    I enjoyed my meal with my friend. The risotto was a little bit stodgier that I would normally like but it was still enjoyable. My mini dessert with coffee was the highlight however. I probably wouldn’t visit on a Friday during school holidays because the restaurant was very busy and loud. My friend is elderly and wears an hearing aid and the background noise interfered with her comfort. But she said she has visited on a day when it wasn’t so busy so I would probably choose the day more wisely in future. But overall a good experience.

    Excellent service from all staff at The Fleece. We were running late but this was no problem and they didn’t try to rush us. Food and wine was lovely and we would definitely return here again if we were in the area.

    A quintessential English pub experience. The food was delicious, the atmosphere friendly with nice decor. The only small issue was the length of time getting our drinks after placing our orders. The location is beautiful as the pub overlooks the green with the church of St. Mary’s in the distance.

    Disappointing food from the specials board. 2 of us had a goats cheese orzo dish which we both thought was flavourless apart from an overdose of black pepper. Undetectable goats cheese, lots of stringy mozzarella. Nice friendly service but cutlery was smeared with finger marks. Not up to its usual standard.

    Delightful lunch for 4 people - delicious ingredients cooked beautifully. The pub was busy so with only a couple of waitresses, the service was a little slow but very friendly and helpful nonetheless.

    The salmon and crab starter was so over priced for what was on the plate. It was tiny, to the point I said to the lovely waitress, where is the crab? The lamb was tender but again not worth the price, 4 very tiny slices!
