Apple Bay Bar & Restaurant

The Apple Bay bar occupies the space we once used to hold harvested apples during our pressing season. Over time we outgrew the old bays, which has been sympathetically converted into an atmospheric bar where our customers can relax and enjoy a glass of hand-crafted cider within the old board walls of the apple bay.
