About The Old Butchers
With casual dining, a warm and inviting atmosphere and an extensive menu to suit all tastes, The Old Butchers is a must-stop for anyone travelling to or through Stow on the Wold. The menu is predominantly seafood, with an emphasis on fresh, locally sourced ingredients. With notice given, dietary requirements can be catered for. Bookings are strongly recommended.
Whilst service was friendly and menu sounded nice, the food was of a poor quality and I was very disappointed. After talking to others who have been recently, it seems I am not alone in my views.
Had a lovely evening at The old Butchers, the service was great, really friendly and helpful, the food lived up to expectations especially the lobster! My only criticism would be the price for the bread and oil which was a bit high. Will definitely return.
Lovely meal and all staff very polite and attentive but felt a little overpriced. A bonus was seeing Queen of Puddings on the menu - I love old fashioned puddings and wish they were more commonly seen. And it was delicious!
Staff were friendly and attentive but food wasn’t cooked properly so had to be redone - therefore didn’t all eat together. Good wine list. Quite expensive compared to some restaurants that serve much better food. Felt cramped where sat and a couple of people knocked the side table that was holding the wine. A bit disappointed overall.
Great setting ,fantastic food the staff were amazing and bent over backwards to help and even sorted a lift back to our hotel.great night all round ,thank you.👏👏👏
Great good - great service, So good we came back a second time :)
The food and drinks were great but some of the staff were not very friendly.
Our table was small and cramped, as was the space around us. As a result it was very noisy, resulting in us having to raise our voices. Dinner is supposed to be relaxing, an occasion out, to celebrate, but it did not fell like that having to battle to be heard...
Excellent food and a gorgeous setting but what let it down a little was the poor customer service. Abrupt staff and slow service which is such a shame because we really enjoyed our meal.
Lovely meal, a bit expensive
Lovely meal and terrific service from everyone. Thank you
Food was excellent, friendly service. Only thing to improve perhaps was the time between starter and main just a bit long.
We both enjoyed the experience. My guest who hadn't been before commented enthusiastically to me afterwards. Only negative was noise but I suppose that's Saturday evening!!
Five of us visited on a weekend away. Lovely atmosphere, friendly service, all of us enjoyed our food and the wine was great!
Lovely meal! Our third visit! When we need a night away we book a hotel in Stow and book a table at The Old Butchers - it never disappoints. Due to visit again in September when we will take our son and his girlfriend - look forward to it!
We sat outside on a beautiful warm day on my mother's birthday. Her dessert arrived with a lovely chocolate happy birthday message - a nice thoughtful touch. Service was excellent throughout. Two of us had lobster which was fabulous, one had excellent belly pork and another the haddock and chips. All beautifully cooked and still nice and moist.
Food was alright though not amazing. Service was slow, inattentive and very obviously in need of proper training and supervision.
Was a great night.
We came to Stow last year for our first wedding anniversary and stumbled across the Old Butchers. We had such a fantastic meal that we came back to Stow again this year just so we could eat here again. It was even more amazing than I remember. Can’t wait to go back next year!
Almost the best reason to come to live in Stowe! If we did, we’d probably eat here every week. Consistently good over many years, a very favourite place.
Incredible food at great price. Staff are on the button and the the vibe is perfect. Honestly be very difficult to find something like that anywhere else.
An excellent meal at The Old Butchers. Great quality food and just the right level of friendly attentiveness. We'll be back again soon.
Having booked a table in January and receiving a telephone confirmation including the requested window seating on the morning of our booking we were all set to enjoy a very pleasant evening. However, on arrival at the restaurant we were shown a different table and when I mentioned confirmation of a window table, which I could see was available, it took 4 people more than 5 minutes to sort this out, while we were left standing in the doorway like fools. A young blonde waitress did eventually gesture towards the empty window table, passed out menus and left. When the woman whom we assumed to be the shift manager returned to take our order we were discussing the merits of ordering a selection of starters to share for the meal, even joking about ordering them all to try and were looking for her input, sadly this was not forthcoming so we ordered main courses instead. When these arrived the same young blonde waitress handed my plate to me across my husband failing to mention that it was red hot and subsequently I burnt the tip of my thumb. It took 3 requests for water before it arrived. By this time we were completely fed up with the surly service from both young blonde waitresses and when asked if we would like dessert we asked for the bill saying we would prefer to finish our meal elsewhere. This elicited a visit to the table from the shift manager who, when listening to my complaint said that the evening wait staff had started at 7pm, just before we had arrived and things were chaotic. Regardless this is no excuse for the borderline rude service from the staff, excepting the young dark haired waitress who was lovely, thanked us as we left and wished us a pleasant evening while the other three just stared and one blonde waitress actually smirked! Turning to the food, this was distinctly average (steak and two lobster) and certainly not worth a second visit or a recommendation, unlike The Sheep where the staff in the hotel, where we were guests and dining/bar areas were exceptional.
lovely staff and delicious food
