Fleece Hotel RIchmond | The Fleece Hotel | Hotel Restaurant Bar

Welcome Back!

As you will no doubt have read in the press, the hospitality sector is facing an unprecedented staffing crisis at the present time along with many other sectors in the UK economy. With many of The Fleece’s seasonal workers returning to college and university this month, we are having to change our hours of service because we simply do not have the necessary numbers of staff to maintain our high standards.

Bar Open
From 5pm Tue-Sat, Sunday from 11 until 4pm

Food Served*
Friday PM, Saturday All day, Sunday Lunch

* This is only applicable to non-hotel guests. For hotel guests we also serve food from 5pm Tue, Wed & Thursday.


The Fleece Hotel Yorkshire Kitchen brings you a range of delicious hearty dishes using fresh ingredients from our local producers and suppliers.  Our daytime menu includes a range of lunch options from burgers & pastas to soups, salads and sandwiches. On Thursday, Friday and Saturdays our evening menu brings you a regularly changing collection of amazing food dependent on the season and freshness.  Weekends are all about spending time with friends and family and the Fleece Sunday Lunch is the perfect way to do it. Cheese & meat platters are available from Sunday to Wednesday and a mid-week menu available Wednesday evening.


You won’t need to count sheep when you stay at The Fleece! Every bedroom has been newly renovated to bring you all the comforts of home with big comfortable beds for those that need to sleep, to stylish desks for those who need to work. We also have two adjoining rooms for families. All our rooms are ensuite, pet friendly, and include fantastic walk in showers or luxurious baths in our deluxe rooms. Join us at The Fleece and treat yourself to some real Yorkshire hospitality.


For centuries, stories have been shared in The Fleece Hotel. Stories between friends, families, from young to old, from walker to walker. We welcome you all, including your lovely dogs, to take a seat, take a drink or some food, and while away the day. We take particular pride in our coffee where we have teamed up with locally-based artisan coffee roasts, Lonton Coffee, who supply delicious, ethically-sourced coffee. So with everything from morning coffee to the best wines and cocktails in town, The Fleece is the place to meet, drink and be merry.


Our story

The Fleece Hotel has been a part of the town of Richmond for nearly 350 years. It’s part of the fabric of this wonderful town.

This famous establishment has now been brought back to its full glory and, at the same time, provide the town with a new destination to meet, eat, drink and sleep.

Our doors are now open to welcome you for a coffee with your family, a glass of wine or fine ales with friends or a meal packed full of Yorkshire goodness. If you’re a visitor to the town then why not spend the night with us in our boutique hotel only seconds away from the town square and moments away from the Yorkshire Dales.

We look forward to welcoming you and helping us create more ‘yarns’ for years to come.
