Accommodation Description:

Welcome to The Kings Arms, Bar, Hotel & Chop House situated in the centre of the Cotswold market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. The Kings Arms is a charming 500 year old former coaching inn; a Cotswold stone building situated on the corner of Stow-on-the-Wolds historic Market Square and is an ideal starting point for exploring the various attractions that this beautiful area has to offer.

This one time coaching inn earned its place in history by providing lodgings for Charles I in 1645. Today everyone receives a warm welcome fit for royalty whether you are popping in for a quick drink, enjoying a meal in the restaurant or stopping over for a few nights whilst you explore places to visit in the Cotswolds, and enjoy what this beautiful part of the country has to offer. Ancient and historic Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest town in the Cotswolds, standing 800 feet above sea level.

Stow has attracted people settling in the Cotswolds since the Iron Age. Early Cotswold settlers were drawn initially to the adjoining village of Maugersbury, but overtime the commercial success of Stow has seen the town establish itself as the pre-eminent town in the Cotswolds. Stow is located at the junction of six roads making it an important and natural meeting place.

One of the renowned Cotswold routes meeting in Stow is the famous Roman road – The Fosse Way. The centre of Stow has a remarkably large and impressive market square. Markets have regularly taken place in Stow since 1107 when King Henry II granted a charter.

Stow has always catered for visitors and travellers. At one time it was said that just about every building on the square was either an Inn or sold refreshment.

Dining Facilities
The Chophouse opened in November 2010 and Lucinda wanted to evoke the atmosphere of an old London Chophouse whilst retaining the warmth and character of one of the Cotswold's oldest and most historic Inns. Even now, the restaurant maintains many original features such as oak flooring and medieval windows. In the Chophouse, we pride ourselves on our use of local meats and fishmongers to produce some of the finest steaks on the bone, chops, cutlets, and seafood dishes.
