Rod Undy and Karen McGeoch took over running the Fleece on 5th September.  This is an exciting new chapter in the story of our community pub, and we are all excited to welcome them.

A welcome from Karen and Rod

It’s hard to believe that a short while ago Rod and I were contemplating life here at The Fleece Inn and now it’s actually happening. We’re in, and things are finally taking shape.

The kitchen and all the kitchen equipment is undertaking an overhaul that will improve the way we work and hopefully provide a better workspace to create the lovely wholesome pub food we look forward to delivering – consistently. The cellar has been reorganised to operate efficiently with new adaptations that will improve the quality of the beer we sell and provide a more effective workspace. We want to increase the choice of ales as well, so that we can introduce a more extensive range of guest ales.

We are also preparing for a visit from Oakham Ales - who extend the ‘Oakademy of Excellence’ Award to those pubs that deliver their ale in ‘tip top’ condition with regards to temperature and clarity etc. Our little Ale House in Mumbles scored a massive 99% and was the second pub in Wales to achieve this award. So we’re also hoping to do well here at The Fleece.

Rod and I love the community spirit here in Hillesley and our commitment to making The Fleece Inn the hub of the village is top of our list. We have a great team behind us and truly appreciate the welcome we have received from everyone particularly our staff all of whom have made the transition as seamless as possible.
