Review on Fleece Inn
This eighteenth-century Yorkshire pub is a real gem. Punters spill out onto the courtyard and congregate round the barbecue on sunny summer days; there are heated 'umbrellas' on the terrace and a roaring fire in the drinkers' bar when the weather closes in.
Inside it still plays the part of a proper Yorkshire hostelry complete with vintage brasses, real ales and board games, but it's the food which really grabs your attention. Local farms, cheesemakers, moorland shoots and the Whitby fishermen all contribute to the Fleece's larder, and the results are chalked up on blackboards.
Whether you fancy East Coast lobster on sun-blush tomato risotto or a mighty portion of meat and potato pie with mushy peas, the kitchen can deliver the goods. Otherwise, the options might include Yorkshire ham rarebit and lamb hotpot, in addition to a warm salad of chorizo and pears, char-grilled Barnsley chop with slow-roast aubergine and Wrigglesworth mallard with ginger and mandarin oranges. Vegetables are plentiful, desserts could include crème brûlée and there are splendid local cheeses, too. Added to that, the Fleece has a cracking little wine list.
