This is a lovely pub in the centre of beautiful Stow. We ate here with friends on Jan 6 and thoroughly enjoyed both the good service and excellent food, we had a very nice evening. We each had different meals and all of them were lovely and well priced

Stayed Sunday 11 December, while visiting family in the area. Booking the accommodation was made easier by talking to Sofia on reception, so on our arrival there was Sofie who explained everything we needed to know. While our room was on the second floor we found the last flight of stairs somewhat trying, to say they were steep is an...

Spent a Saturday night here for our annual Stow visit with mum and sisters. First time at this hotel as our usual venue now only allows stays of two nights at weekends. However, we were actually very pleased to have made the change - we had a fabulous stay - really lovely rooms, very pleasant staff, lovely dinner in the...

Stayed here for one night for our Anniversary in the Denman room. Very nice, king bed, exposed stone walls, good appointed bathroom. No view. Nothing is straight in the hotel so take your time moving about. Did not have dinner in the hotel, so cannot comment, but had a nightcap in the bar area and read papers, although busy a...

What a cool place! It's been hosting visitors for centuries. The floors are uneven, the stairs tilt, and the beams are exposed....I hope I look so good after 5 centuries. The room was fantastic with a modern and well appointed bath room. A charming place to hang with a couple sitting chairs. We enjoyed closing out an evening on the...

We visited for lunch and ordered a sausage panini and cheese with onion mayo ciabatta. Just awful. Sausage not cooked enough and skin so tough and chewy couldn't eat it. Staff tried to explain that's how sausages are cooked in this area.... rubbish. Ciabatta filled with a mix rather than cheese. Inedible. Complained but just told again that's how it's...

Over priced and very basic! I had the vegetarian pasta, which was dry and I could have easily knocked it up for my children's dinner in about 10 minutes. My boyfriend had the pot pie, again very disappointing. It lacked flavour and could have been made easier for a generic midweek dinner. Very disappointed all round. We won't be returning
