Although the food was nice (not memorable) we will not visit again in cold weather as it was very cold. We asked to be moved after our starter and were moved to the snug. Warmer from the tiny log burner which he said he’d just got going.
All in all food ok but not enjoyed due to being cold.
If you’re going on a cold night wear thermals and a coat.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We genuinely appreciate your candor and are delighted to learn that you enjoyed the food. However, we regret that your overall experience was marred by concerns about the temperature.

We acknowledge that room temperature can be subjective, and we sincerely apologise if the conditions did not meet your expectations. While we did not perceive the room as cold, we understand that individual comfort levels vary. We also observed that our other diners were comfortable, but we recognise the importance of catering to personal preferences.

In response to your request, our team promptly relocated you to the snug, adjacent to the log burner, aiming to create a warmer and more comfortable atmosphere for you. We appreciate your understanding of the snug's design, including the size of the log burner. To clarify the log burner's capacity and size aligns with the rooms total volume and was professionally installed to ensure a stable and safe output appropriate for the space.

You are correct burner had been lit earlier to prepare the room for a reservation, and the fire was also on in the room where you were initially seated.

Your feedback is crucial to our continuous improvement, and we appreciate your insights. We hope you may reconsider visiting us again in the future and if you want a table next to the fire please mention this upon booking and we will gladly oblige.

Thank you once again for your feedback, and we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back for an enhanced experience.

Warm regards,

We went the Golden Fleece for dinner as we had stayed there a couple of years ago and enjoyed our stay.
I think it must have changed hands since our visit, the place gets good reviews but we felt that the food was (a little microwaved). When our main course was delivered I tried to order a drink from the waitress who declined my order and asked me to go to the bar. Very odd because only three tables occupied and two waitresses serving food. I didn't want my food to go cold so didn't bother with a drink. Don't think I will return.

Enjoyed another great Sunday lunch at The Golden Fleece. Booking certainly advised - saw some walk ins unable to get food. Good selection of Sunday meals, including a platter for two although we heard thos had "sold out". Our beef was delicious and was accompanied with a good selection of vegetables and Yorkshire puddings. After a little break we ordered desert, both of which were very tasty (although the sticky toffee pudding and ice cream was enough for three!). The best Sunday lunch we've found in the area and further afield; we'll be booking for next week.

Have visited the Golden Fleece many times and would almost class it as our local, we arrived at 20:15 for a meal only to be told in an unprofessional manner that they had finished doing food.
It clearly states on their website that food is served daily until 20:30.
Unfortunately they will not have my custom again.

Booked for Sunday lunch for a family of 6 (4 adults, 2 children, 2 dogs). We booked our table months in advance. On arrival we were shown to our table which was clearly a table for 4 people but set for 6. When I queried this with staff. I was told it was a 6 person table. We had to move a chair to the end to accommodate us all.
When the food arrived it was clearly evident we could not all sit around the table comfortably.
The food was average.
Childrens choice was poor.
Flat beer.
On finishing our meal, no plates were cleared and a member of staff started sweeping up around us.
We paid and left disappointed.
