Since the 15th century, the Fleece has been providing a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike. This became a little too warm in the Great Fire of 1688, which destroyed much of the town and was stopped at the edge of what is now the main dining room.
In 2015, the Fleece became a Free House, and then closed for major restoration after a period of neglect. The entire ground floor was restored (including modernising the kitchen and toilets) using the most approved processes to expose and enhance its original beams and other features.Book a table
Our experienced Head Chef Justin takes great pride in using seasonal produce to create menus where the familiar and the comforting are offered alongside many creative and exciting dishes. All these are prepared on site and whenever possible we try to use the plethora of local suppliers who can offer a wide range of fresh foodstuffs. Hence our homemade dishes are made from the finest possible seasonal ingredients, complemented by delicious little extras: such as fresh bread from The Penny Bun in Lowestoft; Alburgh ice cream in a range of delicious, unusual flavours; local Fen Farm butter; and even tomato ketchup supplied by Stokes.
Children are also well provided for and we are proud of our children’s menu, which offers – with as few tweaks as possible – the same delicious, home cooked food as for adults.
NOTE: The menus on our website are sample menus and will have changes. For our up to date menu, come visit us.
