We are now based at Wapping Wharf - behind M-Shed - in a shiny new shipping container. See our 'Visit the Shop' page for directions... We look forward to seeing you there!

We have a new phone number (0117) 929 3203.

We still have our famous range of cider to take away and we now have a Cider Cafe on site so you can enjoy a cider with some top notch cheese or a lush pork pie :)

We're open 11am - 7pm Tuesday to Saturday (11am - 4pm on Sundays) and we hold cider tastings most nights. See our 'Events' page for details.

New face in the shop

Posted On 15th Jul 2016   Posted By Pete

Meet Sebastian, our new manager, who started this week. He's a Bristol boy with a background in food & drink and he'll be taking charge of the new shop when we move. We'll be training him up on all things cider as fast as we can but see if you can catch him out with some difficult cider questions!
