Pressing Time!

We are well into the pressing season now with the trees in our main orchard delivering a fantastic crop of both cider apples and eating apples for juice. This years press for apple juice is now available to drink in the café with both sweet and sharp juices proving popular.

Pressing of the main crop cider apples will start next week and I am sure this years press will deliver a fantastic cider next year!

The fruit has been plentiful and the Café has gone from strength to strength since opening in May.

It may be raining outside but it’s cosy and warm today at The Cider Press.

It’s business as usual for Rob, Alison and Sam despite the cold and rain sweeping across Deanhouse.

There’s apples to be harvested, cider to be pressed and delicious home cooked dishes to be prepared.

Why not pop down for a coffee with friends, or flip open your iPad and chill out on your own in front of our log fire with a glass of your favourite tipple?

Wassail 2012!

We celebrated apple day at the cider house and once again blessed the trees with a good old wassail ceremony! A great time was had by all with games for children, bangers and mash and plenty of that lovely juice from the apple! This year we asked everybody to make a donation to Candle Lighters (Children’s cancer charity) and we raised £350…

WASSAIL!!!
