writing Room, it had been set out beautifully, it was private and this made the occasion even more special and intimate (on hindsight it was a good decision made by them, as the Champagne flowed so did the laughter)!!!!!!!
James and Jamie looked after us, they were very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

The food was excellent, all meals arrived together, hot and well presented. The manager Jo popped in and wished Nikki a Happy Birthday and to ensure we were all having a good time.

My wedding was held at here in 2007, we have had many family occasions recognised and celebrated here.
We continue to choose to use this venue because the service is consistently excellent, the staff know how to make you feel special, you know what you will get and don't leave feeling disappointed.

We live in thirsk and had family staying in the golden fleece so we decided to have dinner in their newly fitted out highflyer restaurant. It was exceptional from start to finish and if your going try the sea bass or the steak. I had the beer battered fish and chips in fact as my son said it was all good.

We went in for a meal while we were stopping in Thirsk for a couple of nights and the food was outstanding. They had a good selection of real ales which were tip top and the staff were very pleasant.

We stayed at the Golden Fleece while visiting Thirsk for the races. The Hotel is just a five minute walk from the course. The Hotel is located on the Market Place and is the ideal place to explore the area. There are several pubs/places to eat around the pretty market square. As we were going racing, I rang the Hotel in the morning to see if it would be possible to check in early - something most Hotels wont entertain unless you pay for the priviledge! But they said no problem, our room would be ready for us at noon - and it was! The room (a double - no.6) was actually quite small and cramped but adequate for one night. The bathroom was almost larger than the bedroom! That said, it was very clean and comfortable. There is a large car park at the rear of the property for residents. The full Yorkshire breakfast was delicious and far too much for me. The service and staff were excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Thirsk for tourism but especially for racing!

Spent 3 nights in June at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Bedroom was huge with everything you needed from trouser press to tv. Room was at the front of the hotel and yes you do get a bit of noise when the market is setting up but this didn't bother me too much. There is free parking for hotel guests which is a bonus. I only had breakfast but can say it was excellent with a choice of fruit , cereals and fried full English. Staff are very friendly and the service is good. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone looking for a nice hotel in thirsk.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back of the hotel

We have recently stayed at this hotel and can I say the staff are wonderful! It's an hotel we've been to quite alot! Been to alot of places in this country and abroad but The Fleece always draws us back! It's home from home with a very high standard, the food is second to none...from a light eater to a vegetarian!! Couple of personal favourites are fish, chips and mushy peas, lamb casserole also steaks are done to perfection!! Don't know where to start with breakfast....a buffet table with yoghurts, fresh fruit and juices which are set out beautifully!! The full english breakfast is top class award-winning!! Well done to everyone!!

From Mel & Bren McSorley

P.S. Try christmas lunch...one of the BEST!!!
