Another terrific Cider House

Am down in the West Country at the moment, and visited another really great cider house, the Orchard Inn in Bristol.  Very friendly atmosphere, plenty of customers with dogs, and an amazing selection of ciders.  I went for the Surfin Turnips scrumpy from Solway Cider in Cumbria which was just about perfect.  Basic choice of food but none the worse for that, the Cornish Pasty was a real treat.

Cider houses do seem to share an exceptionally hospitable ambience, so it was a real disappointment that Bristol's best-known cider house, the Coronation Tap, was not at all what it was when I knew it thirty odd years ago
