King’s Head Inn

Gastropub in Stow-on-the-Wold

‘Pub of the Year’ in 2018, and set in a 16th-century cider house with a lovely garden 4 miles southeast of Stow, the King’s Head is ideal for eating, drinking or both. Seasonal menus draw on local produce such as Cotswold lamb, adding Mediterranean flavours (mozzarella and pomegranate salad), while hearty £8 to £10 sandwiches or cheese platters make a satisfying lunch.

It also holds 12 stylish rooms.
