We met with family here for a Sunday morning breakfast. Friendly, efficient staff and nice food. Great shop attached and 10% off your purchase offered if you'd visited the tea room.

Called with friends, the main cafe was full but we went upstairs (very spacious) using "self-service" from the counter. Nice coffee and iced buns! Full of character no doubt gets very busy during the tourist season.

Called for early morning coffee, our first visit to Stow. Smiley friendly staff, food delivered with genuine charm, wanting their guests to be satisfied, what a refreshing experience. One server had a similar accent to Fred on First Dates, brilliant! All together a great Valentines day experience for me and my lovely wife.

Went here once and food was fairly good but they do not allow dogs which I find quite unusual in the middle of the Cotswolds so tend to go to Lucy's down the road instead

My wife and I visited Huffkins at peak lunchtime on a rainy February morning. Everywhere else in Stow was full, with people waiting.. Sarah the manager fitted us in (somehow). The staff and kitchens were under pressure due to the time of day but all were cheerful, friendly and attentive. Orders were instantly taken and our two excellent jacket potatoes... More

Went to Stow on the Wold for a visit. Looked around and found Huffkins. It was quite busy however we did not have to wait long for our lunch. I had a lovely bowl of soup with a cheese scone. Mu husband had a sausage bap.

Description
Huffkins is a bit unusual. We are an independent family business with our own craft bakery and a heritage that stretches back to 1890. Established in Burford, at the heart of the Cotswolds, by Mr Titcombe our breads and cakes were originally delivered by donkey and cart. Given the impracticalities of donkeys we have modernised some things over the years - but we still bake everything by hand. Our bakers work through the night to create everything from the bread for our sandwiches to the fresh cream cakes in our shops. We believe very firmly in sourcing ingredients locally wherever possible. Now whilst there is clearly not an abundance of tuna fish in the local rivers there are surprisingly few things that do not grow in the Cotswolds. And when we do grow something it tends to be good. Very good in fact. Our chefs take a keen interest in every ingredient that enters our kitchens from field to plate. So when, for instance, you ask for a sausage bap at Huffkins you can expect Cotswold pork sausages made by WJ Castles of Burford to our own traditional recipe in a handmade bap from our bakery made with FWP Matthew's flour from Shipton under Wychwood, served with Huffkins spicy tomato ketchup made at our own kitchen in Stow-on-the-Wold. We believe in real Cotswold food. Even our teas, which we buy directly from the finest small producers around the world are blended with local ingredients including Cotswold fruits and lavender from Snowshill near Broadway. The only thing we cannot get to grow locally is good staff - so regrettably you are stuck with whatever we could find. Many have been with us an awfully long time. Too long perhaps. Yet all jokes apart many of the team hold awards for 3, 5, 10 and even 15 years of service. Just look out for coloured lapel pins if you fancy spotting the old-timers.
