We had the good fortune to visit the lovely cotswold village of Bretforton and discovered this wonderful and ancient Inn nestled in the centre of the village. What a treat. Great selection of ales and the food was lovely and beautifully presented. The staff were very attentive and considering the quality of the food and the location, the bill was... More

we visited The Fleece as part of the Evesham Morris Weekend of Dance . We also enjoyed our visit in the afternoon so decided to go back for our evening meal.

Many thanks for taking the time to review the Fleece Inn. I was both shocked and alarmed to learn of your unsatisfactory visit; your experience was clearly unacceptable for which I apologise unreservedly.

We visited here as part of the National Morris Weekend in Evesham. We danced here during the day and liked the setting so much that 15 of us booked for an evening meal for 7pm in the Barn (which is separate to the main pub). It's a beautiful pub in a lovely setting. We arrived just before 7pm and found... More

Having visited this pub (which dates from the times of Chaucer) years ago, I wanted a return visit having remembered it quite fondly. Very, very disappointed. While the building and grounds had not changed, the staff were very cold. The lady sitting next to us was told to be quiet due to a wedding happening in the nearby barn. The... More

When you arrive at such a lovely and historic inn set in an idyllic village location, the last thing you expect is to find a group of foul-mouthed men sat outside, clearly the worse for drink. Presumably they were locals, but their loud, obscene language sort of took the gloss off our first impressions of the pub. Drunks aside, there’s... More

The Fleece is a real character. It celebrates its heritage, of course, but it's no museum - this is a lively working pub. There's a good selection of real ales and ciders which change regularly. I ate there during the asparagus festival. The menu offered a great range of local asparagus dishes and there was Morris Dancing and folk-singing during... More
