Festival celebration of cider

Have your say

A PUB is holding a 19-day cider festival.

It will take place at The Sir William de Wessyngton, in Victoria Road, Washington, from Wednesday until July 29.

There will be up to 16 draught and bottled ciders, including traditional brews, fruit ciders and perries.

Among those on offer will be Mr Whitehead’s Plum Cider, Thatchers Cheddar Valley, Sheppy’s Farmhouse Draught, Weston’s Cider Twist Blackcurrant, Gwynt y Ddraig’s Welsh Gold Perry and Sandford Orchards’ Devon Scrumpy.

Pub manager Sarah Noble said: “Cider is the perfect summer drink and I am certain that people will enjoy our fantastic selection, a number of which are not usually available in the area.”

Tasting notes on all the ciders will be available.
