MOSSLEY pub The Fleece Inn has made it into CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide for the fifth year running.The Stamford Street hostelry was first registered as a public house in 1808 and is the cheapest CAMRA multi-award-winning pub in top Mossley.
Licensee Mike Tebbs, 57, is delighted with the latest inclusion in the book described as the “beer drinkers’ bible”.
“It feels fantastic so thank you to the customers for supporting us and getting us into the Good Beer Guide again,” he said.
The Fleece is a family, friendly bar offering real ales and ciders, along with traditional pub games such as darts and pool.
It also hosts gin and cocktail nights; cider and beer festivals and is holding a Roaring 20s themed New Year’s Eve party.
This popular boozer also holds charitable events including an annual Macmillan coffee morning fundraiser.
In 2017, the Fleece won the High Peak, Tameside and North East Cheshire branch’s Pub of the Year and nominated for the overall Greater Manchester Pub of the Year.
Previously the only Mossley inn to make the guide, in 2020 the Fleece is joined by the Church Inn, a corner terrace pub taking its name by neighboring St John’s Church and the Rising Sun pub, both on Stockport Road.
