We stopped by at The Porch House for a quick drink after a busy day in the Cotswolds and before we returned to our hotel. Old beams, wooden oak tables and lots of hardback books surrounded us whilst we enjoyed our drink. A warm welcome from the bar person and a seat by the window to watch the world go... More

What a charming interior and exterior, just what we were looking for in a quiet pub,and it turned out to be the oldest Inn in England. Great place for a local ale and scrumpy. I would like to go back and try the bread I saw there.

Lovely hotel in the middle of Stow on the Wold. We stayed in room 8 which was a feature room and well worth paying the extra for. Room was beautifully decorated, large and quiet. The bathroom was fab and roll top bath is always a winner with me! Thank you will definitely be returning.

Upon arrival we weren't particularly greeted very warmly. A young girl checked us in, but left us standing around the public bar whilst she entered the details into a computer. I knew before we arrived that the rooms were on the small side, however, I had not quite envisaged exactly how small room 14 would be. Put it this way,... More

Stayed in one of the specialty rooms. Large bedroom with beautiful beams on the ceiling. Was delighted at how charming it was! The bathroom was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was also good. I was very impressed!

The location of this hotel is perfect for a weekend. The room we stayed in was great. The bath in the bedroom was a novelty, the bathroom itself was spacious and modern. Loved the tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet despite being situated above the bar.

Turned up here unannounced without my usual TA research but guessed by the happy throng that it was half-decent, and, so it turned out to be much more than that. Nicely sympathetic decor to what is obviously a very old building. Compact menu but good variation, good specials. Food was all excellent and service efficient. Pleased with our choice and... More

Our first impression was fabulous. Full of historic charm we were transported back in time. We were met with a warm welcome and were so lucky to have been upgraded to room 1 (because we left the dog at home, although the other rooms look lovely too) Stunning, spacious, clean and luxurious. Soft white fluffy towels, roll top bath with... More

We ENJOYED our first visit to the Porch House, particularly Room number 1, which is of one of the feature rooms of the pub/hotel. There was a broken tap the first time we visited last year but we ignored that, as its was such a great room. However this year the tap was still bust, the light bulb didn't work... More

Genuinely 'oldy-worldy' with very comfortable and immaculate rooms, excellent food and staff. We had a great stay and will return in the near future. You must book in advance as we spoke to many disappointed customers who tried to book too late.
