The Cider Box Limited, ARCH 5 Silverthorne Lane, Bristol, BS2 0QD   |    Tap Room opening 17th April 2021


We are on a crusade to flood towns and cities with real cider, made only from fermented apple juice, with nothing added or taken away. We do this through distribution to pubs, bars & events, through our own ‘The Cider Box’ events, and making and pouring fresh cider at our Bristol Tap Room.

The Cider Box was started in late 2012, frustrated at the lack of good cider in pubs, a plan was hatched to connect small, brilliant, independent cidermakers with pubs and festivals. We’re in love with, and absolutely fascinated by real cidermakers and their orchards, and want to share their story of heritage, craft and passion with as many folk as possible, in whatever ways we can imagine. 



Open Fridays 4.30pm- 10.30pm, Saturdays 1pm to 10.30pm, pouring fresh cider from our own barrels, boxes and taps alongside brilliant craft beer, wine, softs and snacks, plus regular food vendor pop ups and events including cider vs cheese, meet the maker sessions, and blending workshops.
