Eat in style – private dining at Ye Olde Fleece Inn.

Great hospitality is our passion at the Fleece. There is nothing we like to see more than friends and family coming together to relax and enjoy our fantastic, locally-sourced food.

Whether you are looking for an intimate dinner or a sparkling celebration, our events team can help you throw a party that everyone will cherish for years to come.

Choosing a recipe for success.

Our team of chefs can provide a wide range of mouth-watering menus to suit your requirements. From sharing platters to buffets, light lunches to three course meals, our locally-sourced food made from the finest seasonal ingredients is sure to impress your guests.


We’d love to hear what you’ve got planned, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Great parties happens in great spaces.

We have three exclusive dining spaces available, each with their own unique character.

The Westmorland Suite

(Up to 12 people)

Classically decorated with an open log fire, this cosy room lends itself to great food, great wine and great friends. You bring the company and let us take care of the rest!

The Wainwright Gallery

(Up to 40 people)

When it comes to the wow factor, our Wainwright Gallery delivers in spades. With a stunning balcony and room for up to 40 people, it is a superb venue for any occasion. There is even a full AV suite with a large 3m by 2m screen connected to a state of the art 6,500 lumen projector, giving you plenty of options for entertaining guests.

Herdwick Restaurant

(Up to 60 people)

Spread over the upstairs level of the inn, the Herdwick Restaurant is the perfect space for those larger gatherings. The original features and character in the restaurant are a reminder to guests that they are dining in one of the Lake District’s most historic buildings – how will your celebrations compare to those of the seventeenth century?
