Stopped off here for an early evening chilled out beer after a long trip down to Stow from the north west of the UK. Must admit I was a bit underwhelmed, poor choice of bitters (i.e. no choice), pricey and not the comfiest/quietest outside seating...More

We popped by here both nights for a drink in the back garden which is a nice space with lots of tables. Service at the bar (especially on the second night) could have been quicker as there weren't any other people waiting but apart from...More

We were staying at the Sheep Hotel in Sheep Street and walked across the street to book a table at the Porch for that evening- I believe the two hotels are sister hotels. The main dining room was closed when we arrived that evening and...More
