The service was great, the staff were very attentive and friendly. The setting was nice and the pudding was lovely. The main meal was unfortunately very average, tasteless and overpriced.

Took far too long to get our drinks in the Tipi. It was well over 20 mins from ordering to actually getting our drinks. We left after an 1 hour because we didn't want to wait so long for our next drink. We've been a number of times now and its always the same so not just a one off. But we won't be going back.

We experianced a excellant service from Caitlyn our waitress, she was so helpful, accomadating and couldnt do enough for us, kept making sure we was ok and everything was to our satisfaction, to the point we actully booked in for Drinks that evening.
Caityln is a absoulte credit to the Golden Fleece I hope the next time we are in we see her. The food was absolutely amazing and cooked to perfection, portion size was very generous on the Fish N Chips and the Burger was just Perfect our Thank you to the Chef.

Usually love the Golden Fleece and recommend it to everyone we know but yesterday’s experience has put us off. Waited over an hour for our food, there was 4 of us at the table 2 meals came out leaving our friends waiting over 10 minutes for their meal to be brought out. We ordered extra mash and when asked where this was we was told side dishes come out separately, we had near enough finished out meal once this came out. Meals was no where near hot enough, as though they had been sat for a while before been brought out. I don’t think we’ll be in a rush to visit again. We also received no apology for this, also when our glasses were empty the staff which were just stood around didn’t ask if we would like anymore drinks.

We ate in the main restaurant which was fairly quiet and tables are well spaced. The food is as good as ever and the staff very friendly and helpful. The service was rather slow.

Moved out of tipi due to being smoked out! Drinks and food service extremely slow. Tapas available on board on wall but when questioned this, we were told it wasn't available. Food overall was good quality.

When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely girl who showed us to our table.
We then waited 10-15 to be served, and when we were the girl was extremely rude. ‘What do you want??!!’ She brought our drinks over, bottle of wine and Prosecco, just put them down and walked off. The table was extremely sticky, the girl came over several other times and her tone did not change. Still extremely rude.
We didn’t eat food but didn’t want to leave a negative review as a friend has eaten before and said the food was nice.
For my first visit, it put me off from wanting to return.

We had a really lovely lunch here, although the meals were described as "small plates" there was plenty for a lunchtime meal. Loved the cocktails and the friendly service.
