About the Pub


Opened in July 2020 as a 'British' pub with seasonal food using local ingredients. The four handpumps offer changing beers from Cumbrian breweries. Quirky indoor spaces feature original fulling mill machinery and an extensive outdoor terrace overlooks Stock Gill and the millrace with working wheel.

"The Flying Fleece pub is within a restored Grade II listed building dating from the 15th Century and is downstream to the famous Bridge House. The mill was refurbished in 1990 with an imaginative framework of green oak to provide a complex of split level floors for the Glasshouse Restaurant."
