It’s a family tradition to visit this pub every year and never does it disappoint. On our visit to the cotswolds this time, we ended up coming here twice in two days and it was beautiful. The staff are lovely, the food is great and it just has a magical ambience I’ve never found anywhere else. Sitting outside on a summers evening is a must! Plus, fantastic vegan food too. I enjoyed the vegan pie, and the moving mountains plant based burger on day 2. The vegan sticky pudding is not to be missed! Was lovely to see so many options. Thank you for keeping this special place as wonderful as it’s always been x

Super meal in the beautiful orchard at The Fleece Inn in Bretforton last night. Although it was busy, as you'd expect on a lovely summer's evening, there was very little wait for drinks or for our food which came promptly. The ordering app works really well, although we still preferred to order our food from one of the delightful waitresses who are now armed with iPads for efficient & speedy ordering. We had poached smoked haddock with panko-breaded Vale asparagus, smoked salmon salad, the Moving Mountains veggie burger, and the asparagus-season special pizza with parma ham. All delicious. And our kids made light work of their halloumi sticks, fish & chips and pizzas. At a time when the whole hospitality industry is struggling to recruit staff, you couldn't tell at The Fleece last night. Very well done!

Still wondering how could they have a slot for a couple for lunch on a glorious bank holiday day, yet glad they had. And glad we found it, despite satnav saying our dedtination was in the middle of nowhere (don't trust it and check your way beforehand).
Not your regular pub - much more restaurant quality, and I loved the asparagus specials. Very good local ales, while wine selection was small but good and very honestly priced. Service was great and the inside dining room looks like a Tudor period drama set - apart from the fact that it is original.
Only negative side, it's not closer to home to visit regularly!

We were drving around the Evesham area trying to find one of the old asparagus pubs, and the name of the Fleece popped up. So off we went to find it. Tucked away in a corner off the main road. The parking was difficult as the inn does not have its own parking.But we made it and went into the yard area. There was plenty of seating here and in the garden, so we were happy to be directed to a table. Two or three young women were serving very efficiently and there was a good choice of local bitters and ciders. The pub had a feel of Old England about it and this was a most enjoyable visit.
