Thatcher's Cider Co

About the Pub

This roadside pub adjacent to Thatchers cider farm re-opened in July 2015. It has undergone a dramatic transformation, tripling in size, with the only parts of the original Railway remaining being two of the stone exterior walls. Three cask ales are served, including one from Butcombe. One of the other ales can be unusual for the area. Three traditional ciders are served on handpump. There is a large restaurant area to the left as you enter and a high-roofed bar area where drinkers gather and where it is also possible to dine from the main menu or, during the day, from a small bar snacks menu. There is a large outdoor area with childrens playground, a small patio at the rear with smoking shelter and a separate function room. From 01/04/2017 a Pizza oven will be running at weekends. TV available in the function room. Live music events are held on an ad-hoc basis. Usually 3 bag in box ciders as well.
