“Recently changed hands”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

The new Manager of The Cider Barn was very friendly and informative. Offering us good service and smiles. The Cider Barn itself is also a Craft shop, which time will tell is a good move or not...

We thought the Barn was nicely laid out with plenty of different Ciders (and Wines). We had the option to sit outside and sip our newly purchased drink which we did and thought that the `garden' area could do with some tidying up and certainly, if this was made more attractive, with more seating and good quality tables and chairs would attract more visitors. (The place was pretty quiet when we visited on two occasions). It's in a great location to attract passers-by and bearing in mind we visited out of season, it may well fill up mid summer..

A nice place to pop in and purchase a drink on your way back to your Hotel/campsite etc and to pick up some very reasonably priced local(ish) produced ciders and wines.

they didn"t know their product, but was amusing watching the two lady workers arguing over which was dry or sweet cider

Thank you for your review, last year was our first year of business and staff training has been a priority especially with so many new products. We hope you found something to you taste eventually. :-)

“Cider, Art & Cakes............can it get any better???”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Make a regular visit to The Lizard Cider Barn whilst down in Cornwall during the Easter break and was pleasantly suprised to find it had got even better.
Apart from thw wide range of homemade ciders and wines, there are now chutneys and jams froma local producer plus a great variety of local art - some which are very reasonably priced. And as if it couldn't get any better the Cider Barn now incorporates a tea room / cafe with homemade cakes & all the usual fare.

The staff were very friendly & helpful. If you want to sample any wines before purchase then you only have to ask.
Great place & well worth a stop in whilst down in Cornwall
