Now and again, when Jill and I need to get out of town, we drive down the Fosse to eat at The Old Butchers. It never disappoints. The menu is well judged, the house wine excellent and excellent value, and the proprietors friendly and professional. It is an exemplary small restaurant and I commend it to you.

just eaten a lovely meal here. Moules Mariniere were fabulous, Game Risotto full of meat. Both excellent. The house wine was very acceptable. the service came with a smile and the background music suited the decor. the whole experience is well worth the cost.

We popped in on a Friday evening and the place was not that busy, just two/three other tables and nobody came in after us at around 8pm that evening. Service was a little slow to start with, we waited ages for our first drink (I think it had been forgotten as a reminder was needed), the food was really good... More

This is a charming eatery with friendly and attentive staff. The menu is simple with wonderful local fare, and an excellent wine list. Dinner was carefully and beautifully presented, and quite delicious. The restaurant however, let itself down by serving our meal, and that of the diners at the table next to us, in little casserole dishes with broken handles.... More

The Old Butchers has had a recent facelift and a new menu. Based on sharing plates we had a superb lunch of hake and clams, quail, scallops and chorizo and pork belly with beans - all cooked to perfection. Great service as well. A great restaurant offering something a bit different in Stow.

The restaurant was opposite our B&B and closed for the first 2 nights of our stay in Stow. We decided to visit on the 3rd night and were not disappointed. The food was very tasty and beautifully prepared. We both had steak which was cooked to perfection and beautifully seasoned. The wait staff were very young but our service was... More

Not as good as previous visits but still good. Didn't seem as organised this time but food made up for it.

If you like highly spiced food and don't like good plain English cooking this is the place for you. The ambiance and presentation of the venue is beautiful and historic but there is no flexibility around choice of listed dishes which are highly seasoned, spicy and inseparable from their sauces. For anyone with food allergies or wanting a simple soup,... More

Having reached Stow in good time allowed us to have a quick look at the shops in Digbeth Street before having our meal after the long drive from Essex. We have been to this establishment a number of times over the years we have been coming to the Cotswolds and have never been let down by the food served here.... More
