The Bell at Stow
This impressive establishment is run by Alex Davenport-Jones, who was awarded AA Pub of the Year 2017 during his tenure at The Porch House, and oversaw The Wheatsheaf in Northleach when it was listed in Condé Nast Traveler’s Top 101 Hotels in the World 2016. One of the most exciting new venues in the Cotswolds, The Bell at Stow offers a fantastic ambience, whether you visit in summer and lounge on the green in front of the pub or pop by in the winter to warm yourself by the log burner.
With head chef Jess Rutherford’s passion for local produce and her unrivalled knowledge of suppliers in the area, it should come as no surprise that The Bell is rubbing shoulders with the region’s finest establishments. Genuine local produce is at the core of The Bell’s dynamic and fresh menu. Within three miles of the pub you’ll find an award-winning bakery, home-cured meats, Billy’s free-range eggs, organic lamb and green vegetables from 300 metres away, all of which are used to create stellar seasonal dishes. Along with a fine wine list there’s a private dining area for up to 20 guests. Eat, drink, relax, and stay in one of the 13 boutique bedrooms. Recently renovated, the stylish rooms offer free Port and homemade shortbread, and include breakfast, where guests are treated to contemporary home-cooked dishes. Visit and you’re guaranteed a genuine welcome from a brilliant team at The Bell.
