    Blown away by service, cleanliness, tastiness & presentation of food and organisation the three courses for £35 was great value for money food portion size good, creativity of presentation and great cocktail selection. I would highly recommend one of the best meals I’ve had in recent memory

    We had a wonderful evening at the Old Stocks Inn! We were welcomed warmly and our specific dietary requirements had been passed to waiting staff prior to our arrival. Staff were attentive and had extensive knowledge and understanding of the menu and managed to create a good ambience even under current restrictions and wearing masks etc. The food was extremely good and beautifully presented. Favourite dishes heritage tomatoes, Guinea fowl, rib eye steak, pork belly. Drinks good - rather expensive. All in all a really good dining experience!

    An exquisite dining experience. The food was exceptional with an impressive choice of vegetarian and vegan dishes which cater for my husband and I. The restaurant is a beautiful modern aesthetic setting with stylish lighting. The staff are highly professional, friendly and informal. We couldn’t commend it more particularly for vegetarians who are seeking fine dining.

    Great cocktails and friendly service. If you're visiting the area know that it's not a cocktail bar as advertised on the booking form but a coffee shop that's been repurposed over covid. It's a cosy and comfy space, but casual. The app for ordering drinks doesn't work after 7pm (no idea why) so have to do table service. London prices.

    Beautiful modern interior, amazing service, food was exceptional and the overall experience was the highlight of our trip. Couldn't decide on the wine and the lovley waitress allowed us both to taste each before making our decision. Highly recommended!!

    Very good menu and excellent service. Food was of high quality and procedures at this ‘strange time’ were adhered to creating a very safe environment. Will return for Sunday roast .

    This is quite possibly the best restaurant meal I have ever had! It was just delicious. The vegetarian choices were fantastic. The waiter so attentive to need, without being informed about any vegetarian preferences, came to the table to let us know there was gelatine in the custard dessert we had ordered and we managed to make another choice. So thoughtful. The Pork Terrine was amazing and the chocolate orange pudding was to die for. Fish of the Day, Stone Bass, was also excellent. The experience was second to none and exceedingly good value for money. I have already told lots of friends about it and next time we are in the Cotswolds we will make it our "Go To" place to eat.
