I am a local and a cider fan, I never drank in the Cider Press before the refurb due to the fact of the poor cider selection. Since the refurb I noticed the 32 cider selection so paid a visit the other night. I am impressed with the wall of cider taps but was very unimpressed that the best local ciders are not here. The Drapers arms up the road has just won a CAMRA award for best pub in Bristol. They only have one Cider on tap. Its Wilkins Cider and its brilliant. Where is the Hecks Cider and Perry's? What about Riches Cider? The Cider has the potential to a great Cider pub but you really need to be the talking to the cider farms. the pub seems to be more a student pub and sports bar than a place for cider lovers.
Also....Please Please bring back the dartboard this tradition needs to be saved. More pub games and vintage arcade games and pinball tables. I know pubs are suffering and focussing on food but you have loads of space. Thank you.
