I treated a client to a pint at the Fleece, where better to discuss a new idea! We just sat in the bar, using the wifi, it was very pleasant! Very helpful and friendly staff. The special board had a 'chip shop platter' I'm coming back soon!

Visited with the family after searching and we was not let down. The food was amazing and reasonable prices. The staff were friendly and could not complain at all. Would recommend to anyone and they hold entertainment night at the weekend and it's set in a lovely location of boxford opposite the river and not hard to find.
