With the latest ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film now on our screens featuring a Bristolian pirate, Blackbeard, what better way to celebrate this than to go to the pub that apparently Blackbeard drank in.

Review

When my friend recently brought up The Orchard in conversation, I just had to go down and see it again. It’s a little like an old friend for me, that isn’t quite local enough I can easily walk to visit, but I feel guilty I don’t see enough of because they are so close. Luckily as my other half is a perennial taxi user, it wasn’t to be the usual long journey to the other side of the river, but a nice short taxi ride.

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

A proper Bristol cider pub, centrally located in the heart of the city, just off Kings Street. Well when I say a pub, I really mean a boat, with the bar spread over both decks with ample outside seating docked on the river. With the selection of cider on tap and bottled, then you are really spoilt for choice. If I was to choose somewhere to wind away those long Saturday afternoons then this would be it.
