Me and new wife stopped over for 1 night on route to cornwall. I loved the building and the room we had. It was small but with lots of quality touches. We paid £99 and with an amazing breakfast included in that price. That's stunning value for the area. You can pay more for less in many a place. The... More

Strange one this. After looking at most other reviews, I have to conclude that either I am out of step with current trends (quite possible) or there’s a bit of “Emperor’s New Clothes” syndrome going on here. The Porch House is generally OK, however….. There was nowhere to park whilst we were there so I had to park about 300m... More

We were visiting relatives in the area who had booked this pub for a meal. The service was prompt and welcoming, the men in our group ordered a bottle of wine which unfortunately was not chilled. A bit of a nuisance as we had to arrange coolers filled with ice. The food itself was just fine, starters for those who... More

Great hotel, good lobster, nice room, small but very comfortable and a great breakfast with a wide selection of options cooked and continental ! Parking available to the front and rear :) Morning paper and tea and toast available daily which we requested but it arrived inconsistently, sometimes no paper or no tea and toast, but this was minor as...

I paid £8.50 for a warm chocolate mousse. Possibly one of the worst desserts I have seen in the Cotswolds. Please add some garnish. I have tried there fresh chunky chips and they taste great. Desserts a big no. Not sure if I would recommend for food.

Booked this as it looked lovely on line with comfy chairs and a good choice on the menu. The cheese and leek soufflé was gorgeous and the broccoli and blue cheese soup excellent. The main couses were equally good with lovely soft moist fish. The service was fantastic and nothing too much trouble- will definitely be back!

We stopped in Stow on the Wold by chance looking for somewhere for lunch. What a wonderful find The Porch House was. We found a lovely table outside and our order for drinks was taken promptly. We ordered food and this did not disappoint - 2 platters, one cheese and ham, the other meats and pickles. Both were beautifully presented... More

Popped in to the Porch on Saturday night for an early evening pub meal...on arrival we were told that there was no food service until 1830. After waiting 45 mins for the menu to be delivered we found that they were only serving their restaurants A la carte menu throughout the pub. No chance of a burger, fish & chips... More

This small hotel, pub and restaurant was the first on our 'gourmet trip'. Loved how we were greeted and looked after - where else are you offered tea and toast and your newspaper before you come down for the (beautifully cooked) breakfast? The rooms are smallish - it's an old place - but beautifully appointed and the bed was super... More

Spent an evening with friends after a recommendation. Staff very friendly and don't chase you all the time to finish. Various areas to eat in. Main restaurant, snug bar area, conservatory. Varied menu. Hard to choose as it all looked interesting. Local meats were lovely and tender. Definitely worth going back to. Would choose to stay overnight here, if only... More
