“Great Value early meal”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We enjoyed an early evening meal here and it is a very nice located hotel in the beautiful market square of Thirsk. The place was very busy and many locals enjoying this local bar. The food was well presented and the staff very attentive the barman was very busy but still managed to pleasant and attentive a credit to the establishment.

We stayed at the Golden Fleece 17 September - 23 September. We'd been in London for a few days and were looking forward to exploring Yorkshire and "Herriot country." Our original plan was to stay only three nights but we enjoyed the hotel and the area so much we stayed until the last day before driving back to LHR.
The breakfast (cooked or continental) was wonderful.
The staff, including reception, bar and dining room were outstanding. They were quite gracious in dealing with our change of plans and our southern accents.
The rooms were perfectly clean and well-maintained. We stayed in #26 for part of the time and #21 for two nights. #26 is larger but #21 has a bathtub.
Parking is provided at the back of the hotel. I recommend you get there early or you might find yourself boxed in.
I wish I'd gotten the names of the staff members so I could thank them directly; perhaps this will do the trick.
We will most certainly be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in two of the "Mews rooms" which were quiet and pleasant. I recommend #26.

Wanting to drink where James Herriot might have drunk we popped in here for a pint. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the bar is light and spacious full of comfy chairs all done in 'soft' tartans.
We were offered the Early Bird Menu which was very reasonably priced at £8.50. My husband and I both had the Chicken with Mushroom sauce. My husband has to have gluten free so without any fuss they made a mushroom sauce specially for him. Thank you so much! Both meals were lovely and beautifully presented.

After a very long journey for a business meeting the next day the warm greeting at the Golden Fleece was matched by the comfy room (Room 5) and tasty evening food (Roast grouse breast with blackberry, savoy cabbage and mash). Slept like a log ! Top quality breakfast which set me up for the day .... i will be back ... with the wife and dog !

Room Tip: Room 5 was very comfy with a large walk in shower.

Arrived at The Golden Fleece to a very warm welcome at reception our first impression was that this was a good start to our break. From then on it just got better every member of staff we met seemed to be pleasant and welcoming. Our room was clean and spacious with all the facilties you would need. Great meals both dinner and breakfast. Would return if in that area without a doubt.

We called in for a bar lunch today and had grouse breasts and vegetables for £12.95 which was stunning value for the quality. The breasts were served with raspberries. The place is pleasantly decorated and well located. Highly recommended.

I stayed at the Fleece in Thirsk on the 12th September and found it one of the most welcoming and comfortable and unfussy hotels I have stayed in.
The staff are friendly and the food excellent both dinner and fine yorkshire breakfast.
I cannot recommend too highly
