Much improved pub after the refurbishment. A warm and welcoming pub which did a excellent steak and kidney pie 👍

There are so many pubs to choose from in Stow but we loved the Talbot. There is a great selection of food and drink and the staff were attentive and friendly. I had locally-sourced sausage and mash which was yummy!

A freindly welcome and good service. Local pork chop and sausages, both dishes freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Good value in a pleasant atmosphere. Would recommend

Excellent choice of well-kept Wadworth's beers. Good pub grub at sensible prices, unlike the rest of the Stow pubs which are overpriced on the food. Very welcoming licensees and staff. Main course was so generous we couldn't manage a pud! Please ignore the review that says not improved. It's an old building and nothing can be done about the upstairs... More

Thank you for your review. It is very much appreciated. We take a great deal of pride in our beers. Equally so, our food. You are, however, unfortunately incorrect when you say we have disabled facilities on the ground floor. Installing toilets downstairs was very problematic and not a possibility during the refurbishment. That being said, I hope this doesn't... More

We went here for lunch and we're just passing and decided to give it a go as it was a cold day and they had a real fire. The staff were very welcoming and warm too. Food wise, good pub grub. I had a beef and ale pie with real suet pastry! It was really tasty. All in all a... More

This pub is right in the middle of Stowe. Its had a makeover and we found it to be clean, welcoming, with good food and an excellent range of beers. Nice for a meal or just hanging out, enjoying your drink.

Had a fantastic Sunday roast, we came into the Talbot with about an hour before food service was finishing, there was plenty still on the menu to choose from. The food came very quickly, and the food was hot. I chose the pork and my husband chose the beef. The food was tasty and the plate was not over filled.... More

Thanks for your wonderful review. Our Sunday roasts are proving very popular. Very glad you enjoyed yours. Lemon Posett is the perfect finale to roast pork. Come back soon and see what we're adding to our Christmas menu. Cheers. More

Vast expense spent on refurbishment, toilets STILL upstairs. If you can't manage the stairs, don't go.

Thank you for your review. We always encourage feedback, however, I was disappointed to read your title of your review ‘Not improved’. We feel that this is a little harsh given the changes that have been made in order to create a cosier pub. Installing accessible toilets was very high on our refurbishment list, as we recognised the need. Unfortunately... More

Found this gem of a pub in the heart of Stow on the Wold. The service was out standing. Very warm welcome which means a lot. We chose to eat a light lunch. I had a BLT and my husband had the special of a pork sandwich, served on a choice of bread. They have a large selection of real... More

Popped in for a few drinks, staff welcoming and happy to chat. There are games and puzzles to do and play making it have a rather homely feel. Bar staff and locals are happy to chat too making you feel part of it not an outsider.
