Was on the first tour Sunday morning (11.00am). The guide was very good and answered all the question asked very well. To see round the grounds of the mill was very interesting and you do have to remember this isn't a museum it is a working cider mill. You finish the tour in the heritage centre and this is were it went down hill, not a lot to see, a dumping ground for unused display boards and rubbish, poorly lit items and badly laid out, really just a hotch potch of cider related items. Then there's a small bar area that looked like it had not been cleared up after a party the night before, plastic cups and half empty bottles etc just laying around, you have the tasting in the shop, obviously so you will then buy some product, which I was going to do anyway. The bar area in the heritage centre would be perfect if laid out properly and looked after. Westons family get over to Penderyn Distillery just the other side of Abergavenny they do a great tour and the sampling area at the end of the tour is lovely and its just at he side of the shop area so plenty of chances to sell their product. Come on Weston family you make and sell great cider & perry make your tour great too. Had a lovely lunch in the bottle museum cafe, and the lovely smell from the Scrumpy resturant means will be coming for a visit again.

We're happy to hear that you'll be back to sample some of the delicious food we have to offer... Looking forward to welcoming you back then!
