The Stable to open Bath site on 11 October in former Hole in the Wall

Pizza and cider restaurant brand the Stable is to open its fourth site, in Bath city centre, on the site of what was the Hole in the Wall on 11 October.

The group, founded in 2009, already has outlets in Bristol, Bridport and Weymouth.

The Stable in Bath promises a friendly, informal atmosphere, and it will serve stone-baked pizzas topped with locally sourced ingredients.

Among the pizzas the restaurant will serve are: the West Country Porker, featuring chorizo from the Bath Pig Co; the Lamb Roast, topped with Dorset lamb; and the Billy The Kid, with award-winning goats cheese from Rosary, a nearby family-run cheese farm.

The Stable will also offer almost 60 different varieties of bottled and draft cider.

The restaurant will sit in the vaulted Georgian cellars previously occupied by the late Gerry Perry-Smith's Hole in the Wall restaurant.

The Stable was founded by Nikki and Richard Cooper who also own the boutique hotel the Bull in Bridport, South West Dorset.

Richard Cooper said: "We are excited to be moving to such a historic location that will suit the unique style of the restaurant. We pride ourselves on choosing beautiful heritage properties that greatly enhance The Stables' experience. Rustic authenticity is a key feature of the Stable brand across all aspects of the restaurant."

Nikki Cooper added: "We take care to choose suppliers who share our values in terms of quality and authenticity. Bath is home to a wealth of outstanding restaurants and producers and we are confident that The Stable will be a positive addition, appealing to the city's foodies, chefs, critics, families, couples, and cider-lovers alike."
