“A lovely Sunday lunch”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Sunny Sunday, lovely pub, lovely location, fab food and great staff. Although it was very was busy, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The Sunday roasts were delicious, worth every penny. Beautifully-cooked meat and scrumptious Yorkshire puds and roasties! Plenty of veggies too. Highly recommended.

Down for a wedding, so spent 2 nights here and ate on the first night. No problems. Staff really friendly, especially Claire :-) ate the liver, which was awesome. Also great place to sit on the green and have a cold beer. Loved it.

Very pleasant gastro pub on the green in central Whitney . Live music ( very good ) and BBQ outside when we arrived, table for 6 pre booked which was a good move due to Bank Holiday weekend. Great choice of different dishes though the majority went for the Sunday roasts which were superb, also plenty of extra gravy and veg offered. As it was so busy we had a long wait for our food - this was quickly sorted by the most helpful staff who offer impeccable service from arriving to leaving. Would recommend a meal here no problem

End up in witney after walking out of Eynsham Hall Hotel (see other review). Ended up staying a few doors down from the Fleece at The Winey Hotel, which was expensive and dirty. Stepping out of the Witney hotel we saw a large pink pig staue outside the door of the Fleece (now figure that one out) so we approached.

A small perfectly formed contemporary gastro pub in ites tenth year by all accounts. Well the welcome could not have been warmer and the food delicious and Hana our waitress was gorgeous. Attractive yes, but helpful, patient and interesting......shes a keeper, give her a raise.

I was gutted top doscover they did rooms and they looke dso much nicer than the Witney Hotel (don't stay there stay here). They have a Free Green Room seating 30 for events too.

If ever in the area and its likely deffo staying and I hope Hana is serving!

I was in the area for a few hours before flying out of Brize Norton. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!!! The friendliness of the staff and quality of service was above almost everywhere I have eaten.
The steak was cooked perfectly, I have not had food this good in a couple of years. Service was done with a smile and everything seemed a little above what you would expect, so i would say the professionalism was among the best i have ever seen.
I recommend this place to everybody in the area and when I am in the area in the future I will eat here again.

This is a really nice hotel in an excellent location and with good food and value. It's right on Church Green, a beautiful green space surrounded by historic buildings at the hearty of Witney. Parking is good.

After 5 visits to the Fleece, I feel confident in recommending it as a 'reliable' place for good food at a reasonable price with a friendly vibe in a lovely setting. The atmosphere is always buzzing and the staff are energetic and enthusiastic. It's a great place for groups and couples and we always leave with a smile on our face!
