Have visited the Fleet a few times over recent years, just for a drink, but recently had one night's accommodation. Beautiful room, very well presented and the most wonderful view of the river. The meal in the evening was excellent and a very good choice of breakfast next morning. The Fleet is a delight - we would recommend it as a lovely spot for a break this time of the year, very relaxing and welcoming.

We were invited to a 70th birthday party at the Fleet at Twyning and decided to stay overnight for two nights.

We could not have been made more welcome or had better service anywhere. The Deputy Manager, Ali Williams, went out of her way to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. The cooked breakfast on both days was outstanding.

When we attended the 70th birthday party for 50 people, the service was impeccable and the food outstanding. Long may The Fleet prosper under the new owners Wadworth Brewery.

The view from the Boathouse accommodation was outstanding over the river with boats cruising past. On the whole an excellent stay. We will return. Mary and Neville Sharpe

Happy to recommend, had two nights in a lovely clean, well presented comfortable room, the breakfast, full English was served by a happy obliging waitress, extra drinks no problem, second day had dinner as well, what a feast, roast beef with all the trimmings great, the position with its south facing veranda and lawns makes the venue highly desirable for a host of occasions. will definately return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the boathouse, south facing overlooking the river and open fields, all of the 3 rooms a...

Needed acommodation as I was going to a party nearby.
Not knowing the area chose the nearest place.
This Inn was beyond expectations for a B&B.
The room was delightfully furnished, had tea and coffee facilities, lots of towels, and toiletries, hair dryer, and a great comfortable bed,
By the river, so, so quiet, breakfasted in silence watching a few small boats and barges go by. WIth such a beautiful landscape beyond.
The staff were all so repectful and helpful to the point of saying "the door opens this way" because one would naturally open it the other. ALso ordered a taxi for me, that arrived on time.
Breakfast one of the best ENglish ever served to order so nothing dried up and the best was a proper americano decafinated
I just loved it so much my breakfast and rest by the river lasted 2 hours.
I will return even if I have no occasion to attend

Room Tip: rooms overlook the river

Seemed okay to me. Very helpful staff, good food, good beer, good setting and apart from a dodgy door lock good accommodation. As a business traveller the only thing that may stop me staying again was lack of Wi-Fi in the accommodation.

Three generations of us went for dinner on 24.08.13. Table was reserved and as requested with a view of the river and suitable for my disabled father.
Service was excellent and a joke was shared about the flickering light bulb that was eventually removed as it was annoying everyone.
Lovely olives to start and assorted breads, all shared and enjoyed.
2 of us then had the trio of fish, Red Snapper, Cod and Crevettes, beautiful.
Son had steak and was thoroughly impressed that when he asked for it rare the chef cooked it rare (many chefs bottle it and overcook it). He was so impressed with the steak he would have had it blue had he known the quality.
Cheesy chips were good, one disappointing meal was the chicken supreme, rather dry as slightly overcooked, needed one of the available sauces which they soon made once alerted which was very quick as the waitress was very attentive.
Sue well pleased with her Caeser Salad which was a starter as a main but big enough!!!! We had to help her finish it.
Cheese board to finish. Beer and wine all good . £162 for 5 people, several bottles of wine, beers and soft drinks seemed reasonable to me given the overall quality of the food.
Will return.

Just returned from an afternoon at the fleet. The new owners Scoff & Quaff have done it proud. The food excellent (the wraps are great), the setting lovely and staff really friendly. We are regulars at the Ewe & Lamb so were hopeing to be impressed - We were! And we will be back. Just 2 small gripes, there was a smell of sewerage by the sofas on the patio (probably from the toilets) and some soft background music would have been nice.
