Having heard several positive reviews we visited for lunch on a Tuesday. The place was packed, so we decided to wait and were finally seated at 2pm. Then things deteriorated. Don't get me wrong the serving staff were lovely but having ordered we didn't eat until 2.50pm. Only 2 of our 4 meals arrived at that time, the next one... More

We wandered round site on self guided tour. Setting was lovely. We didn't tasted code on site as we had had enough alcohol that day. However took a bottle of traditional cider along with a huge apple pie home. Both went down a treat. Well worth a stop as an alternative to the nearby vineyards.

Great food!!! Great Ciders!!! We went with the intent of in and out. However we spent a few hours there. It's the kind of place you can sit back and relax at.

After a day of plant shopping, my girlfriend and I stopped by for lunch. We sat on the covered patio which had a lovely view of the orchard. We ordered the lamb burger and the beef burger both with caesar salad. The burgers were fantastic. The lamb burger was the best I have had in a long time. My friends... More

We live in Washington state and travel to Vancouver Island every summer. I've been visiting Merridale for about 10 years now because they have the best cider I've ever had. We can't purchase it in the states. So, I generally end up hauling home A LOT of it to last me through the year. Their Traditional and House ciders are... More

No free tastings just purchased 'flights'. They have discontinued the production of Normandie Cider as the sweet ones are more popular. I have to say I like their ciders better in the past - I don't know what's changed. There is a nice Christmas display set up around the farm buildings and in orchard - enough for a short walk...

I am a Victoria local and a huge fan of the cider, so for the past 15 years a few times a year I venture up to Cobble Hill to spend an afternoon at the restaurant and in the orchard. It's a great spot with wonderful food. But the restaurant is so poorly managed that it takes your breath away.... More

Fun place to go with kids, especially during Easter, Christmas or other holidays when they really make the place festive. Adults get to taste great ciders and kids get to hunt for rabbits or leprechauns. You can take the self guided cidery tour, explore the orchard and stay for lunch. The cider's really good - organic, all made by hand... More

My friend and I had lunch at the Bistro yesterday. It was very good. She had the tuna and I had the scallops which were served on a bed of fennel and apple - delicious and beautifully presented. The servings were small and so we had dessert of apple pie a la mode which was delicious. It's a little pricey... More

I've been here twice now, the first time for pizza night which was amazing apart from the pizza's which were ok but not as good as I expected. My pizza was bland, and didn't have much topping, same with the other 3 pizzas on our table. But the deck and band were great and we enjoyed sampling the cider. Came... More
