The Queen’s Head in Stow-on-the-Wold

During our recent trip to the Cotswolds Ms B and I stopped at the Queen’s Head Inn in Stow-on-the-Wold to grab a quick bite. The pub, located in a beautiful old building on the Square, is owned by the Donnington Brewery, ranked #9 out of 30 Stow restaurants on Tripadvisor, with a Certificate of Excellence thrown in on top for good measure.



We ordered fish of the week (£13.95), pan-fried salmon with boiled potatoes in this case, and an 8oz Ribeye Steak with chips (£16). We enjoyed our meals in the yard outside on the back of the building. Both the salmon and the steak were decent, nothing out of the ordinary, but pleasant enough. We loved the old building and the quirky way in which it is decorated inside, including, among others a massive porcelain Queen’s head statue. Service was quick and friendly.


Looking for more places in the Cotswolds to have a bite at? Try the lovely Porch House or The Sheep on Sheep Street 5mins walk away. We also reviewed The Fig in Chipping Campden.

For reviews of restaurants a bit further away try Ekeberg in Oslo, Ichiran Ramen, Tokyo, La Scuderia in Frankfurt, L’Ange 20 in Paris, or bbar in London. For holiday inspiration you might want to check out London Helicopter, our trip to the Sahara or our exploits at the North Pole.
