    Very disappointed. Warm beer (guess that is expected). 3 dishes (starters, entree and main) delivered at the same time on a tiny table. Oysters were fine, eggplant based entree was frozen ?? Main was obviously cold by the time I got to eat it and not at all pleasant. No interest from wait staff / not willing to engage. Left the food / paid the bill - never to return.

    It’s always a less than pleasant chore to provide less than glowing feedback, so let’s see if I can make this constructive. We’re old hands, lived in the area for over 30 years, and happy to travel for a decent venue and inspiring menu. We knew the Old Butchers when first converted. We thought we’d give you a try after a pause of considerable time. The menu looked very appealing. I suppose the measure is whether I can do better myself. The positive: my Calf’s liver was good, cooked just right, the kale interesting and it was good to see olive oil in the mash. Not difficult to do though, when at a premium. My wife’s fish was fresh. The not so good: My scallops were completely tasteless; perhaps they’d have faired better with some searing, seasoning and sealing. The cheeses ( 3 tired bits of a not inspiring choice ) served on a well used wooden platter. Grief, throw the wooden platters away, I nearly declined. Completely unacceptable. I can do far far better myself. The table’s are small and cramped. There wasn’t room for the two of our settings and was precarious. Proximity to others far to uncomfortable, especially when boxed in on one side by a pair of drunks insistent on engaging, and another pair of loud drunks on the other. Although the waitress was fine, the welcome was less than cool, more a bother than a welcome. No idea which table was ours. I tipped reasonably generously. Perhaps in error. Shall we rush back? Probably not. Far better quality with a little distance. In any event, I wish you well.

    We were a disappointed. The restaurant is cramped and a bit uncomfortable. Very small tables. The food was inconsistent. Whilst my dishes were amazing, my husband's dishes were sub standard. We booked the restaurant as it came highly recommended but it was a bit of a let down unfortunately. Staff were friendly. It would be good if they could offer to take diners' coats to the cloakroom as there is really no space at the tables.

    The Butchers came highly recommended to us by a good friend, and we were not disappointed one bit, the staff are very attentive without being over the top, they had a great selection of food that will tempt most palettes, wine list not bad either. We arrived around 10 minutes late due to heavy traffic, we were greeted with a smile and shown to our table, we were given ample time to peruse the menu to decided our starters and our main courses, all were prepared to perfection too. So if you are in the area it is must definitely worth a visit.

    Our Annual get together at the Cheltenham Festival would not be the same without a meal at The Butchers, and we had a superb meal on Thursday night, particularly the Calves liver, which was cooked to perfection !

    A friendly place for really inventive food with good but not overpriced wine. We are regulars and have never been let down. Jonny

    We had a gorgeous lunch at The Butchers on our last day in Stow on the Wold. The menu was fantastic as it catered for both fish lovers and meat people. I had the chilli and crab spaghetti which was full of flavour and not sparse on the ingredients. My fiancé had the roast which featured a Yorkshire pudding the size of his head and roast beef which was ridiculously soft. We had amazing desserts and cocktails to go with it and the staff were very friendly. It was probably the nicest meal on our trip and we would definitely go back.

    4 of us went here on 25th February Great atmosphere as soon as we entered It was bustling in there but service was great. We were shown to our table straight away and were served our drinks whilst we looked at menu Menu was good. Different to the usual restaurant menus. We had starters, mains and desserts and loved it all Service was great. Attentive but not too much Would recommend this restaurant and would go again if in the area
