After quite a disastrous day trying to find decent cider in Gloucester, walking into Café Rene and seeing so much beautiful cider made me feel over-the- moon. Once I knew there was Hecks Farmhouse Cider in the barrels, my eyes lit up and I just had to have it. After 6 hours on Stowford Press, can you really blame me?!?

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!

Walking up to this place it appeared the town was getting rougher and rougher and it didn’t look like it was in the best of locations (it reminds me walking to the Bristol Cider House in Bristol). However, the pub itself was brilliant, even if a little odd with its shape from the outside. There was 3 proper ciders on tap and I was a happy chappy. I went for the Hecks cider and it went down a treat.

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 »
