When I lived in Stow visiting Speedwells and the owner Sam was a regular event. I now live in the USA but every time I visit the UK I fit in a visit to Speedwells. Their bacon sandwiches are exceptional, the like of which I have never found anywhere else. I'm here now, sitting in a comefortable arm chair, drinking excellent coffee and enjoying...you can guess what. (They also have a full menu). If you are exploring the beautiful Cotswolds, visit historical Stow on the Wold and call in on Sam to complete a memorable day out.

How nice it was to see you again Michael!
We do very much enjoy it when you pop over the pond to come and have a bacon sandwich! Its a Shame we can't deliver it for to you but i suppose its a good reason to come back every now and again!

Very much looking forward to seeing you again in the not so distant future!

We visited here last week and what an amazing find this was. As it was a cold day we were looking for somewhere to have a snack where we could take our Siberian Husky in. Absolutely no problem and she was given a bowl of water straight away. We only went in for a snack (as we were having a meal in the evening) but the menu looked so appetising that we ended up changing our schedule. The food was absolutely superb. My son had a steak and commented that it was the best he had ever eaten when out. The service was great and the owner very friendly and extremely interesting telling us about the history behind the name. Harvey entertained us outside the window with his ball. Well done all. When we are next back in the Cotswolds we will ertainly pay another visit and I would highly recommend you.

Tucked away down Church Street but well worth finding. Menu is appropriate, appealing - and not too many choices! Gives confidence that the food is actually being prepared in the kitchen rather than being cook-chilled.
I had Gloucester Old Spot sausages, mash and wonderful tasty onion gravy. Beautifully cooked and served hot.
Friendly efficient staff. Comfortable sofas for anyone just needing a cup of excellent coffee. .

A bright welcome from the staff brightened a wet morning. We settled for sausage sandwiches with Breakfast Tea and were well pleased with the choice. Well worth seeking out.

Came here after discovering that the the 'brunch' menu at the Old Stocks Inn doesn't actually start until lunchtime! Anyway we were looked after well and breakfasts and coffee were great; particularly enjoyed the breakfast hash and toast.
