Will Larter left this review about Ye Olde Fleece Inn

This was going to be the last pub on my Kendal crawl, but when I approached at about 9:15pm, the new management team were just leaving for a well-earned pint at the Rainbow next door. They explained that, having moved in recently, they had been doing a lot of cleaning up and would be open for normal business as soon as possible. In fact, by the time you read this I expect they're trading as normal. This is one of many interesting old buildings on Kendal's main street, and I hope to return for a beer one day soon.

The above was my attempted visit here on 1st July 2013. I have since been back and actually got inside the door and even approached the bar. The smell of wood polish was overpoweringly strong - not what I was expecting. There were two customers, and a bored young woman was behind the bar. On the bar was a solitary beer - Youngs Bitter, brewed in Bedford. What is it about pubs in Kendal and the nationally available bog standard beers that they sell - or in the case of the Olde Fleece, don't sell. I just walked out.
