Pizza and cider group the Stable to open in Birmingham

Pizza and cider restaurant group the Stable is to open a new site in Birmingham, its first outside the south of England.

The Birmingham location marks the Stable's wider plans to expand further across the UK, in cities such as Cardiff, Cheltenham and Southampton.

It will follow the group's usual simple formula of sourdough-base pizzas made to order, alongside a small selection of pies and salads, plus a wide variety of ciders available by the glass or on a six-strong tasting rack.

The design of the site will be along similar lines to the group's other locations, focusing on natural materials, tall ceilings, historical features, long tables and natural light.

The Stable was first founded in 2007 by husband-and-wife team Richard and Nikki Cooper, alongside Richard's chef brother Andy. Formerly working in the commercial music industry in London, the duo moved to Dorset to open the boutique hotel, the 19-bedroom Bull in Bridport, and five years later opened the pizza group in the stable-like outhouse that was behind it.

In 2014, pubco Fuller's acquired a 51% share in the business for £7.3m, and there are now nine restaurants across the South and South West, including Bath, Falmouth, Plymouth, Winchester, Bristol and Fistral Beach.
