Wonderful hotel, restaurant & pub in a great location. Stow is a lovely town and the Porch House is a super place to stay, eat & drink. Firstly, the rooms are recently re-done in classic style, very boutique & tasteful. Our room (6) looked out over the main street, but not noisy. Very comfortable, everything you need, decorated to a... More

This is a stunning little hotel with beautiful rooms and a great pub for a relaxing in after a lovely day walking in the Cotswold. The breakfast was great and the restaurant was definitely worth a visit.

8 of us and our dog walked into Stow for a lunch and to watch some of the Cheltenham racing. We can honestly say that the staff behind the bar were exceptional. l had worn my wellingtons to the pub and was astounded when the manager actually went and bought some slippers because my feet were getting warm for me...

We visited this pub twice while staying just outside Stow. On the second occasion eight of us spent the whole afternoon here as we wanted to watch the last day of racing at Cheltenham. The manager and all his staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The Inn is totally stunning and... More

We stayed in one of the feature rooms for our anniversary. The room was really big with a sofa and free standing bath. We spent the afternoon playing board games by the fire eating home-made pork scratchings. Lovely tea and toast delivered to the room and then had the most amazing pancakes. We both had such a lovely stay and... More

Beyond Charming! Fabulous room and wonderful breakfast...great staff and Bobby, the driver they use, is the best! He took us all around Burton and Slaughters to show us around and then we walked everywhere and then called Bobby to come pick us up...he took us back for our bags at the Inn and then to the train depot... a gem...

We stayed on a Sunday night breaking the journey from the south coast to Cheshire after seeing a review in the Telegraph. We were checked in by i-pad in a friendly bar before being shown to our superior room (5) right at the top of the building. .It was compact, full of atmosphere and oak beams. It was well equipped...

We have just stayed here for two nights and it ticks all the boxes. All you would want from an old country inn. Delightful rooms throughout, thoughtfully decorated, lots of nooks and crannies, open fires and log burning stoves, lovely food and friendly staff. Be sure to find the snug at the back which is a cosy room for playing... More

We arrived for our stay at The Porch House. It was a busy Saturday and there was nowhere to park so we left the car up a side street and went in through the front door. There was no signage as to where to go and we wandered into the bar where we checked in with one of the barstaff.... More
