Cider Barn

Cider Barn

Celebrate our national fruit and enjoy a breath of fresh, country air whilst exploring the unique National Collection of Cider & Perry housed in our Cider Barn.

Ciders & perries galore

A cider-drinker’s idea of heaven, from fine table cider to traditional farmhouse scrumpy. You’re invited to visit us at our family farm where you can sample and compare before you buy from a range of over 100 different draught ciders and perries. We are constantly seeking out new releases of the finest ciders and perries from around the country, fearlessly taste testing them to see if they deserve a place in the Barn for you to discover. Our friendly in-house team are always on-hand to offer help and advice

Remember: If you don’t see the cider you’re looking for, we’ll do our best to source it for you.


Other treats to tempt you

The National Collection features a carefully chosen selection of the finest local ales, delicious still and sparkling wines from Sussex vineyards and also offers an enormous range of meads, country wines and fruit liqueurs, as well as spirits distilled in the English countryside.

Alcohol free selection

For the designated drivers, you’ll discover a selection of interesting and unusual drinks, from varietal apple juices to alcohol-free beers and wines.
We highly recommend our own fresh apple juice, which is hand-pressed daily from local apples! In late summer and autumn you can even book a slot to bring along your own apples and pears to be pressed.

Try before you buy

Within the Cider Barn draught is organised into: single variety, dry, medium, sweet and fruit-flavoured ciders and perry is arranged from dry to sweet, to help you find what you are looking for. Our knowledgeable team are always on-hand to guide you through what is available to taste. N.B. Bring your own clean container to fill or we can sell you a re-usable container to take your cider home in. Draught cider is a live product, so we advise plastic screw-top bottles!

“…fabulous cider barn, I thought I had died and gone to heaven, never seen such a collection of proper ciders, I can’t wait to get back and try more. I tell friends who drink the mass produced stuff that it is not real cider I wish I could get them here for an education, I refuse to share mine.”
