Apple Day at the Stubbing Wharf

Monday, 19 October 2009

Apple dayThe Stubbing Wharf is holding its annual Apple Day on Saturday 24th October 2009, when landlord Matt Browne invites you to come and celebrate the apple!

As well as an array of apple juices and traditionally-crafted real ciders, visitors will have the opportunity to squeeze the juice from their own apples using the Stubbing’s own traditional oak apple press. And, as Phil Kennedy the event’s organiser puts it, ‘taste the fruits of your own endeavours; you can even take your own pressed juice home to ferment into cider, which should be ready by Christmas!’

Apple Day‘I like apples, so I’ll probably like cider!’ said one eager guest at last year’s Apple Day.

The Stubbing’s experience with its own annual International Cider Festival ensures there will be a good selection of traditional, real and fruit enhanced ciders from UK craft producers, and overseas cidermakers too, at the well-stocked cider bar. The International Cider Festival continues to get bigger and better each year, and likewise the Apple Day is attracting a growing following. With the Stubbing Wharf’s reputation for its food locally and with 30-minute scenic and informative boat trips from Stubbing Wharf Cruises, there is plenty to make it a great day out.
