“Excellent seafood in the unlikely named Old Butchers” is the calling card of Pete & Louise Robinson’s long standing Stow venue, most of it delivered from Cornwall. “All the food served is of a very high standard” – even if arguably “the simple ambience doesn’t match the cooking”.

“This long-standing stalwart of Stow, a mecca for foodies, continues to deliver brilliantly”, with “the very best ingredients, cooked sublimely, in such a relaxed atmosphere” being the recipe for Peter & Louise Robinson's success. Fish is the focus, with an “unexpectedly good range of seafood so far from the sea”, but “everything is up to London standards… including price!”

“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”.

For 32 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).
