Cider and Perry

The Mitre, in Richmond is the latest branch pub to start serving real draft cider from hand-pumps. The Stable at Kew Bridge, Brentford is not a pub in the traditional sense, but a pizza restaurant with a strong connection with cider. If you just want a drink you will not be expected to eat there. They have a very good range of ciders, nine gravity served from the box. Price £5-5.50 a pint. CAMRA has now set October aside as Cider & Perry Month.
