We have dined here three times recently and this is my first review. The food has been very good on each occasion with a varied menu which changes from time to time. It's small, buzzy (perhaps even rather noisy sometimes) and the tables are quite close together. The service is prompt, polite and friendly and the food is very good... More

We visited here recently and had the most wonderful meal. We started with the quail eggs with paprika which was delightful. The chilli crab spaghetti followed which was delicious. We both then had lobster with fries. Excellent. The staff were so helpful -especially over the wine list. The young staff are enthusiastic and like to help. I would really recommend... More

The owner should be very proud of the young professional staff that they have obviously trained themselves. I believe the owner was also on restaurant floor Saturday evening and she was exceptionally good at her role making us feel welcome and attention to detail was great.She quickly rectified the cheese that we were sent out as not being at room...

We brought two South African guests here for lunch. We were all delighted. The food was delicious and moderately priced. The service was excellent. The owner's parents are Irish which clearly helps. We'll be back soon.

This was our third visit to The Old Butchers and the other two occasions were excellent. However, this time there were a few small issues. We know that it is a quirky restaurant but we do agree with some of the other reviews about the seating not being overly comfortable. We eventually ordered our meal - the young waiting staff...

My husband and I visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday evening. We ordered crab linguini and mussels to start, there was quite a wait between ordering and getting our starters but it suited us as we were able to have a few drinks before eating. We ordered lobster and chips and shin of veal (I think). The food was... More

We visited Stow last week and chose to eat here. We found the menu spoilt us for choice and the atmosphere very good. The food was excellent and the service excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the night so much that we ate there for the next two nights and were not disappointed. We have and would recommend... More

While visiting Stow we had the pleasure of eating here. The service was absolutely fantastic, the food was superb. They have a outside patio with a nice view of street. We were so impressed with our meals, service, we reserved table for the following night. Recommend making reservation.
