Here are my top five pubs a short distance from the rally site worth a visit.
Stow on the Wold
Horse and Groom
Dave's recommended pub crawl
Don't Drink & Drive (Well not too much)
|The Queen's Head
Owned by local Donnington brewery this traditional town pub is right in the square at Stow-on-the-Wold.
This is probably the only "pub" in Stow serving their own BB and SBA beer. With traditional pub food,
where locals mix with tourists who are unsurprisingly attracted into this lovely old pub. Good food
and a great atmosphere. Dog friendly too.
|Horse and Groom.
Is a quintessential English Country Village Inn, dating back to 1580. This Grade II Listed Cotswold stone inn is full
of character with exposed stone-walls, flagstone and oak floors, hefty beams and roaring fires and from its early
days as a simple hostelry it has been updated without losing its wonderful charm.
Selection of ales including Wye valley bitter.
Privately owned, former 16th century cider house now serving a good selection of ales including Elmers
and Hooky from local Hook Norton brewery.
Two things have helped create the wonderful character of the bar at The King’s Head Inn – the
building itself and the people who choose to spend time here. The low ceilings, nooks and crannies
are the product of a bygone age and give the place a warm and intimate atmosphere.
Another Donnington brewery pub run by biker landlord The Fox Inn sits on the edge of the village green, with
its swings and see-saw, between Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. Well-kept ales. Dogs (on leads!)
In the picture perfect village of Churchill, The Chequers is everything a traditional pub should be with its pretty
Cotswold stone exterior and a muddy Landrover outside. Except, step inside this pub and you’ll find something
much more intriguing. A heady mix of the old and new. Expect modern cocktails to sit alongside local ales, and a
menu that is packed with seasonally inspired dishes.
This independent small chain pub offers a selection of ales including locally brewed Hooky.
Happy hour 5.00-7.00 Sunday to Thursday £2.50 a pint on selected beers.
