Il Vello D'oro Italian Restaurant Melksham

Il Vello D'Oro is an Italian restaurant and pub in the beautiful village of Shaw, near Melksham. It is the perfect venue for a Sunday lunch, family meal out or for a special occasion. Our lovely staff will welcome you and make you feel at home.

Il Vello D'Oro is owned by business partners Ardi and Mali. They are both talented chefs with over 15 years experience in the restaurant trade. They have worked in Bottelino's and Gino's in Bristol, and Farrell's in Keynsham.  Passionate about food, they were delighted to have the opportunity to take over The Golden Fleece and transform it into an Italian restaurant. They carefully thought about the new name and their menu, which has a fantastic choice to appeal to all tastes. The pub is warm and welcoming and the restaurant has been totally refurbished.  Why not come along and give us a try? 


Il Vello D'Oro's Opening hours:

Monday to Saturday; service starts at 12:00 and closes at 14:30. We reopen at 17:00 and close at 22:00. On Sundays; service starts at the normal time of 12:00. However we stay open until 20:00.


My wife and I stopped here for lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised. There is a varied Italian menu, the food was very good and arrived quickly, the staff were friendly, and the place had a big garden and free parking. It also has a nice atmosphere which would be perfect for a family party. Would definitely recommend to others.   Marco R - Trip Advisor
Now under new ownership and the place has been tastefully freshened up. The food and service is great. Well worth a visit.  Ian S - Trip Advisor
Just got home after spending a most enjoyable few hours in the newly named and taken over "Il Vello d'Oro" Golden Fleece. Mushroom starter was lovely, creamy sauce and very flavoursome, my partner asked for a pasta dish as a starter (not on the menu) which was met with no trouble or questions. Main courses consisted of pasta for the young ones, pizzas and steak. All meals were cooked and presented well, dad said his steak was the best he'd eaten for many years!! Waitresses, barman and the new owner are all very polite and attentive. This pub has had some bad press lately but it looks like the new management will be able to turn this around. We wish them well for the future and will definitely be booking a table again on our next trip down to visit family :) Visited March 2016   Jodie R - Trip Advisor
