Bisley House is a recently renovated, family-run pub and restaurant situated in the heart of Stroud. Having quickly established itself as a fine eatery, Bisley House is the only Stroud restaurant recommended in the 2015 and 2016 Michelin Guide.
Beer-enthusiasts will delight in the local ales from Stroud Brewery, including the award-winning pale ale, Budding. The healthy wine selection sees choices from France, Italy and Spain, complementing the Mediterranean flavours of the seasonal menu, which showcases modern European cuisine made with great local ingredients. Starters offer a contemporary twist on tapas-inspired nibbles and French bistro classics such as moules marinières. The menu changes frequently to keep things fresh for regulars, though you can always rely on the popular 28-day-hung Gloucestershire steak with hand-cut chips. Other mouth-watering specials include confit duck leg with pork and chorizo cassoulet, pan-fried stone bass fillet on herbed new potatoes, and refreshing vegetarian choices that go beyond the expected. Round off with the cheeseboard paired with biscuits, homemade chutney and ciabatta toast.
The pub’s rear garden is a great suntrap and an ideal spot for al fresco dining or drinking on balmy evenings. This hidden gem is the place to go if you’re looking for excellent food in relaxed surrounds.
