I visited Merridale Cider to taste and buy hard cider. I enjoyed all of the 5 ciders I tasted, and did buy 3 of them. The service was good, and the site is beautiful. We did not eat there, but I have heard the food is good. This is a fun thing to do if you are on Vancouver Island.

We were here for a wedding. The place took care of all of the wedding details. It was simple but very tasteful. I would say that the food served for dinner was somewhere between average and very good. However, the cider was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely!

I saw good reviews on the internet of the Bistro at Merridale Cider Works and decided to have lunch there. The menu is one page, but the food was really good. My brother and I ordered the bacon wrapped dates for appetizer, ahituna and chicken strip for main course, and apple pie for dessert. Their home made sauce with apple... More

My friends and family have recently visited this hidden little gem. It was a beautiful day out and the outdoor covered deck offered a wonderful setting with fresh air but shade from the heat. We were greeted at the table by a friendly and energetic server. Who was fun and informative! He Had knowledge of all the ciders and the... More

4 of us had lunch here on Sept 1 2014. Now Merridale Cider works has changed the parking lot, for the better. The grounds are clean and tidy. Our table was to die for: windows wide open, sun streaming in, overlooking the apple orchard, with a garden in the foreground. We started off with a glass of their apple juice... More

We waited quite a long time for a menu, then waited longer for a drink, The ambience is great, however someone should overlook the food quality. My wife had the scallops (only three and tasted like they were cooked days before. Very small meal. Mine was the full rack of ribs. No rack, just a pile of cut up ribs... More

Growing up around the area, my family and friends have gone to Merridale a number of times for cider tastings or a bite to eat. If you're visiting the Island, or live on the Island, this place is a must see! I love their cider and often take advantage of the growler refills, which make wonderful hostess gifts. Their Sunday...
