The Fleece Inn - Bretforton

A brilliant traditional English pub set in the lovely village of Bretforton. Owned by the National trust its a very active pub which offers a lot to the local community. They organise a lot of different events to reflect the seasons.

The bar is very traditional, historic may be a better word to use to describe it. It has an ever changing mix of Real Ales and cider. The pub has also started brewing it's own of both. You will normally find 5 to 6 ales and up to 3 ciders. The Ales change daily but you will normally find beers from Hook Norton and Purity Breweries.

Food is great. Using locally sourced produce it is very good for a lunchtime snack or evening meal.

It has a large barn for events, which there seems to be a constant stream of throughout the year. A few of the last events when I was there an Apple and Cider festival with a traditional cider press and shredder set up to show the cider making process. The asparagus auction was also very enjoyable to mark the asparagus harvest.
