As you will see the reviews of the Vine Leaf are excellent which is so deserved but rather than repeat what everyone has said I would like to comment more on the lovely couple who run it. It was so good to see a kind young lady look after all her customers in such a pleasant manner. An elderly lady who was struggling a little was treated like a dear friend even though she only had a cup of tea. It was so warming to see that some people are still so kind and caring.
And so to the food, everything was freshly made and to a very high standard, the quality of the bacon was excellent and the home cooked and hand carved ham was delicious.
We will be back.

We stumbled across the Vine Leaf whilst visiting Stow on the Wold - and thank God we did! Lindsey was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her, and her husband, John, produced excellent quality food. This is definitely a place that must be visited when in the area - it is very simple in decor, but don't let that fool you - it's food, service and ambience is 5* plus but without the 5* price tag! I wish both Lindsey and John every success for their future - they thoroughly deserve it!

After looking around at the various Hotel Resturant offerings in Stow we stumbled across this little Gem, it was a real find with with great food and great service, nice relaxed atmosphere and child friendly. We will definately make a return visit when we're in Stow again. Try it!

The Vine leaf is a popular choice of ours when either going out for lunch or a nice meal in the evening around the Cotswolds. We have tried many of the other pubs and restaurants within Stow and non come close to the quality of food, value for money and friendly staff that we always come across in the vine leaf. We have tried many dishes off the menu and our favorites would be the burgers (NOT to be missed especially the relish!!) and of course the belly of pork!!Of course we do like to finish it all off with one of the desserts (HINT HINT Sticky toffee pudding!!)
Do not hesitate and go give this lovely couple's food and service a try!

Wow what a gem of a place! friendly service with beautiful food. We had the three course lunch special (£14). exceptional value for money, food was delightful, proper 'home cooked'...the biggest compliment was when my husband said the meatballs and tomato sauce tasted like mine!.. i'm not sure the chef would have seen it as a compliment but its hard to have good tasty food outside home ,this place has that nailed! having been once, i wouldnt eat anywhere else if i was ever there again.
