A NEW burger restaurant launched by the team behind Evesham’s very first burger bar is set to open later this year.

The brand StirrUps will be launching its first fixed venue at the former Outside Inn pub, based on Market Place in the centre of town.

Originally founded by Stuart Bailey in 2018 as a catering and events cocktail business, StirrUps was then reborn in June 2020 with a home delivery offering during lockdown.

At this time, Darren Strickland, who had just been made redundant from his job as a chef, due to the pandemic, joined the StirrUps team to enhance the cocktail offering, shortly after launching their food offering.

The StirrUps Team added another member to the crew, Dan Walker, a local businessman who joined to bring further expertise.

Speaking of the launch, Dan Walker said:“Launching something delicious and exciting in Evesham is something the team and myself are all incredibly proud of. Everyone has worked really hard over the past year and having a physical space to call our own is only the start of great things to come. We have lots of exciting things planned.

“Starting a new venture during a global pandemic is always pretty daunting, but over the past 9 months, it’s been wonderful to do something positive for the town. With the latest Government announcement, and the roadmap in place for hospitality venues opening up again, we feel this comes at a great time."

StirrUps make all of their own burger patties and use locally-sourced, grass-fed cow meat from a nearby farm.
