About
The Cider Barn was established in 2012 and we pride ourselves on our quirky and eccentric appearance. We are located just on the outskirts of Cheddar, just 8 minute drive from the Gorge. ​ We serve an array of sourdough pizzas which are perfect to suit anyone's taste, we also have a range of classic pub snacks if you are just looking for something quick to satisfy your hunger. ​ Our friendly bar staff are always there to give you the full west country hospitality which helps when picking from our large array of ciders anywhere from 9% apple cider to our refreshing fruity range, or if you'd rather have something else we do also sell larger ales and other beverages. ​ If you have any queries about
