This season it’s all about kicking back and relaxing with family and friends outdoors, and where better than at Daylesford Cider. In amongst a flower filled landscaped garden only a stones throw away from Melbourne, you will find a charming English-style tavern cellar-door with a courtyard filled with shady tables.
The bar is open seven days, selling their range of multi-award winning craft ciders made using the heritage cider apples grown organically on the property.
The variety of ciders is impressively broad catering to a range of different tastes and preferences, and the non-cider drinkers have a decent list of local wines, beers, soft drinks and coffee to choose from.
And what about the food? Well, the kitchen is open for lunch Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday with a rotating modest menu. During the warmer months, they are known to fire up the outdoor pizza oven and on Monday’s they offer a ‘Local’s Lunch Deal’ where you can pick up a pot of cider and any pizza for just $20.
The cellar-door often hosts a variety of musicians throughout the month, so check out their website to see what is coming up. The landscaped gardens are walled and a safe place for kids to run about or get involved in any of the lawn games. They are also dog-friendly, with a resident kelpie named Tarker.
Now all that’s left to do is to pack the whole family in the car and head out for an afternoon at Daylesford Cider!
