Sadly there was confusion with our order. Hot desserts came with the main meal so communication needs to be better. Ive never experienced this before. Very bizarre. They did set it right but would have left it if i hadnt said i wasnt happy. My husband kept his as he doesnt like to make a fuss. My mums hot chocolate... More

Popped in here for initially one beer but got talking with the staff, the couple running it were very friendly and welcoming. I ended up having a few beers and enjoyed my time in there. Thanks again

Cosy little pub which makes you think you've stepped back a couple hundred years when you enter. Good price for good drink.

Not the first time for a meal here, but a very different experience than previously. Lunch menu is very basic but also very cheap. The meals were cooked to order and were hot, with decent chips. Drinks were also fine although wine choices were limited. Service was friendly and reasonably prompt. Card payments were not accepted. I'm not sure that... More

Visited here with a load of friends as a Harley Davidson friendly pub for the Wake The Lakes rally. Drinks prices typical pub prices. Good service. Not a lot of choice for wines but reasonable beer selection.

The lady behind the bar was very pleasant and asked if we needed any sauces etc.My mate had a ploughmans lunch and he said it was thoroughly enjoyable.All in all a... More

Visited the Fleece on a recent trip to Kendal. Outside was in need of some TLC but decided to try it anyway. We had our dog with us on the trip and she was welcome in the Fleece but only in the small area at the front of the premises. My partner ordered the steak pie and I chose macaroni... More

Visiting friends for the weekend we decided to visit Kendal for the day and try Ye old Fleece inn which had been recommended due to it being 'dog friendly'. On arrival we sat in a pokey booth, the paper table cloth was stained with the last occupants leftovers. The pub was meant to be 'rustic' but I found it tired... More

Thank you for taking time out to give us a review as we take all take complaints serious but a few things did bother me about your review, as stated on the specials board the beef curry (home made not out of a tin) was only served with chips and poppadum's so next time I ask you to read all...
