Excellent dinner

We dropped in for a drink during the day & after looking at the menu which offered a good selection in a reasonable price range we booked for our evening meal. We liked this place because of the warm welcome & helpfulness of the staff. So, at 8:00 pm we arrived & our table by the widow was... read more

The food I order was burn in some parts, the bread still had ice in the middle. The toilets are upstairs, not easy for every one. My friend said there was a toilet in the Gent's that was overflowing. The hand drier wasn't working. When we went to pay, I refused to pay for my meal and then their card... More

Plenty of places to eat in Stow, but this is one of the most friendly and reliable ones. Menu not particularly original by today's gastro pub standards, but everything is freshly prepared and well cooked. Cosy dining room/bar area with open fire on cold days. Just the spot for a pint and some good grub after visiting excellent local shops.... More

Stopped over last Wednesday evening, not my first visit as have an apartment, but anyone who knows Stow knows it's quiet this time of year . And it was quiet and tbh as we were late I would have had no problem being turned away ! However, we were welcomed with open arms, had the best seat in the house... More

We were a visiting choir performing a charity Carol concert in St Edward's church andThe Talbot were booked to provide us lunch. We were given a beautiful private room upstairs where we waited on by a delightful young lady and were served with delicious food and drink. Nothing was too much trouble. Several of us returned post concert where we... More

Visited Stow with my cousin and called in at the Talbot for an early evening meal. We booked a table positioned in the window looking out onto the historic square. I hadn't expected anything special as the pub was obviously the local and appeared to be just cosy. However, the meal was delicious and highly enjoyable. We were welcomed by... More

We ended up here because other restaurants were too busy. We ate from the tapas menu, sharing dishes between four of us. The dishes were overpriced and generally of poor quality. We chose meatballs as one dish which included three meatballs. Would it have been difficult to serve four so we could have one each? It certainly would have been... More
