Overlooking the expanse of Witney's beautiful Church Green, The Fleece is a fine Georgian building, originally the home of Clinch's brewery and reputedly a favourite watering-hole of Dylan Thomas when he lived in South Leigh. Since we took it over five years ago it has twice been voted one of the top twenty pubs in the UK. It also features in Alistair Sawday & in the 2008 Michelin Guide. The Fleece is loyally supported by the people of Witney & is one of the few places in town where it is possible to sit outside on sunny days, eating, drinking & watching the world go by. As well as the bustling bar & restaurant, we also have a private dining room for meetings or parties & 10 recently-refurbished en suite bedrooms. The pub is open every day from 8 am, with lunch served from noon & hot food available all day. We take huge pride in serving the best ingredients we can find, from ethical producers, freshly prepared by our chefs. Whether you pop in for a pint, a business lunch or a special dinner, we promise you a friendly welcome. All day long. We look forward to seeing you soon! Aimee, Sarah, Susan, Alistair & the team.
The Fleece is at the top end of the high street in a wonderful setting overlooking the Church Green. We think we are easy to find so just head for the town centre, look for the church and the green and we are halfway along on the left hand side.
Our menus will always make the most of seasonal ingredients, (this ensures we avoid air-freighting and keeps us in touch with the cycle of the year) while combining the best of great British cooking and influences from around the world that are now part of our culture. We don't have a children's menu, because we think they should have the opportunity to eat food that's as good as yours, but our chefs are happy to make smaller portions or simplified versions of anything on our menu.
