The Fleece Inn, September 1998

A very famous pub dating back at least 500 years and you can certainly believe it when you enter the National Trust owned Fleece Inn. You'll find the pub situated a few miles east of Evesham off the main road (B4035) in the corner of the village square. The dimly lit rooms retain much of the original antique furnishings. There's a priceless set of Stuart pewter on view as well as a very old grandfather clock. The ceilings are beamed and low, the floor covered with worn flagstones. Seating wise there's an interesting curved settle beside one of the inglenook fireplaces.

They serve a good range of beers from mainly local breweries and there were certainly a handful of hardened drinkers by the bar that seemed to have enjoyed a fair few of them!

Foodwise the service is known to be slow, but this is because the kitchen is small and there is no real way to increase the size of it. The menu is fairly standard with a selection of freshly cut sandwiches, ploughmans and main courses like scampi and lasagne for around 5 pounds.

There's also seating outside in the large orchard which soon fills in Summer. They've also a restored timbered and thatched barn that you can hire out for functions.

Certainly a very unusual pub that's been seen in films on TV with good beer and history oozing out of every crevice.
