Can only assume that the place has had a revamp recently. We had Sunday Lunch and found service, beer and food quality excellent. Lovely location. Great experience.

Visited the wonderful place twice on Saturday. They have not had a great deal of good luck recently, having only just reopened after a fire wrecked part of the pub and they deserve a change of fortune. A large pub on the River Avon with seperate accommodation, a mooring for passing boats, a very large garden with a childrens play area and yes, The mini golf is still there! It is a super place to spend an afternoon. Good choice of Beers, Lagers, Wine and bottled offerings, but mostly run if the mill stuff rather than a beer tickers paradise. In the evening we returned for a meal in the restaurant which to be fair, takes up the majority on the floorspace. The laminated menus look a bit cheap, but we placed our order and when the food arrived, it was truly excellent, wonderful flavoursome Rib Eye Steak, huge onion rings and hot chips that stayed hot. It really was top top quality food and if they can keep up these standards it deserves to be a real destination venue. All the staff were helpful, considerate and numerous. I hope they go from strenth to strenth and the people of the area discover what a wonderful place the have near them.

Nipped in week before last, for couple of pints and a bag of crisps, the Westons SP was good. Crisps not so good, oxidized, oo-er.!!
Any chance? No probs, change my crisps for a fresh pack, thanks girls, no drama just good service.

Before the floods had so much going for it - visited The Fleet in early last year hated it.
However, popped in last week, pleased to see bit of a revival is taking shape. Pub is very clean, redecorated, bar kept tidy, staff willing and pleased to serve, and not too poncey. Outside, very tidy, overflow parking sorted, got rid of that mini-golf.

Is painting over the oak beams a sacrilegious heresy one for Kevin McCloud perhaps.

As nominated driver, didnt get much chance to sample the gear, fair range of ales, some Westons & Thatchers, food looks nice, few veggie items for her indoors, let you know, try it out next week.

Critical report next month. Bout time this old ladies fortunes were revived.

I grew up across the river from the Fleet, it used to be a fantastic pub, packed on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, the food was good as was the beer. The ferry across the river made a trip to the Fleet even more entertaining (plus drunken staggering back through fields of cows). About 10 or so years ago they spent a fair bit of money on the place and spent it on the wrong things (colonades and crazy golf in a village pub anyone?). This pub has the potential to be amazing, excellent location, the ferry, a flat pleasant 2 mile walk from Tewkesbury, the list goes on. Unfortunately the floods of 2007 seem to have killed it.

I went last night for the first time in 5+ years and left feeling depressed that such a mighty pub had fallen so far. The bar, which on a Sunday would've been packed with regulars and visitors was empty bar a slovenly looking youth in a vest eating chips (who seemed to work there) and a rather unpleasant barmaid. The choice of ale is limited to 'Bitter' advertised with a piece of card attached to the pump, no idea what it actually was (it wasn't too bad to be fair) with a number of empty pumps. The inside was grubby and all the furniture in the beer garden had seen better days. The moorings haven't been renewed since the floods thereby stopping any passing nautical custom. We stayed for one drink and left, feeling sad that someone could allow a pub which could make an absolute fortune in one of the best locations in the country to deteriorate so dramatically.

On the plus side we then went to the Village Inn, where the landlord and locals were friendly and welcoming and they had Doom Bar and Wickwar BOB on tap which made me feel slightly better.
