Review

When everyone thinks of Bristol cider pubs, the first one always on their mind is the Cori Tap. Dating back to the 1800s, this cider pub is what really put Bristol on the cider map. Its reputation is such that even the rich and famous frequent there on occasion and go and get “corried”. One of the biggest things it is known for is its lethal Exhibition cider. At 8.4% and only served in half-pints, then you can understand why it can become dangerous drinking it.

Review

This was probably the best cider pub in Nottingham we found for its range of ciders alone. Although most were made up from Westons/Thatchers, it did have the likes of Black Dragon which were a nice alternative. From a history point of view, this is one of the oldest pubs in Nottingham, with it dating back to 1240 AD. Apparently they have their own ghost called Rosie too and do ghost walks. Not my thing, but could be for you! It seemed a pretty laid back traditional pub that I’d definitely visit again. Read the rest of this entry »

Review

Located at the bottom of Cheltenham Road we have the Pipe and Slippers. You step into the place and it has a real chilled feel about it with its array of leather chairs and wooden décor that gives it a homely feel. The only problem with the place is that does become popular at the weekend, which means it can get too packed. It does serve a good pint of cider (Orchard Pig being my favourite there) and I would keep coming back for that alone. Read the rest of this entry »
