When we booked the only table for 2 available indoors was at midday - but when we left just before 1 pm all of the tables inside were still empty and I only saw one outdoor table occupied!

We met friends for lunch on our way back from a break in North Devon. Last time we visited the Fleece was pre pandemic. We weren't disappointed. Good beer, gins and great pies. Here's to the next time.

The on-line booking procedure was very straightforward and communications were good throughout. The furnishings were basic but that is part of the charm. The beer was in excellent condition and our meals were timely served, hot and tasty. Recommended.

The Fleece is a wonderful location for just about any occasion. The food is fantastic and the staff are attentive. We are veggie/vegan and are never dissapointed. Also - alcohol free, and they have a GREAT range of low/no-alcohol lagers. Cant speak highly enough of it. Just GO. N x

My wife and I have been spending a few days in Evesham. We have never visited the Fleece Inn before and did not know what to expect, but what a wonderful surprise. Everything was first class - from the greeting, to the service, to the food! We had a really enjoyable evening and are very grateful to everyone who made it special. We will certainly be back the next time that we are in the area.

Had roast beef, meal wasn’t very hot, they forgot the cauliflower cheese, we had to ask for it, that was hot but was in fact cheesy mash!
Seemed rushed as there was an event on outside
Parking is always an issue with this place too

We thoroughly enjoyed having lunch with you yesterday. The menu was varied and attractive, and I suggested to my partner that we should start at the top and work down!! I think they call it 'being spoiled for choice'! We will certainly be back.
And, by the way, the on-line table booking system was excellent and completely hassle-free

Great drinks menu, particularly real ale. Food great - steak and ale pie was best I've ever had. Meat well cooked, and tasty, and pastry amazing. My husband had a burger which he said was fab too. We will be going back.

Always a treat to eat at the ancient Fleece, among blackened timber, apotropaic symbols and open fires. A good line up of excellent real ales (a stout or porter always available would be a welcome addition) and the new chef has kept up the high standard of meals. I will continue to make our regular detour when travelling up and down the M5 to continue to experience this outstanding historic pub.

It would be helpful if the phone was answered. I tried phoning seven times over the course of a few hours to try and bring a last minute extra person along to our booking. Sadly no one picked up. We had to leave one family member out. Frustratingly, when we arrived, our table would easily have seated an extra guest, but we couldn’t risk bringing them without knowing. Otherwise, a nice Sunday roast.

What a lovely experience- the food was delicious ( we had Beef, pork and Pirandello all were beautifully prepared) and service was friendly and efficient. We sat outside but we were made very comfortable and it was v cosy! Lots of outside options including horse trailers which looked v cute! Excellent what more can I say.

A little disappointed with our visit today . Where we sat was very cold and the fire was not lit until almost the end of our meal . I appreciate the door was kept open to ensure some airflow but the fire should have been lit prior to start of service .
The food was of a good standard but not really hot and the plates were cold which was a shame .
My husband had a pint of beer and after he had taken a few sips noticed the plastic pump nozzle was at the bottom of his glass . He took it back to the bar where the landlord just poured his remaining beer into a fresh glass and then topped it up . I think he should have been given a completely fresh drink and an apology.
We have eaten there in the past and had a better experience. Sadly the pub did lack its warmth and ambience .

Amazing Sunday lunch- for our anniversary a year after we got married in the barn,
They set up a ‘top table’ for us on our own in the barn, with candles and flowers- it was lovely and we relived a beautiful day. The food was amazing and the outside spaces are special to eat - thank you for looking after us again!
