They don't serve any beer in this cider house, one of only a handful of traditional cider pubs left in the UK, but it's a must visit. As well as traditional cider they also sell a variety of wines such as gooseberry, parsnip, apricot and sloe. The landlord is very old school and doesn't tolerate any bad language. He has also been taken to court for refusing to serve a pint to a woman.

The Cider House in Defford, Worcestershire is one of the few remaining true cider houses in the UK. The 'pub' is part of a 17th century thatched Grade-II listed building andyou aren't able to go inside. Instead, drinkers purchase a cider, either dry or medium, from a hatch on the side of the building and then drink it either outside or in the little bakehouse (see inside). The customers consist predominently of locals and if you take along snacks, expect to share them with others. Being located in a rural area, locals also leave any leftover vegetables that they've grown that customers are free to take.

The eclectic Green Man in Fitzrovia, London is a popular pub that serves a very large range of ciders and some excellent beers. There are about a dozen ciders on draught and as many again in bottles. They even serve their own cider made by Westons. Beers include Sierra Nevada, Leffe, wheat beers and three guest ales.
