About the Pub

Friendly, Cotswold stone-built pub with a prominent bay window on the main road in the centre of a picturesque village. Table/Bench combos may be found outside at the front allowing you to imbibe whilst watching village life go by. Single-bar interior with a separate restaurant. Original paintings by Gloucestershire artists are displayed on the walls and available to buy. Function room may be found to the rear, accessed by a door between Gents and Ladies - up the steel staircase. It is understood that the 3rd hand pull is populated occasionally.

Jilly Cooper still lives in the village and the Stirrup Cup was her late husband Leo Cooper’s local. ‘I have a theory that the secret of marital happiness is simple’ she wrote in 2002. ‘Drink in different pubs to your other half. My husband Leo goes to...the Stirrup—the hunt meets there each Saturday before the off. Leo feels lost without his regular haunt. A pub is almost like a lover and he would feel terribly guilty if he was being unfaithful and was forced to enter the Bear. The Stirrup's Leo's and the Bear's mine.’
