user reviews of the Porch House, Stow on the Wold

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Claims to be England's oldest inn dating back to c.947AD and, whilst, I know this will be hotly disputed by other hostelries, the Porch House certainly exudes character and charm with its medieval witch mark etched into the restaurant's fireplace, a frieze in one of the bedrooms said to date to the time of the Crusades and two leper holes at the entrance to the hotel. Distinctly separated into hotel and pub (although you can walk between the two), the latter has the usual features found in Cotswold pubs - stone floor, woodburning stove, low beamed ceilings, smart furnishings and soft lighting. Beers on sale were from the Marston's stable being Brakspear Bitter/Oxford Gold, Jennings Snecklifter and Ringwood Boondoggle. I had a pint of the Brakspear Bitter and it was good enough for me to have had a second (or third) had I not been driving. Customers seemed to be a mixture of tourists and locals.
