Community owned, the Fleece is a superb traditional village pub with very friendly staff. It's not smart - for me that's a good thing - but has a homely, 'lived in' feel. There's a single main bar with separate rooms at either end, including a...More

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. Good food, great beer and a friendly atmosphere.
