Booked this almost by default as the nearest reasonably priced option to Lyme Regis (about a 15 minute drive) at a weekend but were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the rooms and the very warm welcome. The 5 bedrooms are built in a seperate block behind the pub and are built and furnished to a very high quality. Lovely...

We stayed here for only one night but were very pleased with both the welcome and the accommodation. After a hectic day and arriving later than planned, we received an excellent welcome from owner, locals at the bar and the staff. A special mention and thanks are due to Janet, the barmaid/waitress, who was very patient, kind and cheerful, efficient...

This is an exceptionally friendly family run restaurant. Although it has a bar this is primarily a restaurant. Sunday lunch was as usual a special deal. However, there was a wide choice of starters, main courses and puddings. We were a large party so inevitably service was not as fast as it would be for a table of two. Nevertheless...

We had a fantastic meal here, greeted with a smile from the owners and fantastic service throughout. I can't speak highly enough of the food and service at this restaurant. The bar had a couple of regulars who were all very friendly and a great atmosphere. The owners provide accommodation in a converted skittle alley, these all look very nice...

We could only stay at the Golden Fleece for one night but we are very glad that we did. The room was large, comfortable and very clean with parking outside the room. This place is a hidden gem in the middle of some lovely countryside. The food was excellent and there was a good choice at reasonable prices, very good...

We stayed for one night in the bed and breakfast. The rooms are spotless and the decor is of an extremely high standard. The beds are enormous and so comfortable. The bathroom is stunning with a lovely hot shower. The finishing touches were fabulous with bottled water tea coffee hot chocolate and biscuits. And then you have the pub itself....

My husband and I decided we needed to 'run away' for a few days and found this gem on the internet. The room are bright, modern and of a really good size, with a nice touch of paperback books left in the drawers. The food in the pub was lovely, the menu changed slightly each day so it wasn't boring,...
