Description: Pebbles Tavern has been voted CAMRA Somerset Branch Cider Pub of the Year and South West Region Cider Pub of the Year both in 2014 & 2015. This covers the areas of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Bristol, Bath, Swindon and borders, Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire. We were also Regional winners in the Cider Pub category for 'The Great British Pub Awards' 2015. We specialise in real traditional ciders and have a large selection of these. We also serve Real Ale straight from the cask, no pipes, from our quirky tap room. We have a large selection of single malts as well as Somerset cider brandys from local Burrowhill (the only legal distiller of cider brandy in Europe), a large selection of Gins & Rums. Also red and white wines of quality. We have locally produced apple juices from Herbi4 apple juice company. These are apples from orchards across the Quantocks, just like the Mad Apple cider we supply. Please come and enjoy our natural organic atmosphere, not to mention our regular live music events. Please see our website for full details of events. We no longer serve food but are more than happy for people to eat their fish and chips from the Harbour fish & chip bar next door.

“great cider bar - must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Found the bar by looking up good cider bars in the area. What we found went beyond any expectations. First off, Watchet is a lovely little town with a steam engine, harbor, friendly people, and a great hardware store to boot.

We went down the list of ciders, ordering half pint by half pint. A little afraid we'd annoy the bartender. But instead they were pleased by our cider curiosity giving us a little story about each one. Lots of tasty ciders. One of them, the Cheddar valley glowing orange and yellow!

We were lucky enough to be there for the music night - traditional and irish tunes. Whilst sipping our ciders we met many friendly locals. Just about everyone gave a smile and a joke. Last call is quite fun too.. you start to look forward to the music they play!

Don't miss out on a bit of the apple brandy too. Ben & Tanya run their bar with their hearts.

“Lovely welcome unlike next doot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

I am down playing on the trains and decided to stop for a pint. Initially I went next door to the London bar and was meet by a surly bar maid who served me crap beer.
So I went next door great beer, free WiFi and a friendly welcome

“Great atmosphere at the Pebbles Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Found Pebbles Bar by pure fluke. What a little gem. Serves all types of cider and has biltong available too. A wonderful atmosphere has been created by its knowledgeable owner. A great experience and the coffee is good too.

“great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

Very different experience, a small bar in what appears to be an old shop, wonderful atmosphere with very friendly locals, selection of ciders was very good ranging from locally sourced cider in barrels to some unusual bottled varieties, and also ales and spirits for those not wanting the delights of somerset's finest. Would recommend looking up this little gem for all visitors to the area and especially if you want to try cider in surprisingly good place
