Visited the Apple after a boat trip along the river. The female Staff looked little like a bulldog chewing a wasp. Life I'm sure would be perfect without customers. The male staff member was slightly more customer friendly. The drinks were fairly expensive considering their...More

I absolutely loved this bar. It is so different but so good at the same time. Staff are happy to provide tasters and help in anyway. Would definitely be visiting again, so relaxing.

We tried three ciders. The barman, Wills, was super nice -- gave us suggestions and tasters. Thanks Wills - you the man! Outdoor seating and cool main bar on barge. A must for cider, I'd say.

The reviews pretty much speak for themselves. The Apple is a cider lovers paradise (and Red Stripe lager if the kids carrying the cans outta the bar are to be believed). We sat in a comfy leather sofa in the bar below deck and the...More
