The Drovers Rest is the restaurant at the rear of The Fleece Inn. We arrived early for our booking and were greeted a wonderful lady who not only worked the bar but served in the restaurant as well. Even the locals gave us a friendly welcome and the ambiance was cosy and welcoming. The chef works single handedly and cooks... More

We are here as a gift with a gourmet pub voucher but will definitely be back. We ate from the taster menu which has the added value of offering choices at each course. We had two starters, sorbet, two fish, three meat and then a finale of no more than six sweets. I could not fault a single thing and... More

Had a lovely taster meal here tonight for two, 2 starters, 2 fish courses, 3 mains and 5 deserts each. The food was amazing, the deserts absolutely gorgeous, massive thumbs up to the chef. The staff were lovely, very accommodating. Would definitely recommend to anyone to try the taster menu. Definitely be going back soon

We went here on a 'Gift ideas for two'' voucher (strange scheme, but that is another story) which gives you the 'tasting menu', a selection of their normal menu for £60 - though the pub only gets £49.
