About Cyder Bar

Around the time that Hadspen House was built, the finest quality cyders were preferred to champagne by sniffy Somerset gentry who knew their tipple. Our cyders are made with 100% apple juice, using a state-of-the-art Cyder Press and Cyder Cellar, and advanced cold-press processes.

Thank you for a scrumptious picnic! The warm welcome received was matched by the delicious goodies prepared for us. We can’t wait to return.

Excellent Picnic as usual...the handle on the picnic carrier bag broke unfortunately and the crumble cake crumbled even more!

If like us you live in somerset then the newt is good value. But for our holiday cottage guests it is expensive it would be nice if there was a one day ticket available

Before I leave the feedback I appreciate things are difficult under the current circumstances but hopefully this feedback will prove constructive and useful. My booking was for 1330, when I got to the front of the queue my order wasn't there so the lady went to the kitchen to check. When she came back she said it wasn't ready and to come back in 10 mins. I said do I need to come back and queue up again in 10 mins which she confirmed. Slightly annoying when I'd already queued for 5 mins and now had to start at the back again in 10 mins as my order wasn't ready. I also asked for a glass of cider but was told I had to go to the other queue and join that one to order an extra drink. The queue was enormous so I didn't bother. If there was a way for pre ordered food collectors to be able to order drinks at the same place rather than queue twice that would be useful. The pre ordered food collections and people collecting drinks etc ordered on the day at the order point then merge into the same area and this caused confusion with people not knowing where to stand and what they should do. Separating these 2 queues would improve things. The queues generally were huge and slow moving. The shop made sense because only 6 people could be inside at once and they were browsing, but the drinks queue and also the queue at the ice cream counter were very long and slow. I saw a number of people just give up and go so this might be an area to look at as to how it can be sped up. Hopefully as I say, taken in the spirit it's meant to help you improve the customer experience. The food was excellent and we had a lovely day out. Thank You, Graham.

We visited to celebrate my daughter’s 1st birthday. I collected my picnic (agate spending over £70) and found a spot to eat. Only half of the picnic was in the box. I then had to spend 20 minutes resolving this, missing a significant part of my daughters picnic celebrations as the children had finished by the time I returned. Really disappointing. The quality of the food was otherwise excellent

The food we had was delicious and I really appreciate your letting us pick up our picnic 30 minutes early. We found a super, secluded, spot to eat near the Gardener's Cottage. Unfortunately you forgot to pack the scones into the bag and, by the time we discovered, it was too late to return to you without disturbing the meal. Not a disaster, as we had already eaten a lot. The sausage rolls and soup were superb, as were the fresh salads (we particularly liked the beetroot and orange). The sparkling apple juice was the perfect accompaniment. When you consider the quality of your ingredients and portion sizes, your food is not expensive.

Thought the salad disappointing - poor value as there was a large lump of mozarella , some beetroot hardly any blood orange - 2 tiny segments? and one watercress branch that was not fresh. Both salads the same poor quality

Great service and friendly welcome but price to product seemed quite off! I booked a picnic and was excited for a treat. While the quality/taste of products was great some of the portion sizes were off- my salad for example seemed more of a side salad than a meal and presentation left a lot to be desired (seemed like each ingredient had been bunged in rather than prep and serve if that makes sense). Most disappointing was the children’s meal- booked for two hungry small people the content wasn’t very child friendly. Some of the crudités also seemed a bit dry... like they’d been prepped yesterday! Expected small hand size portions and perhaps sandwiches? (Though maybe I should have read the small print more closely). The Newt food is delicious but could be considered a bit high brow for their tastes! Maybe consider toddler v child boxes and flexibility on content? Also the boxes supplied were HUGE and quite difficult to transport around when you are also fielding children. Maybe you could supply a returnable hamper/with a deposit. It seemed odd you’ve put tonnes of effort into ensuring the boxes and content are biodegradable, yet nothing except glass bottles qualified for recycling on site.

Extremely small portion for the price. I understand the food is of good quality but I had ONE piece of blood orange in my mozzarella salad which was £5. For that price I could buy 2 bags of blood oranges. Disappointing and left hungry.

although I ordered food I still had to wait in queue to get coffee. As the people in front of me had not ordered before arriving and were buying food and drinks it took a long time. Can you reassess the organization for those who preorder. Its ok if you order a cold drink as it will be in the bag
