About The Old Fleece
Sitting half way between Stroud and Nailsworth, this 250 year-old former coaching inn, built in the heyday of the Stroud wool industry, oozes rustic character and charm. The Old Fleece has a very relaxed and homely atmosphere and is run by a team of staff who are friendly, attentive and efficient. Enjoy the lively atmosphere of the popular terrace during the summer months and snuggle up next to our roaring fire when the nights draw in.
Despite receiving two emails (and this one) confirming my online table booking there was no record of it when we arrived. Fortunately we were still comfortably accommodated by cheerful staff and enjoyed a delightful meal. There is however something needing attention in your table booking system.
First time we'd be to the Old Fleece for a few years. Made me wonder why. Service was excellent, food high quality, value pretty reasonable. Wife & I had brought 2 French friends who know their wines. They were impressed too, with a minor reservation that the Sancerre wine chosen should have been colder I am severely/profoundly deaf so had requested a corner table to keep the noise around me to a minimum. That worked quite well, but the current fashion for bare, hard surfaces makes life hard for deaf/hard of hearing people because of the resonance. Soft furnishings, wall hangings and various other simple measures can help. All in all, a good night. We will be back
Very nice Fathers Day meal, good sized portions, nice fish sharing platter for starters, great choice of gins
Excellent Sunday roast (inc vegetarian) and child friendly meal. We were made to feel very welcome as was our dog.
From the friendly welcome, the service and food continued in the same vein. The staff were attentive without being overly so, and the food was excellent. We were a group of eight celebrating an 80th birthday, and ordered a variety of mains, which all arrived together and without any problems. We were given plenty of time for the meal, and were never pressured or rushed. All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening which the staff and food went a long way toward. There were no complaints from anyone from our group, and we would have no hesitation in a return visit.
Great attentive service. Super tasty food and good drink selection. Will be back.
A lovely lunch on a Bank Holiday Monday, very much enjoyed by 3 generations of our family. The staff were friendly and professional. The food was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable. A dog-friendly pub, so if you're not a fan of dogs it might not be the right pub for you.
Our food arrived very very late, we definitely would have appreciated some more communication about what was going on/why it was so late. However, at the end it was dealt with well and overall the food was amazing! we have been before and everything was really good so it won’t put us off from going again
Great roast dinner at our favourite pub. We are treated as regulars even though we only go a couple of times a month.
Great place and highly recommended. Benchmarking food against best restaurants in area - The Passage, Arlingham, Wilder, Nailsworth and Birch’s, Stroud.
We were delighted with both the food and service when we went, with our family, to The Old Fleece for Sunday lunch. Would definitely recommend.
Friendly welcome and delicious food - everything we could have wanted after a long day's walking!
Deliciously different food. Very friendly staff lovely relaxed atmosphere
Our order got forgotten by the kitchen, so we ended up waiting for around an hour for our main course to arrive. Also found the medium-rare steak was far too rare and had to send it back. The waiters were friendly and apologetic, and offered to discount our desserts. But not a great experience so wouldn't recommend to others.
The pork fat needs rendered down more
Enjoyed our Anniversary meal
Lovely meal in a nice setting
Superb meal and great staff. Gonzalo is an asset to the restaurant and the customer service was exceptional. Will come again !
It's really helpful that you can order a starter as a main. Recommend the gammon and chips, I was actually given a steak knife for my gammon steak. Service was friendly and helpful, atmosphere was bustling and happy as always.
Good service. Lovely food. A little noisy, especially for someone wearing hearing aids because of the wooden floor,but overall a pleasant atmosphere.
Lovely country pub with a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food and friendly kind staff.
Staff always friendly and welcoming. Also always find a table when arriving ad hoc.
Booked at short notice and were seated at a lovely window table. Food was excellent, the service was to an equally high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Consistently great dining over many years at The Old Fleece.
