The Fleece Inn is an historic quintessential English Pub with a Medieval Barn & Orchard Garden set in an idyllic country village.

The Fleece Inn is a fifteenth century timber framed mediaeval farmhouse now owned by the National Trust. The Inn nestles on the edge of the Cotswolds within the picturesque village of Bretforton, lying adjacent to the beautiful church of St Leonard's around the village square.

The sixteenth century thatched barn offers a unique and unusual venue for functions, and holds a civil wedding ceremony licence.

Whether it be your wedding ceremony, your reception, or both, we are able to cater for your requirements, from the traditional wedding to mediaeval banquets to hog roasts or anything in between.

The rustic mediaeval thatched barn offers an intimate and unique location for your civil wedding ceremony, with a capacity of up to 50 people for the ceremony, and up to 80 for less formal receptions.

Whether you have a relaxed occasion in mind with a quiet late afternoon ceremony flowing into an evening function with a finger-buffet or if your taste errs more towards a wedding breakfast with a Toastmaster - we can arrange the simplest occasion to the most detailed.
