It's the oldest steam powered cider mill in the US, dating from 1881. That's all well and good but the best reason to visit it to eat some cider donuts. They were good, especially when washed down with from hot cider. A tip I was happy to follow!

I don't know how anyone could ever write anything negative about this place. I've been coming here since I was little. Now my kids enjoy it as much as I did. Yes it gets busy and trust me it's worth the wait. The staff and establishment are fantastic! Food and drinks are excellent. We never miss a year ....this is... More

We travelled from Rhode Island to Connecticut to check out this seasonal attraction. We went on a Monday morning, mid-afternoon. He cider was amazing and the apple dumpling did not disappoint us. We walked around the grounds. It definitely has the vibe of a seasonal general store. Lots of autumnal decorations and some Christmas decor as well. Sadly, you cannot... More

Clyde's if by far the best place to make you feel like fall is here. The cold cider fresh from the tap or the warm cider on a nice cool day... The aroma of fresh cooked cider donuts and other amazing baked goods like muffins, apple turnovers, and pumpkin bread are irresistible. They also have New England favorites like maple... More

We lived about a half hour drive from Clyde's for 10 years and going there was an annual trek. We are out of state now but when in the ares in the September to November time frame it is a must see. Great for families as youngsters can see the steam powered press and the process of making cider. For... More

Stopping here during the fall is a must! Best donuts, cider, and apple crisp around! Come early thought because it gets packed quickly. Definitely worth the wait though!

We made a special trip out to B.F. Clyde's Cider Mill for the cider and cider donuts and we were not disappointed! The shop is super cute and you can tour around the mill. We took our cups of cider and delicious donuts and enjoyed them on the porch in nice chairs. It was really a great experience!

My sister used to take me here when we did outings to mystic! I miss doing these things with her and I miss living in CT! I remember the Cidar being so delicious and refreshing! Makes me think of the fall time, I get all teary eyed thinking about it,

My wife had been here previously in the late November timeframe, and she had a good visit and it was quiet. We went earlier this month and it was very crowded - lines out the front and back door. Thankfully, we felt it was worth the wait. The cider was excellent and so were the donuts. They also sell their... More

We usually go to Lapsley Orchards in Pomfret CT RT169. I saw the ad in our Madison Source local newspaper and was amazed by the "old cider press" and talked my wife into going here instead of Lapsley Orchard. The cider is not cider and after 2 weeks in the refrigerator I had to throw it out ; it started... More
