Location and contact

A warm and welcoming Cotswold village pub that is owned by its community. In 2012, 120 local people clubbed together to purchase and re-launch our only village pub, and since then The Fleece has gone from strength to strength. In October 2018 we will receive CAMRA's Best Pub in the South West award. Good food, great beer and a friendly atmosphere are guaranteed.

A real community pub. Food is always good, service can be a little slow, but worth the wait. Friendly and a good atmosphere.

Didn't realise it was a community owned pub when we booked, but it shows in the charming, helpful, if a little amateurish service - which is no bad thing sometimes. There was an interesting range of real ales and a surprisingly ambitious menu, from which...More
