We were passing buy and popped in to get some cider, we were greeted by a lovely lady who helped us to what we wanted, on site there is a small park, some clothes shops and of course a cider shop. We could taste what ever cider we wanted before purchasing. Great little place to visit.

We went to Dick Willow's on a cider tasting experience today, which I purchased for a reasonable price on a kgb voucher deal. The voucher was purchased end of August and if we had used it promptly we would have got to see more of the cider making process which takes part primarily in Autumn. Our guide Richard (Dick) talked us through the various stages which was very informative and showed us the equipment used in pulping the apples and extracting the apple juice (I'm quite a visual learner - so would have preferred some props). Richard is very knowledgeable and funny, down to earth character and the premises also have a dual purpose as a collection of interesting objects (craft, antiques etc) for sale as well as a lovely farm shop stocked with local and organic produce. After our cider making tutorial we enjoyed a ploughmans lunch with the other visitors - we all shared a huge basket of french bread, home made chutneys and chilli jams, and some delicious cheeses - stilton, un pasterised cheddar, sheep cheese and like a brie. Then several jugs of different ciders appeared enough for a couple of glasses each, then Richard brought out a pear cider and then we had a couple of glasses of mulled cider too. We then went to the shop and bought some cider as it was delicious - Dick Meadows variety - very drinkeable - as you can see from my spelling - luckily I wasn't driving! We will definitely go back and visit the shop, there is also a cafe on site which looked interesting.

Unusual Place. Driving into Bath from the M4 junction where you can get more reasonable priced fuel I noticed a bedraggled cardboard sign on a stick by the road. A day later I was taken there as a guest. Eclectic, mellow a smorgasbord of people celebrating (some the apples, some the stuff for sale).Good grub, though they didn't realise that I am the Big Breakfast champion. Go 1st before you take a guest but ... nice place - individual?

Went here as part of a voucher deal which included a tour of the cider making facilities, cider tasting and a ploughmans lunch. It wasn't at all what we expected! The tour consisted of two rooms that weren't even set up for making cider. The guide was quite entertaining though. The ploughmans lunch that followed wasn't what i'd call a ploughmans lunch - 4 slabs of cheese on two communal plates, a bowl of french baguette cut up and a bowl of chutney. We helped ourselves to paper plates and tucked in - until we found hair in the chutney! The redeeming feature was that the guide was liberal with the cider tasting aspect. If i'd gone to Bath with the sole purpose of going to this place i'd have been very disappointed but shopping in Bath all morning made up for it.
