The Fleece was purchased by the community in 2012 and reopened on 27th July that year. Since then it has been owned by 120 residents of Hillesley and the surrounding area. It is now a friendly, busy Cotswolds pub with good food, real ales, coffee, free Wi-Fi, a beer garden and children's play area. As one of the 120 shareholders my view is somewhat biased, but I think it's now a great pub, living up to the aims of Pub Is The Hub, an organisation that supported us along the way. For instance, a couple of days ago there were six bridge players in the snug, a crowd of cricketers drowning their sorrows in the bar (it had been sunny but their match got cancelled), and over 20 of us playing LPs, singing and dancing (our monthly "Vinyl Night") - not bad for a "quiet" Sunday evening. See the web site for what's on.

After having a lovely sunday lunch in January we went back to this pub again last night - the pub was really busy and the restaurant was fully booked, however we still had a really warm welcome and they managed to squeeze us in to eat in the bar area, which in fact is really cosy and comfortable. The food was superb and the atmosphere was great. I must remember to book next time.

New owners as of 2011 and although varied reviews previously the new people are trying hard and its worth a second chance if put off in the past. Went cos it was listed for Sunday lunch and very inpressed. Nice little library type room rarely used is a great alternative to the main restaurant area

I've just had Sunday lunch at this pub - the food was delicious and I would have given it 10/10 if I'd had the correct telephone number. I tried to book last week as I'd heard it was good, however the telephone number had changed, therefore I had to walk in and take a chance today. I was not disappointed, great atmosphere and decor, a nice mix of people. We will definitely be going again soon to try out the evening dining experience. For information the telephone number is 01453 842072.

I'm baffled by the comment from ryan1966. I went to the Fleece a couple of weeks ago (Jan 2010) and it does not have a fruit machine or dartboard. The service was fine, the fire blazing, the locals friendly and grub good (but still not cheap). When was it ever a "little village restaurant ?" It's always been a pub. Can't help thinking this comment is about a completely different pub.
