We booked an overnight stay at the Bell, expecting it to be a traditional Cotswold Inn. The bar area was fairly traditional but when we were shown to our room we were disappointed. The upstairs corridor areas look quite worn and in need of some refurbishment. The room was a reasonable size but the traditional bathroom door had been "modernised"...

Stayed for just one night for husband's 30th. Room was really comfortable, plenty of room for two and the port and cake extras were nice touches. Also loved that there was a hairdryer and straighteners in the room. The only slightly odd thing was the large decorative champagne bottle toilet holder in the bathroom - didn't really fit in with...

Visited the Bell for the second time, this time with my wife rather than for a business meeting.

Ate there in a Friday night for tea with family, food was spectacular and they have a dog friendly area too which is great as well as a dog station with biscuits and water. Our waitress was absolutely fantastic - highly recommended visiting!

Very friendly and welcoming staff, who were appreciative of dietary requirements. Absolutely fantastic food - roast potatoes and vegetables were particularly good! Thanks for a wonderful Sunday lunch! I would highly recommend.

We searched the internet to chose the venue and did we choose well... Yes we did ! Arriving at around 2pm we parked right outside in the small car park. We were welcomed by the friendly staff in which looked a fairly busy bar area. We were shown to a nice sized room situated at the front of the pub....

We had a wonderful one night stay here whilst on a roadtrip last year for my partner's 30th! We stayed in the small room which was totally adequate for one night and my partner is 6ft2!! Lovely staff, lovely pub, great food! Would definitely return if in the area :)

We went to The Bell at Stow for a meal. The selection of ales were great along with the menu. The food was really enjoyable and good value for money (based on the Cotswolds prices!). The service (in terms of speed) was great too. The only thing missing was a smile from the waitresses! Service in combination with a smile...
