Pubs are closing at an alarming rate in our region but there are places that are bucking the depressing trend and The Fleece Inn at Hillesley, close to Wotton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire, is one such place.
Today it received a very special visitor, to find out what it's secret to success is - it was no other than the Prince of Wales himself.
Prince Charles was there to unveil a plaque to mark the reopening of the pub after it was bought by the local community four years ago with the help of the organisation called 'The Pub is the Hub', of which Prince Charles is patron.
Experienced landlords were brought in to run it after local people struggled.
Earlier when Prince Charles arrived children from the village's only primary school sang to him. They had great things to say about him such as "he's quite handsome".
The pub has been in the village since the 17th century and is now the only one left open in the parish.
It was a visit that combined many of Prince Charles' likes. Locally made produce - the beer - and an unfussy, friendly atmosphere devoid of pool tables and juke boxes. His darts won't win any prizes, but the locals approve of his choice of hostelries.
