“Idyllic rural coaching inn turned into a popular pizza restaurant with pretty boutique-style rooms. Stylish decor combines teal walls, artfully mismatched furnishings & splashes of colour. A convivial open-plan dining room with open fires attracts a local crowd. Cotswolds cool at affordable rates.”

The Stump

This is the first countryside project from childhood friends Baz and Fred (aka Harry Henriques and Fred Hicks), who’ve been making pizzas together since 2012. Following their flagship restaurant, Baz & Fred Pizzeria, in London's Flat Iron Square, they opened this cosy roadside-inn-turned-pizza-shack just six miles from Cirencester in the spring of 2019. And it’s quickly a favourite in the foodie-pub-rich Cotswolds. The Stump, which also has 10 comfortable bedrooms, elevates the pub menu with rustic pizzas, delicious independent beer on tap (the owners are friends with local microbrewery DEYA) and a very chill playlist to boot. Come with friends as portions are big – we recommend kicking off with small plates of crispy jamón croquettes or creamy burrata for the table followed by the chorizo and 'nduja pizza drizzled with rosemary honey. Staff are friendly and energetic, so check with them for the specials as the handmade pastas are also worth considering. It’s cool, buzzing and genuinely affordable for an overnight stay – a proper place to know in the area.

Simplicity, good quality and affordability: that’s the ethos behind this old-new pub near Cirencester. The 17th-century coaching inn has been reconfigured as a stylish venue serving pizza and pasta, and judging by the crowds here, it’s a winning combination. There are 10 generously comfy bedrooms, too.
