After reading many good reviews we decided to eat lunch here and were so glad we did. As soon as we walked through the door we received a very warm welcome and were shown to a table right away. We eat out a lot and these days the customer service is very rarely existent, let alone as good as coming here. Do you get customer service like that in any of the thousands of Costa branches up and down the U.K. No. We had Welsh rarebit and a sandwich and both were delicious.
The Lovely owners and staff thoroughly deserve all the good reviews. We’ll be back when we next visit Stow on the Wold.

From the moment we walked in, a lovely gentleman welcomed us, what a fantastic guy. Amazing service, incredible food and outstanding staff. Well done, it’s so hard to stand out and you do by miles!

What an amazing cafe - food is unbelievably tasty and so nice to have something different from the standard fare that every cafe produces, great flavours and imaginative menu. Staff were so pleasant and engaging - can't praise them enough. Definitely worth a visit!!!

We don't have enough words to explain how much we love visiting The Hive! We fell in love with this place from our first visit - we now make an effort to visit each time we are in the Cotswolds. Everything about eating here will make you want to come back. Whether it's breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, tea/coffee, cake - The Hive has it all! The food and drink is incredible and the welcoming feel given by the owners makes it feel like a home from home and you'll always leave smiling. The Old Hookey rare bit and egg custard tart are must haves! We even buy a sour dough loaf and freshly roasted coffee beans to take home with us after each visit. Make sure you visit and you won't be disappointed!

This place is a real delight! Personal service is the order of the day, from a warm welcome as you enter to the individualised daily menu descriptions/recommendations. The food is delicious and it is difficult to choose which of the tempting dishes to go for. In the end we had Welsh Rarebit followed by cake and coffee. We were not disappointed. The cafe has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent, home cooked food and well worth a visit.
