Perry's Cider Brewery and Museum

Attraction details
Reviewed 29 November 2013

The cider mill has been owned by the Perry family for several generations. Not only does it sell a wide range of ciders(personal favourite is Medium Vintage) but it is a lifeline to local villagers offering a variety of local food and interesting gifts. Cider can be purchased in bottles , flagons or plastic refillable containers. It is a great time to visit as you can see some of the process in action.
The cafe is small and intimate but isn't always open.
Once you've tasted their cider you won't be satisfied with anything less!

a really well stocked farm shop with a lot of variety and excellent choice of foods, and of course the locally pressed ciders. Second time we have visited, and the place is improving all the time with the addition of a new tea room, which we didn't have time to sample, but will definitely wan to do so next time.

We picked up a leaflet in our cottage in Wells and decided to head down to Perry's one day. Apples were being pressed by the wagon load and we could smell apple juice as soon as we'd parked up under the apple trees in the orchard. The place was buzzing (literally!) and it was fascinating seeing the apples being pressed by rack and cloth and browsing the museum. Then we ventured in to the shop and tasted some amazing cider (and obviously bought some too!) and we finished our visit with an amazing clotted cream tea in the garden! I'll dream of this place now every September! (we visited in September 2011)

We finished a 40 mile cycle ride here and what a place to finish. The 'gunge' cake and rhubarb and ginger cake were to die for and we loved trying the different ciders at our leisure and deciding which one to buy. We bought the new Grey Heron and Barn Owl varieties and took these with us to watch sunset at the beach...lovely! It was a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon with a relaxed atmosphere, delicious cider and food from the tea shop and beautiful surroundings. Ps agree the museum could be a bit more informative about cider making and the history of Perrys. Maybe some tours too?
