- Just beautiful!
Visited here last Friday, as it was on our 'to do' list for some time. The village itself is gorgeous and really quaint. It was quiet when we visited, so we enjoyed some lovely ales whilst exploring this stunning old pub. The barmaid was so friendly and filled us in on the history of the pub. All the staff we encountered on our visit were really friendly and welcoming. We decided to stay for food, as it was near lunchtime. I had the fish and chips and my husband had the pie. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced and we were really pleased that we decided to eat here. All in all, this pub is really well run and a must visit for anyone who appreciates beautiful, well kept old pubs. Well done to everyone here. We'll definitely return.

- Absolutely stunning setting for a wedding. We stayed in the Gypsy Caravan which is located at the bottom of an orchard. The quietness is amazing and as for the caravan, it was an absolutely wonderful experience. Delightfully decorated and also has a little wood burning stove for those cold winter evening's. The breakfast was of superb quality and you have a choice of having it brought to you or eating in the pub. As it was cold we opted for the pub which is steeped in history. Definitely recommend and will certainly return

- Myself and Dave just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything you did for our amazing wedding day on 7th August this year. We both had the best day and all of our guests commented on how wonderful everything was, particularly the venue. All of the staff were absolutely fantastic and the venue looked perfect. So thank you very much!!
- “A wonderful 60th birthday party. We chose the Tudor Barn at the back of the Fleece Inn as the venue for my mother's surprise 60th birthday party. It's a beautiful old timber framed building, already well decorated with hops and fairy lights, and we were able to bring our own flowers, balloons etc as well. The staff, especially Jacquie, were very helpful in accommodating our various requests beforehand and helping us find the best table arrangements, food choice for the buffet, wine selection etc. They were always very prompt in replying and sorted out all our queries on the day - helping us work out when it would be best to serve the bubbly for the toast, where it would be best to arrange the buffet tables etc. The food was delicious, the atmosphere really fun and there was even a piano in the room which we were able to use to sing 'Happy Birthday'! Many, many thanks to a very special team for all their hard work and for making the occasion, in a wonderful historic venue, so memorable."
- We visited for lunch last Sunday 5th. We've been quite a few times before. Unfortunately just a bit late this year for asparagus but we had a fantastic meal. The Eton Mess was the best I've ever tasted, the mushroom starters were perfection and the ciders were lovely. We then sat outside in the sun admiring the hollyhocks and flowers in full bloom. We had a sneak look in the barn where there had been a wedding the day before. Looked lovely. Couldn't ask for a better way to spend our afternoon. One day we'll actually stay over and give the ales and ciders the attention they deserve!
