Royal Oak (Bristol) Cider Festival 2011 Review

Address: The Royal Oak, 385 Gloucester Road, Horfield, Bristol, BS7 8TN

Date: 22nd-23rd July 2011

Date Visted: 23rd July

Review:

Having heard great things from friends who visited the festival last year, I then made it my mission to visit it this year. The festival is all about the pork, music and most importantly the cider. How can you not like a festival that has all that goodness involved?

The festival started on the Friday night, which was free entrance and their ‘warm up’ session, but I opted for the Saturday session. This was mainly due to having prior commitments on the Friday, but I was also gambling on having a cider festival in the sun, rather than a low key one on the Friday! Luckily it did not disappoint and the sun was out for all to see and it was a beautiful day.

From the first taste and smell of this, you could easily be confused into thinking this was pear juice. Though beware if you do, as it would soon knock you for 6 with it being all of 7.5%. Ouch!

Review

Walking on an average Saturday afternoon through Gloucester, you would not normally realise that this place even existed. Situated through an arch next to a Church, you wouldn’t expect to find a pub, let alone a pub with so much character and cider on offer!

Review

Just south of the river, we have The Cornubia. Without being told it is there, most would probably never come across it. However, I am glad I did. It maybe a little on the small side, but with that, it has a lot of old school charm and is a proper little boozer. This is mainly an ale pub, but it has enough ciders to keep me coming back for more. Especially for my guilty pleasure of the Apple and Pears! Read the rest of this entry »

Review

A true hidden gem in the heart of Kingsdown. This is a small and cosy pub, but still has the charm of a drinking hole from back in the day. At around £2.10 per pint, it still has the prices from back then too! This is quickly becoming one of my favourite locals. The bizarre thing about this place is the outside toilets with the amazing mural all over it. Not one I want to brave on this cold winter nights! Read the rest of this entry »

Review

Before 2009, this was a pretty uneventful wine bar that never really caught my imagination. However, since then it has been revived and transformed into one of the premier dedicated cider venues in Bristol. The Bristol Cider House has a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy a lovely cider, with a choice of around 15-20 available on draught/bottles. Every visit there is like going to a mini cider festival. Read the rest of this entry »
