Euston Cider Tap

Ed Marshall

‘WARNING!!! STRONGBOW NOT SOLD HERE!!!’ The chalkboard barking that message across the bar at Euston Cider Tap makes it clear that you’re in the wrong place if you just want a pint of bog-standard appley fizz. Instead, this warm and welcoming former gatehouse offers more than 15 still and sparkling ciders on draught and straight from the keg, along with an impressive selection of bottles.

This is a proper destination for hardcore cider fans, but it’s also a great place for the uninitiated to find out what lies beyond the gassy golden pints that pass as cider these days. A huge wall of slate spells out the current selection – most priced at £3.60 a pint – and passionate staff are on hand to give tasters and advice. By the time you leave you’ll never settle for a Strongbow again.

First visit yesterday, what a pleasant and unusual place. Really superb cider (try welsh warrior) and very pleasant staff. Looking forward to returning, can't understand why it wasn't much busier on a Saturday. Well done all involved.


Much more seating than euston tap and a more relaxed vibe. Not being a great cider fan in the past, it has beers on tap as well so happy. Prices excellent value. No idiots. And no stupid branding. Good.
