Bar staff had an attitude. Very un welcoming. We walked in and walked straight back out again after asking a question and getting a arsey one word answer.

Great variety of proper ciders, the staff are really friendly and the atmosphere was fantastic! We tried several pubs and bars but always came back to this place. Decent prices and 50p for a game of pool. ❤️ the Rattler.

A great little pub with friendly staff and locals... spent a lot of time in here when on holiday last year...a good range of beers and ciders on tap... a top place if your a sky sports fan... only downside is up stairs toilets were a little bit smelly , like there was a drain smell...

If one likes cider they'll love the Cider Press as they have numerous tasty ciders on tap. There seems to be many regulars in at 3pm and seems a friendly pub.

Blokey sports bar in town centre selling a good range of beers and attractive prices. Its clean and tidy but the facilities upstairs leave a little to be desired. If your thinking of eating here then there are more attractive places close by.

Went in The Cider Press after a long walk around Torquay. Not far from harbour, we came across by chance. Good quality beer & nice atmosphere. Only complaint wooden seats very hard so had to move along to get circulation going!

As a visitor spent last Sunday afternoon enjoying the terrific atmosphere of the very old fashioned but friendly pub and entertainment of Steve Laister who is absolutely fantastic. A good singer and comedian whereby he had us all laying down on the ground outside singing and clapping. The staff were superb and the ciders were good as well. Well worth... More

I would give the Cider Press a higher rating but I was incredibly patronised by the bar man. For some reason he saw the need to continually explain that the Hunt's cider was 'very dry, flat and slightly warm' 'i can put some ice in'.
