Often referred to in the past as Cirencester’s ‘hidden gem’, the Corinium Hotel & Restaurant – or ‘Corinium Court’ as some locals still call it – is better known these days. It has become a busy hostelry offering a friendly welcome, comfortable beds, good food and an excellent pint of beer.
Originally built in the 16th century, the hotel offers fifteen individual en-suite bedrooms. The beamed attic rooms include ship timbers from the Spanish Armada.
The characterful restaurant looks out into the garden and offers both modern and traditional British food, which is always cooked to order. It is also available for functions and private hire.
The cosy bar is full of Cotswold charm and very popular with locals. Visitors are often recommended by the regulars to try the highly rated ‘Butty Bach’. The hotel’s lovely garden offers the perfect place to dine alfresco or just to enjoy a chilled glass of wine.
Like many other businesses, the Corinium Hotel was closed during lockdown and prior to re-opening on 9th July, a thorough covid-19 risk assessment was carried out.
“The health and safety of all our guests and valued team members remain our top priority and we have put in place many safety measures to ensure their confidence. It is important however that everyone needs to play their part as none of us obviously want another lock-down.” said Proprietor and General Manager, Tim Waller.
Tim added. “Since re-opening it’s been great to welcome back our many regular customers, along with some new faces as well. The ‘Eat Out to Help Out scheme has been going very well throughout August, but after it finishes we ask that everyone will continue to visit the many local hospitality businesses that have been hit so badly. They really need your support.”
