Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Stirrup Cup is popular with locals and benefits from passing trade, including walkers and tourists visiting the area. Food is a very important aspect of the business, and we are therefore looking for an experienced and catering minded operator, who will develop the food offer to build on this excellent business.
