Best Pubs In Stow-on-the-Wold

In this blog, we’re going to outline why The Sheep on Sheep Street and The Porch House are the two best pubs in Stow-on-the-Wold!


The Sheep – Award-Winning Pub


If you’d like to visit a pub that’s a little different, then The Sheep on Sheep Street is the place to be! This award-winning pub and restaurant offers contemporary and innovative interiors and a truly electric atmosphere.


Its mouth-watering menus are bursting with delectable British dishes, but it is the show-stopping wood-fired pizzas that have people coming back for more.


The Sheep’s bar is overflowing with tempting tipples curated from around the globe and the sumptuously stylish inn often hosts unmissable events and live music for you to enjoy.


Its stunning garden terrace also boasts Beach Huts – perfect for day or evening dining and drinking come rain or shine. And if it’s venue hire you’re looking for, why not choose ‘The Pen’; a lavish yet homely area ideal for private dinner parties, family get-togethers and business events.


The Sheep on Sheep Street is also a spectacular hotel, offering 22 ravishing rooms that’ll have you raring to return. Don’t just take it from us! In 2020, The Sheep was named the winner of The Publican’s Best Accommodation Provider.


Each room is tastefully decorated with its own individual allure and statement antique furniture. Guests can sink into plush Feather & Black beds, enjoy the lavish showers, and make use of the handy Nespresso machine.


A complimentary breakfast is also available if you book directly with The Sheep. And just like the rest of the amazing abode, the hotel is dog-friendly! So, your canine companion can accompany you on your travels.

The Porch House – Oldest Inn In England


You can’t talk about the best pubs in Stow on the Wold without including The Porch House.


Aside from being one of the very best watering holes in the town, The Porch also happens to be the oldest Inn in England! And the centuries-old character oozes out of every beautiful nook and cranny in the Porch House pub and restaurant.


But that’s not to say this extraordinary establishment is dated, quite the opposite in fact. The jaw-dropping décor of this dynamic dwelling enhances the building’s crooked staircases, low-slung timber beamed ceilings and rustic stone walls.


For over a thousand years, parched punters, enticed by the intoxicating atmosphere of The Porch, have rallied over the threshold for bountiful beverages, divine dishes and a great night’s kip. And today, the fabulous team at The Porch offer exactly that.


The bar is always bursting with scrumptious sips from around the world, and the Kitchen team promises to offer the pinnacle of great British dining experiences with their creative, mouth-watering dishes.


And if it is a good night’s rest you’re after, the luxurious lodgings at The Porch are sure to please. The historic hotel features 13 charmingly unique bedrooms, which are brimming with country charisma. Better yet, the hotel (and pub) is dog-friendly, so your four-legged bestie can join you.
