Located in the heart of Stow on the Wold, The Sheep on Sheep Street brings a new dimension to sleeping, eating and drinking in the Cotswolds, as well as a little Soho style too.

Stay in one of the wonderfully comfortable twenty-two en-suite rooms all decorated to a high standard, offering a comfy place to stay.

Originally three buildings dating back to the 17th century, it was known as the Parkdean B&B then being re-named the Grapevine Hotel in the 1980s. The previous owners decided to build a conservatory to act as a dining room, and this was built around a grapevine that was over 120 years old at the time, hence the inspiration for the name. The conservatory that was in now the main dining area complete with full-length bar top. A cutting of the original grapevine has been transplanted into the new garden area.

Top 10 Places for Fun Dining by Adrian Mourby

"The Sheep on Sheep Street only gained its current ruminant moniker in 2016 when it reopened under new management. Before that it was known as the Grapevine after an ancient vine that stood in the hotel’s garden. That was uprooted in the early years of the twenty-first century when a big conservatory dining room was added on, but a cutting from that vine is now growing up a trellis in the outdoor seating area.

The Sheep clearly takes its name from Sheep Street on which it stands, although this road has also changed its name a few times along the way. In 1457, during the Wars of the Roses this straight new road running east-west through the southern edge of Stow was known as the New Road. Later, in the seventeenth century, it was known as Back Street. (Most English streets have changed their surnames surprisingly often).

Sheep Street was a fairly obvious name for a town involved in the Cotswold’s lucrative wool trade. It’s a good name for a pub too and you’ll find the odd lamb motif around the three old townhouses from which this pub-hotel was formed. The building is faced by honey-coloured Cotswold stone and linked internally in that slightly zany way you get when doorways are cut between houses and the floor next door turns out to be two feet lower. There are twelve bedrooms up and down a mass of staircases above the old part of the pub - and an additional ten in more modern buildings in the garden. There’s a reception with flame-effect gas fire and a few corners to sit in, but most of the Sheep is comprised of a big bar-cum-dining room that occupies the old conservatory. This is a fun, colourful place that’s been well fitted out with seating along the lengthy countertop, tiled walls and a mix of comfy armchairs and banquettes. The furniture gives the impression of eclecticism and pays homage to the Victorian public house with all that tiling. In reality it’s a skilful contemporary design for the 2016 relaunch.

All-day dining at the Sheep comes from a menu divided up into “Morsels” (like pork crackling) and “Small Plates” (like buffalo chicken wings), “Pizzas” and “Mains”. The extensive list of main courses includes a lot of locally-sourced meat but also a vegan burger and two vegetarian salads.

As a Brakspear pub, the Sheep works from a menu designed by the company’s Executive Chef Arthur Knights but customised to suit the tastes of Stow. Because of its impressive woodfired pizza oven the Sheep specialises in Panuozzos, baked bread sandwiches cooked in the 300 degree oven and filled while hot. The oven is visible from the restaurant and adds a certain sense of theatre to the dining experience.
