We spent one night here whilst attending a family Christening nearby. The Golden Fleece is a pub restaurant with very good B&B rooms which have been converted from stone outbuildings, and the standard of the bedrooms is excellent with quality fixtures and fittings.
The bed was a king size and very comfortable, and the bathroom modern and clean. The towels were thick, large and good quality. As someone has previously said, blackout blinds on the Velux rooflights would have helped cut the early morning light in the room but that is a small issue.
We ate as a family group in the restaurant, some dishes better than others but the goats cheese starter and pie main course won praise. Very convivial atmosphere in the dining room with diners and drinkers at the bar.
Paul, one of the owners, checked us in to our accommodation and was behind the bar, and he is a very friendly front of house person who made us feel welcome.
We can definitely recommend the Golden Fleece if visiting the West Country.
