Cider house

Cider house
Ye Olde Cider Bar in East Street, Newton Abbot.

A cider house is an establishment, often little more than a room in a farmhouse or cottage, that sells alcoholic cider for consumption on the premises. Historically, some cider houses also sold cider "to go", for consumption off the premises.



Cider houses were once common. Because of changes in the taxation of cider in the early 1970s, and social changes, most cider houses now exist in name only. A few still exist in, for example, the West Country of the United Kingdom.

Cider houses also exist in other countries. For example, the Basque Country has cider houses, which are called sagardotegi.

The cider

The cider sold is usually fermented on the premises from apples grown in a local cider orchard.
