a word from our happy customers...

  • Jane & Matt KershawManchester

    We were staying nearby at Flamingo Land which was great but after 4 nights of eating on the park we decided to venture out. We found exactly what we were looking for at The Fleece. The food and drink was out of this world and really sensibly priced too. We are coming to Robin Hoods Bay next year and we will be back. Thanks to Jen and chip for making us feel so welcome!x

    Thanks to all the staff at The Fleece for showing us a great time last week. Your Seafood is to die for! There aren't many true, family run pubs like yours around these days and it was lovely to see the place thriving the way it does. There are plenty of places to park and the beer gardens at the back were great for our dog to stretch his legs. I hope to see you again soon. Thank You.
