user reviews of the Fleece Inn, Holme

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Three beers Ė Jennings Cocker Hoop, Banks' Bitter and Wychwood Dirty Tackle. The Cocker Hoop was cool, clear, good head Ė and tasted like vinegar. It was my mate's and he wouldn't take it back. The Wychwood was fine. Banks is crap anyway so we didn't try it. It looks as if they have some sort of tie with Jennings or a wholesaler. Beer at £3.30/pint for this is ridiculous Ė go into Holmfirth instead for a drink.
The pub's ok although it's very pub/restaurant-ish, another one that tries too hard to be a country pub when it's not.
The food was also good, also overpriced, limited choice and not modern - just pub food really.
There's not much point going to the Fleece unless you're in the exact area for another reason.

I like The Fleece, the food is lovely as are the staff. I've also been to the quiz even though I lived miles away at the time and it was a really friendly night.

Iíve been frequenting the Fleece for over twenty years and at lunchtime and in the early evening, itís probably true to say that itís geared towards dining rather than drinking. After 9pm however, it reverts to being a comfortable village pub frequented both by locals and others from the surrounding area. Youíve only got to try the quiz night each Thursday to see that. The beer is by no means the cheapest in the area (you can easily find it for 50-60p a pint less) but what the Fleece does offer are guests such as Hook Norton and Brains which are not usually available locally. I for one am willing to occasionally pay that little bit more to try something different but whatever you choose, you can guarantee that it will be in excellent condition.

A last word on the food. The fact that a relatively remote pub is so well patronised speaks volumes both about the quality and more importantly the value of whatís on offer. Three of us ate at the Fleece a couple of weeks ago, arriving at 7.30 and leaving after eleven, and the total bill for all three of us for food and drink for the whole evening was a shade over forty quid. Highly recommended!

Lovely pub, welcoming for families and in a great "passing through" location. Not a huge drinking pub, it did seem to focus more on food and the dining area was full when we arrived, although we didn't have to wait too long and the dishes of sweets at the bar kept the kids occupied! Food superb; limited vegetarian options but what there was on offer was delicious and I was reliably informed that the pie of the day was amazing! Very nice all round.

Some may think the name refers to the abundance of sheep in the area, but no-one will be any doubt after a visit that it refers to the bar prices. At 2.70 for a normal strength bitter, this is the most expensive pint I've had in the North. Almost all seats in the pub were reserved for diners, though there was no-one at all eating when I was in. The only people in were tourists, presumably the locals drink down the hill in Holmbridge. 3 real ales - Banks, Black Sheep and a guest. An idyllic setting though, what a shame.
