A lovely old pub with pleasant service and good food. My husband and I both had the Sunday roast with all the trimmings, which was served quite quickly and was very filing, with lots of meat. Recommended.

We met some friends of Canada here for dinner, small menu, hearty meals, good food & great service. Old pub in center of Stow. Just comfortable and relaxing. We ate in the pub but apparently can eat upstairs too. Pub was buzzy. Did have tv there but fortunately wasn't distracting.

I stayed there for 3 nights. The first night I stayed in a room so small, I felt like a Gulliver. I had to stoop to enter the room and standing up in the bathroom, my head literally touched the ceiling. I was moved to a much larger and spacious room the 2nd night. It was very hot (by English...

Lovely old world pub, hot food, with good, quick, service, and good ales in a nice Cotswold location. We would definitely visit here again. Free Wi-Fi and dog. friendly. It is rare these day-to-day find service this good and food served in traditional style with good portions. Highly recommended.

My wife and I were in Stow on The Wold for a visit. Visited the bar/restaurant for late luncheon. It was superb. The staff, beverages, service, were the best in a long term. We can recommend this place very strongly. Visit.

We stayed here for a couple of days while in the Cotswolds. Very nice room on the top floor, spacious with a bath and shower. They have parking in back for customers. It's in the middle of town. The breakfast was good.

Staying in this lovely town for a week's holiday and decided to go to this hotel to try out their Sunday "roast dinner". Were given a table squeezed in between a party of four and the coffee machine. Door wide open and there was quite a draft despite the day being really warm. However it was around 7:30 pm so... More

What a shame that you were let down on this extremely busy Sunday night. We most certainly do not ignore our customers or purposely find other things to do. On this particular evening we were so very busy that we clearly didnt have a chance to attend to you as quickly as usual. We do apologise for this and hope... More

We were very impressed with the quality of our food. The starters and main meals were equally delicious and great value for money .We would certainly recommend . The interior was cosy and quirky and we were greeted with a warm welcome . Staff polite and courteous which is very important to us .
