The menu in the restaurant is limited & to be told there was no more smoked salmon or sirloin steak at 8pm was a disappointment. The desserts were very poor; a crumble which had a meagre scattering of biscuit crumbs and sour fruit & a butterscotch cheesecake that was tasteless and stodgy. The service staff were pleasant but inexperienced. The... More

Had an early dinner here with my sister, food was really lovely. My sister has a wheat intolerance but the chef easily accommodated her chosen meal of cod, which we both had and I can easily say it was totally delicious and cooked to perfection. All the food was beautifully presented and the waitress was friendly and attentive.

We arrived at the Porch House after a 7 hour drive from Scotland and were escorted to our room by a very charming young man. The room ( no 14 ) was tiny and despite our escort attempting to brighten the room by failing to switch on two lights he beat a hasty retreat leaving my wife and I the... More

My wife and I stopped here for a light Lunch the other day and although the food was OK, the service was poor. We sat at a table outside enjoying the lovely weather and when I went to the Bar to order food and drinks, I had to wait a long time; without the young blond lady with glasses working... More

We stayed at The Porch House on Sunday night (21st September 2014). The building is beautiful, renovated to a high standard with lots of original features. The staff were friendly and the service was good. Our room (14) was out the back, small but very nicely done with quality fixtures and fittings. The bed was comfy and we had a... More

I found this pub in a Telegraph Survey about the best pubs in the Cotswolds and thankfully it lived up to it's reputation. We went to celebrate my birthday and so were a relatively large party. I was recommended to book The Parlour as it also came with it's very own snug so was brilliant for the children and babies.... More

We decided to choose this inn as per the title, thinking of the history. It is full of quirky little areas to sit and relax and enjoy either meals from the restaraunts or bar meals. Their ham sandwiches coming with chips were so lovely my wife had them two nights on the trot! Talking of food all their breakfast ingredients... More

My wife and I recommend the Porch House set in Beautiful Stow on the Wold Cotswold. You won't be disappointed if you like old world stone floors old beams and character throughout. We would imagine in the winter months with all the wood burners and open fires it to be nice and cosy. The food service and staff were all... More

we just finished 5 delightful days with James and his team at The Porch House. Nothing but great things to stay. We were in room 1 and the couple with us stayed in room 9. Both "feature" rooms and worth the small extra cost. Our room was at the back of this small, recently refurbished inn. Very quiet. Bathroom was... More

Stayed her in August for a weekend getaway with my niece. We intended to use it as a base then head out elsewhere for the evening but it was so perfect, we stayed all night. On arrival, The Porch House is really cute with wooden floors and exposed beams. The bedrooms was well laid out and what has to be... More
