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

We live in Stow, so pretty much know how good each of the restaurants are. It was a busy Sunday today, so this was the only place we could get a table, so we knew we were likely to have fairly average food. Unfortunately, we got what we expected and also were more disappointed than normal. On arrival, wanting a... More

Staff not interested, toilets upstairs, which is difficult if you walk with a stick like me. They want your money, but no effort made to help.

If you believe AA Gill's view of Stow, come to this place for a meal to dispel that image. The guy who runs it ( Johnny ),is a bit of a maverick, and adds real character to the place, which has always been a favourite with locals in the know. He displays a range of interesting ( with out being... More

While on a road trip through the Cotswolds we were lucky enough to choose to stay at "Stow", our B & B, well it didn't do Breakfast, but who cares when the owner can also recommend his own hotel for Dinner. Food was great, we ate here 3 nights. A good mixture of traditional English, Roasts, Pies, etc, and modern... More
