the fleece in witney

Overlooking the expanse of Witney’s beautiful Church Green, The Fleece features in Alistair Sawday’s Pub Guide 2013. Since we took it over ten years ago it has twice been voted one of the top twenty pubs in the UK.  It also appears as a pub worth visiting in the Good Pubs Guide 2014.

Loyally supported by the people of Witney we are one of the few places in town where you can sit outside on sunny days, eating, drinking & watching the world go by. We also have a private dining room for meetings or parties & 10 comfortable en suite bedrooms.

the peach family

The Fleece was the second Peach pub to open, over ten years ago. Our aim is to make our pubs great places, full of character, great individual places to eat, drink & sleep; a place for local people, businesses, families & tourists to meet and call their own. Every pub is unique, individually designed to suit their town or village, and respecting each pub’s history.

Peach is not a chain, it’s a group of like-minded enthusiasts. If you like one of our places, you’re almost bound to like the others. Click here to find them!

We will never be the biggest pub company; we’re out for perfection on a small scale, fuelled by passion for good food and drink and a keen interest in protecting the environment.

Our gastro pub in Oxfordshire is open every day from 8am for breakfast, 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.

Duncan Froomes, General Manager

duncDuncan’s always been in hospitality and couldn’t think of working anywhere else.  He started out early, joining Hilton Hotels in his home town of Northampton and worked his way up to supervisor in no time. To broaden his horizons he headed for TGI Friday’s in town, firstly behind the bar where he would make it and shake it, and then on the floor when he ran the show. Serving stars on the ski slopes came next with a season in the States at the uber cool Hotel Jerome Aspen, a luxury bolthole at the foot of the majestic Aspen mountain in Colorado. Back in London, it was a short spell back at TGI’s before a long one at Camden’s Fifty Five Bar and Lounge, where the atmosphere was buzzing and the cocktails flowed every night of the week. After running night clubs in Northampton and helping a friend launch a gastro pub, he came to ours as deputy earlier this year. Now he’s running the place, The Fleece will be the best in town.
