Description: Pebbles Tavern has been voted CAMRA Somerset Branch Cider Pub of the Year and South West Region Cider Pub of the Year both in 2014 & 2015. This covers the areas of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Bristol, Bath, Swindon and borders, Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire. We were also Regional winners in the Cider Pub category for 'The Great British Pub Awards' 2015. We specialise in real traditional ciders and have a large selection of these. We also serve Real Ale straight from the cask, no pipes, from our quirky tap room. We have a large selection of single malts as well as Somerset cider brandys from local Burrowhill (the only legal distiller of cider brandy in Europe), a large selection of Gins & Rums. Also red and white wines of quality. We have locally produced apple juices from Herbi4 apple juice company. These are apples from orchards across the Quantocks, just like the Mad Apple cider we supply. Please come and enjoy our natural organic atmosphere, not to mention our regular live music events. Please see our website for full details of events. We no longer serve food but are more than happy for people to eat their fish and chips from the Harbour fish & chip bar next door.

“Scrumpy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you like your scrumpy and cider this is a good place to visit. A selection of about a dozen local brews, some run of the mill commercial stuff available anywhere but some a little different. The locals were very friendly and a good place to just sit and chat. There is no food available.

“A Local Perspective.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is quite an unusual 'locals bar' insomuch as it welcomes visitors and involves them. It is one of the friendliest bars I have ever been into.
Now to business,we didn't eat at Pebbles but we did sample a few of the excellent ciders - not all on one night though ! Our favourites were 'Rich's' but there is a cider for every palate.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Pebbles Bar to one and all.

“Mecca for appreciators of music and real cider”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Pebbles Bar is the destination of choice for visitors to Watchet who appreciate real cider. The bar boasts a choice of 12 ranging from Rich’s Farmhouse cider at a very reasonable £2 a pint (June 2012) to more commercial offerings from local producers such as Thatchers, Westons and Henney's. Here is where the locals go to relax and there are no airs or graces, so leave your glad rags behind. The layout betrays its roots as a café/diner but now it has abandoned offering food to become a proper bar providing beers, wines and spirits. It is open 6 days a week, from noon until mid-evening, being closed on Wednesdays. The walls are decorated with murals and song quotes and there is usually an eclectic range of music being played. There is live acoustic music on the first Friday of each month. The bar makes full use of technology and is usually showing horse racing or sport unobtrusively on a big screen near the bar as well as offering free wi-fi (witness scruffy characters producing Apple ipads from hidden poacher pockets). It is dog friendly and often there will be quite a few furry friends amongst the customers. If you do get hungry the fish and chip shop is next door but one.

“Worth a stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

This little bar was obviously where the locals went. There was an amazing choice of ciders as well as characters. Food was simple but good. Nice relaxed service . would recommend a looksee, and a cider or two. We listened to live music and sea shanty singing. Great fun.
