“A great little bistro” with “an emphasis on top-quality ingredients and thoughtful cookery”, Peter & Louise Robinson’s Cotswold venture serves “head and shoulders the best meals in town”. Despite its name and landlocked geography, it’s predominantly a seafood spot, where “kicking off with a half bottle of Chablis and a round of Porthilly oysters sets a high bar for both quality and freshness”.

Peter & Louise Robinson’s “lovely” and “slick” (but higgledy-piggledy) restaurant in the centre of Stow is well worth a butcher’s (geddit?) for its “wonderfully fresh” and “well-executed” seafood and steaks, with occasional nods to Japan or the USA.

Launched in 2015, Peter & Louise Robinson’s “fantastic little restaurant in the heart of the Cotswolds” is “as wonderful as always”, and while this cosy spot espouses the nose-to-tail ethos, confusingly it actually specialises in “immaculate” seafood.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
