The Fleece Inn is a traditional country inn, situated in the idyllic and historic village of Dolphinholme, near Lancaster.
With its stylish charm, our traditional English Inn offers a wonderful and relaxing location for you to drink, eat and sleep in the heart of the beautiful, Lancashire countryside.
Being in the extremely privileged location that it is, The Fleece sits right on the doorstep of the Forest of Bowland (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and just 7 miles from the wonderfully historic city of Lancaster centre.
If you choose to venture a little further afield, you could take a scenic drive (just over 20 miles) and immerse yourself in the rolling hills and tranquil valleys of The Yorkshire Dales National Park, or head just 30 minutes north and you’ll be touching the southern edge of Cumbria’s wonderful Lake District.
At The Fleece Inn, you can enjoy some of the finest local produce, cooked to a very high standard by talented Head Chef, Ian Manning and his team. Honest food with a minimum of fuss – alongside always popular pub classics, you’ll find an exciting selection of international themed dishes, as well as a good choice of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.
Of course, the bar at The Fleece Inn is well-stocked with top quality, locally brewed beers, as well as a fine selection of wines supplied by award-winning fine wine merchants, D Byrne & Co, Clitheroe. A warm welcome awaits at The Fleece Inn, visit us soon.
