We sat down for a delicious British style meal. We come from the states came to visit my son and family they said agree this is one of the best meals we've had. The prices were very reasonable. Don't miss it.

Our walking group dropped in for drinks. Service was excellent, even though the pub was very busy and we ended up sitting outside, and the coffee I had was lovely. The pub has been extensively improved since my last visit, I hope to go back again soon.

Great Sunday menu - I was really pleased to find locally produced porchetta and it was delicious. Good service, good wine, comfortable and friendly. Would be nice to see a wider selection of craft beers though.

Been to the fleece twice now once with a group of eight,and once as a couple,the atmosphere food and staff, are fantastic. A real gem not like some pretentious other local establishments.The team can cook good wholesome food obviously under a head chef who knows what he is doing, you feel right at home. BEST PUB FOR MILES

This is a cracking pub. Real ales served in a bar reserved for drinking with nooks and crannies leading to rooms where you can dine. Had a Sunday roast with an awesome bottle of Rioja for £20 . Nice fit out and one of the most impressive wooden fort/Wendy house thing for the kids too. 10/10!

This place is excellent. I stayed here for one night on a recent business trip. On arrival the staff were very welcoming. The room was decorated to an excellent standard. Dinner was excellent with a great atmosphere in the pub area with a number of the local residents who made me feel welcome in their local. Breakfast was freshly prepared...

Nicest Roast Beef I have had in many a year, though not for those who do not like their meat rare, which I do. Roast potatoes were to die for and the four accompanying vegetables were all perfectly cooked. Wine is very reasonably priced. Very pleasant ambiance and the staff were very friendly and efficient. Excellent value for money, £67...

Really good hearty food! Been a few times now and never once had a problem! Kids food is top notch too! Always busy so we book in advance, dogs are allowed too which is great if passing by on a walk! We love it and will be back!
