Cider Pub Guide to Channel Islands
The guide to pubs selling Real Cider in the Channel Islands. 5 listed so far...
- NOTE: Beware of pubs offering 'Rocquette traditional cider'. While Rocquette do make a real cider, they also make a keg fizz. That is the Rocquette widely available in pubs, but you might as well drink st***gbow. The co-op's on the island (Cooperative Locale) sell Rocquette bottled still cider, which is more like the real thing.
