Campaign for Real Ale


Here is last year's Cider & Perry list. Available as a Spreadsheet download. 2019 Cider & Perry list,


If you like the taste of apples, you’ll love REAL cider! It’s made using 100% apple juice (or pears, if it’s perry), and if other fruit is added, then it’s natural, not from concentrate. Unfortunately, you won’t find REAL cider in many pubs, so make the most of our festival to try some of the delicious ciders and perries on offer. In response to customer demand, I have significantly increased the number of fruit ciders this year to 23, so there should always be a good choice available. If you find the choice too bewildering, then consider buying a “taster ticket” for £10 (plus £2 for a refundable sampling glass), available during less busy periods ONLY. You can have your sampling glass refilled as many times as you wish. What better way of familiarising yourself with the wonderful world of real ciders and perries!

Also on the Cider Bar we have non-alcoholic Organic Apple Juice, plus some locally produced bottled cider (naturally fizzy).

Welcome to my Cider Bar!
