COVID restrictions at The Fleece

Following the Government’s announcement on 22 September 2020, we are having to change the way The Fleece operates. 

From Thursday 24 September 2020:
  • All customers will require to be seated and will be served at their table by a member of staff.  No customers at the bar please.
  • Customers outside can telephone their order to the bar (01453 520003).
  • Face coverings need to be worn at anytime you are not seated so when entering/leaving and moving around the premises.

These changes are in addition to the need to sign in for track and trace purposes - every individual must sign in via the track and trace app or by signing in on the clipboard provided on the table next to the bar. Everyone must follow both social distancing and ‘The Rule of 6’.

All the above measures are in place to keep us all safe and allow us to keep your community pub open. Thank you all for your patience in these difficult times. 

The kitchen will not be re-opening just yet, we will keep everyone posted on any developments.

Once again, a huge thank you for everyone’s continued support and kind words. We look forward to welcoming everyone back.

See you soon,

Rod & The Fleece 

 to The Fleece, Hillesley. We hope you will be delighted with our quintessential Cotswold pub. Our commitment to our customers is first and foremost and as a team we strive to ensure that your experience here will be the best possible.

An inclusive Pub
Our aim is to offer an inclusive and friendly environment to both our local community and visitors’ further afield. Whilst we welcome families we kindly request that children are supervised and respectful of the pub environment.

Your four legged friends are welcome too – fresh water and dog treats are always on tap. We require dogs to be kept on a lead and clear of walkways so as not to a cause a trip hazard to other customers.  We do not allow dogs in the restaurant areas.

We are fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful countryside with the Cotswold Way just minutes from our doorstep. Walkers are kindly requested to leave muddy boots outside or in the porch.

Food and Drink
Our passion for Real Ale sits high on our priority list and is a strong contributing factor to winning the Dursley and District CAMRA pub of the year 2018 that was announced just 15 months into running the business - not a bad accolade!

We have up to seven Real Ales available at any one time and amongst the line up are our regulars: The Wye Valley Brewery’s, Butty Bach (Welsh for ‘little friend’) and Sharps Atlantic. The remaining line up showcases some of the best ales from around the UK and we actively encourage customers to sample them – or even try a Paddle of 3 Thirds.
