Cider or cyder houses used to be common place in the uk, unfortunately Ye Olde Cider Bar (to give it it's correct title) is one of only four left. Currently it is up for sale or lease & what it needs is a good old fashioned landlord to take it on and preserve it as it should be. None of... More

Should come with a health warning as some of the ciders are dangerously drinkable. Lots of choice, different styles, strengths and prices. Classic 'farmy' interior, staff fine.

Hi. Visited totnes to see friends who decided we would got to newton abbotts cider bar. Cider lovely ruined by barman with bad attitude. Unfriendly, raised eyes to the roof when I forgot a drink in the order, never heard a please or thank you, failed to give me all my change. Needs to get on a customer care course.

just makes me smile thinking of this place, A one-off experience. Don't think it's changed since it was built and like stepping back in time. Good varieties of fruit wines and ciders - all of which are very potent!.

Don't be deceived by the exterior appearance do this place or be deterred by the fact there are security staff on the door at weekends. Once inside you will find a warm welcome and a mixed bag of patrons ranging from 20-80 years in age. The interior is basic and rustic but clean. There is a vast choice of cider,... More

we stayed near here and discovered it by accident. The exterior looks a bit tatty and not very welcoming but once you are inside it is much better. The only drinks behind the bar are barrels of ciders and fruit wines. This makes the appearance of the bar different from just about anywhere else I've been. Just be careful, because... More

Was on a five day holiday at Torquay and decided a visit to Newton Abbot for the day. I did a little research on the net and found The Cider Bar which made me salivating "Love Cider". This is a great place to spend some free time; the place is full of character, and local characters with their wonderful local... More

Cider only served here but many different varieties. Friendly welcome and a charming old world atmosphere. Watch out for the strength of some of the ciders!
