Room Capacity The thatched barn can comfortably seat 57 guests for a wedding breakfast. When planning your layout please refer to our tried and tested table plans (available from our events co-ordinators). For evening receptions we would suggest guest numbers of between 80 and 90 dependant on the season.
Children and Children’s Meals Children are more than welcome to attend your wedding day at The Fleece Inn – children under 11 years may have portions of dishes from the menu and will be charged at 1/2 of the full amount. Under 5’s may order from our restaurant child’s menu, available on request.
Parking As you will have noticed The Fleece Inn does not have its own private car park. Whilst we try our best to time our wedding arrivals at our quieter times, please inform your guests that there is plenty of roadside parking in the village and they may need to spend a few minutes finding a space. No parking on The Fleece premises is available.
Taxis and Carriages One of our assets is our quiet rural setting, therefore it is essential that we respect other residents of the village and we aim to keep noise level to a low at all times. We ask that all taxis are pre-booked prior to the day and that no lifts are organised any later than 11.30pm.

Local Accommodation The Master’s Bed Chamber at The Fleece Inn is generally booked by the bride and groom. We strongly suggest that if you have many guests looking to stay somewhere locally that you endeavour to get them all booked into the same hotel. This enables you to arrange a mini bus to traffic them to and from the pub with ease. We would suggest The Evesham Hotel just 10 minutes down the road, where bookings of 10 rooms or more attract a special rate for Fleece party guests. The Evesham Hotel: 01386 76556 / email@example.com
Grounds and Photographs The Fleece Inn is surrounded by picturesque gardens and we are happy for you and your party to use them for photographs throughout the day, whether you have booked an official photographer or have a member of your family or friends shooting the day.
We are happy for the photographer to come along and see the barn prior to the day and can advise on the best spots for wedding photos.
Please note that any areas to the side of the pub are restricted to just shots of the bride and groom in respect of our neighbours. Please ensure that your photographer is aware of the timings for the day as we need to endeavour to keep to these, in particular the wedding breakfast service times.
Confetti , Lanterns, Party Poppers and Fireworks We would ask that confetti is natural or bio-degradable and that this is released in moderation in the grounds of The Fleece Inn only. Please be aware that due to our rural surroundings we do not allow fireworks or lanterns to be released, we also do not permit party poppers in the barn.
Dogs As we are a country pub we do allow dogs in restricted areas of the pub.
Licensing Hours and Last Orders The Fleece Inn barn is licensed for music and the service of alcohol until 11pm only. Please contact your events coordinator prior to booking any entertainment to clarify suitability.
Disabled Access The Fleece Inn barn is accessible by wheel chair and the surrounding courtyard area is relatively level. There is a disabled toilet across the yard inside the pub.
The General Public The Fleece Inn is a National Trust owned building and therefore cannot be privately hired. Our weddings and functions are organised to work with our quieter times of the day to limit disruption to either party.
