Butcher’s Counter

Anton and his team look forward to seeing you at the butchery counter where they will endeavour to provide you with exceptional service and cater for your requirements.

We have beautiful Longhorn cattle on our farm and, as part of our new development, we now bring you a butchery counter specialising in rare breed meats including our own beef. We also sell home-cured bacon, homemade sausages and much much more.

There is nothing we like more than offering visitors and cider enthusiasts guided tours and tastings.

Café

Our recently renovated cafe provides a unique, casual dining experience with a wide range of tasty options from a good old traditional full English breakfast, to a homemade pasty or hand cut sandwich for lunch.

We use freshly made pastries, baguettes and cakes from the deli and bakery counter, so you will always know that your food has been prepared daily onsite.

Our café is an informal dining experience where seating is part of our open plan House of Cider. For those who like a slightly more intimate dining experience, you are welcome to order from our café and sit in the Apple Bay Restaurant.

Deli & Bakery Counter

If you like nothing better than a loaf of freshly baked bread, or a warm homemade sausage roll, you will enjoy a visit to our bakery counter. Sally will be happy to help you at our counters with her expert cheese knowledge and exceptional bakery skills.

Whether you are having a dinner party and need something extra-special for your guests or are simply looking for a naughty but nice lunchtime snack, we will have something delicious to offer you.

With bowls of fresh olives, speciality cheeses, quiches, pastries, baguettes and freshly baked bread, these counters are irresistible!

Cider Shop

What would a visit to Sheppy’s be without the cider? Discover our full range, from our award-winning Classic Draught to our very special Iwood Limited Edition cider which is only available in our shop.

Our shop staff are on hand to help you with your choices. You can even taste a sample or two if you’re not sure what to buy. After all, each of our ciders has its own, beautifully crafted flavour.

Whether it’s a gift for someone special or just a treat for yourself, we are sure to have something that will suit you perfectly.

Heritage Museum & Orchard Walks

Make your visit even more memorable with walk around our stunning orchards and historical museum.

The museum collection was put together by Richard Sheppy in the 1970s. It includes many farming and cider making exhibits, as well as tools from associated crafts. Your visit begins with a short film about the cider-making year at Sheppy’s, followed by an exhibit depicting the late Autumn season, with ploughs, harrows and seed drills.

You progress through the museum to the summer season, where implements and machinery for grass mowing, corn cutting and binding can be seen. Passing a variety of barn equipment and machinery, you will arrive at the kitchen and farm dairy section. The cider-making exhibits follow and include the giant old wooden press, apple scratters and presses, and a great deal more.

A walk through our orchards is one of the most picturesque experiences you can have in the summer as our trees blossom and the apples begin to grow. During October and November we harvest our apples and love to let our customers experience the excitement with us. The colours are exquisite and the sun shining through the trees is a highly memorable experience. 

A small charge applies to our museum, but the orchards are free for our visitors to enjoy. We also have picnic benches and a children’s playground as you walk down toward the orchards, so please use our facilities freely. When you're finished we would be delighted to welcome you into Sheppy's House of Cider & Fine Foods for some well deserved refreshment.
