The Fleece Inn is a public house located in Bretforton, Worcestershire in the Vale of Evesham. The building is a half-timbered one. It is over six hundred years old. It has been a pub since 1848. It is now owned by the National Trust. The Fleece Inn is distinguished by its homely character. Pewter mugs, brass and copper utensils, pottery and china, oak settles and benches, a spinning wheel, all contribute to the homely atmosphere.[3] The inn was damaged by fire on 27 February 2004. Repairs and rebuilding began on 1 November 2004. The Fleece officially reopened on 18 June 2005 with a new roof and other upgrades.[4]
