Campaign for Real Ale

Pubs selling Cider and Perry

Real cider and perry has become very popular in recent years and the availability in pubs has increased accordingly. It can be served through a handpump on the bar or direct from a polybox or tub on the bar or in the fridge. As with real ale, there are keg ciders that do not count and the CAMRA website contains a list of those that cannot be included, and why that is

This list contains all the pubs in our branch serving real cider or perry that we know about. Additions and corrections welcome, please send information to John Adams - moc.liamg@0621apj. Some pubs don't sell it all of the time being a seasonal product.

We have had to remove all bar one JD Wetherspoon pub in the branch as they do not currently stock what CAMRA defines as a real cider. The change in CAMRA's definition removing Weston's from the approved list has this consequence.
