Owner description: A traditional cider bar selling only Cider and Fruit wine. The building itself dates back to circa 1744, and affiliated with the sale of cider since the 1900's, a visit to Ye Olde Cider Bar is a step back in time. An historic landmark of Newton Abbot and popular with locals as well as visitors from the UK and across the world. We stock a fantastic array of approximately 30 ciders, sourced from independent cider producers, as well as some well known favourites from Thatchers and Westons. With a great choice on offer, there is sure to be a cider to suit everyone! If you find your favourite - we also offer cider and wine to 'take-away'!

A variety of ciders and wines, with the atmosphere of a traditional bar / pub. Everyone was having a great time, but be careful some of those jars can make you VERY drunk.

Selling an extensive range of wines and ciders, a no thrills bar, but with lots of character, bought some wines and cider to take home too., well worth a visit!

Selling only cider and coolers this didn't at first appeal but once inside it's something else. Not smart but full of character , both the bar and the locals. Do watch the strength of the ciders though, especially the cloudy ones. The locals favourite appeared to be one named Diesel ! A proper pub.

If you live in Devon, then you should like cider and if you like cider then you will love the cider bar. The cider is all from oak casks stood behind the bar and is always in first class condition, but I do suggest you take a close friend with you, to look after you. Very strong ciders and cheap but be careful

The closed doors may be a little off-putting to the casual visitor, but you are assured a friendly welcome by staff and customers. Very little has changed in this cider house over the last 50 years and hopefully it will remain the same for the next 50. Sam's Medium and Sam's Dry from Winkleigh Cider served from wooden barrels. Great cheese and onion rolls too.
