Cotswold pub with new owners undergoes lockdown revamp
By Matt Hall | 26th August 2020
Following the successful launch of their first pub The Stump in Cirencester last year, its owners have announced the opening of their second pub in Gloucestershire.
The New Inn, an old roadside inn in the village of Coln St. Aldwyns, is re-opening this September after a complete renovation. The pub boasts 14 ensuite rooms and has been stripped back to its original features, along with the creation of an open kitchen that will form the heart and soul of the venue.
Owners Baz and Fred say that similar to The Stump in the village of Foss Cross, customers should expect a fun, vibrant space approachable for all ages.
A menu has also been revealed for the opening, with a main staple of a variety of burgers alongside rolling specials, sides and main dishes that will have Spanish, Italian and Portuguese influences.
Baz and Fred feel the weekend roast option is more than covered by other pubs in the area, so they intend to mix things up a bit on weekends with dishes like BBQ spatchcock chicken and smoked brisket specials.
Owner Baz said: "It seems like only yesterday that Fred and I achieved our childhood dream when we opened The Stump at the end of August 2019.
"Now, exactly a year later we are happy to announce that we are opening our second pub. The New Inn is a beautiful pub that Fred and I have always admired from a distance. The only trouble was (like many gastro pubs) the food and service were never consistent, but we have always loved the pub.
"We couldn't be more excited to have the opportunity to sink our teeth into this project. Allowing us another opportunity to provide another pub in the local area with friendly service, delicious food and a very relaxed atmosphere".
