Having heard some of the eerie history of the place on the ghost walk we had to call in for a drink. Hospitable, chatty staff, nice real ales, sloping floors and long thin bars with plenty of newspaper cuttings on the Walls about it's history I really enjoyed our visit to this old historic pub.

Popped into The Golden Fleece mostly to see the skeleton at the bar. Place was very loud and busy but as we were planning to have lunch there we managed to get seated in the back bar area right behind the skeleton. Atmosphere was quieter in the back bar which was a lot better. Ordered a variety from the sandwich menu, I had Cheese and Red Onion Marmalade which was very tasty and filling and also very reasonably priced. Desserts are all homemade too and very nice. Very enjoyable experience and whilst waiting to order at the bar, we witnessed something fall off the shelf (spooky goings on perhaps) staff were friendly and welcoming. The food menu itself is also very interesting and you can read about the history of the pub and it's ghosts inside. Definitely worth a visit!!

We have stayed here 4 times now and even though we have never seen a ghost it's still my favourite place to stay. The rooms have so much character, the pub too with great staff. The breakfast is amazing, it trust sets you up for the day.

This the third time we've stayed here, had the Shambles room this time, Lovely room with a comfy four poster bed, fantastic bathroom, big shower and slipper bath ( just had to try it out)..the eating part of the pub was packed out at all times of the day, which tells you something about the quality of the food and my partner was so pleased it has real ales on tap. There is new management in place and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Will definitely be staying again and we would recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Worth paying for the bigger rooms
