Description: The Stirrup Cup pub is the perfect setting to relax at the end of a busy day or the start of an evening with a wonderful selection of Cask Ales, Guinness, Crisp Lagers, Fine Wines,, freshly brewed coffees, tasty bar bites. We serve real food and great and simple dishes all year round. Our menu is tailored to what is seasonally available and abundant with traceability at its heart. Our main focus is to use fresh and where possible local ingredients which are cooked well and served in a warm and friendly atmosphere created with the help of our two open fires.The Stirrup Cup has a lovely secret garden at the back of the pub for enjoying the summer evenings, it really is the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by over a glass of wine or a beer or two.We are proud to be located in the very pretty village of Bisley set in the Cotswold countryside, come along and see us at The Stirrup Cup Bisley today.

Reviewed 29 March 2014

A return visit to the Stirrup Cup and once again a great meal served by charming staff. Bangers and Mash again a firm favourite and the desserts are lush. Highly recommended.

“A weekend of delicious food in the Stirrup cup”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

During our stay in Bisley we dined in the Stirrup cup on several occasions and found it to be absolutely superb! The menu offered an array of mouth watering dishes, all of which were delicious. The staff were really warm and friendly, and made us feel so welcome in the pub. We are already looking forward to another stay in Bisley and more lovely food in the Stirrup cup!

Delighted you enjoyed both your stay in Bisley village and the food in the Stirrup Cup

I see you made it safely back to the old sod, look forward to welcoming you back in the near future, there is lots more to do in the Cotswolds other than Cheltenham!!

Thank you for your kind comments on Trip advisor

Keep smiling, take care

“A fabulous Saturday dinner”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

What a great place. We visited on Saturday evening, I had requested a table near the fire and there it was. Philip the landlord was our very genial host, making us welcome and taking all of the effort out of the evening. Relax and enjoy was his message. The bar is friendly and warm, the menu was great - lots we liked. I liked that it wasn't too extensive which always suggests it's being made not simply bought in. This was proved by great starters and main courses, bags of flavour and well presented. Will we be back - well if it isn't full then yes we will. I am already planning a return trip with some friends of ours who live overseas, what a lovely find and not far from our own village - we are very envious we don't have the Stirrup Cup in our village!!! Thank you Philip for an excellent evening, very much appreciated.

“Our lovely local”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We are particularly lucky to have The Stirrup Cup as our local and to be able to enjoy Philip's land-lording skills and Alison's excellent cooking. Since they took over we have never had a duff meal, everything is excellent and nothing is too much trouble for them. From quick Saturday lunches for two, to a big birthday buffet for eighty - good food, beautifully presented and with efficient service. Philip and Alison not only offer good value for money, but also support the community and its traditions in many ways. No matter whether you are a local or a visitor, there's a warm welcome and good food and drink at this pub.
