Welcome back to The Watch Taproom for the spring and summer of 2024
Join us at The Watch Taproom, our tap and tasting room nestled in the heart of Tenterden, Kent. Open monthly in the Spring and Summer, our taproom offers a unique setting to savour our handcrafted ciders.
Named in honour after a flock of Nightingales, The Watch sits on our family farm, where much of the fruit used in our ciders is grown and fermented. It's a place where cider enthusiasts can gather to indulge in our fresh, flavourful creations amidst the very orchards that inspire them.
Opening dates for 2024:
April: One weekend only, from Saturday 20th to Sunday 21st April. "We'll have a self-guided blossom walk for visitors to enjoy. This is an incredibly special and beautiful time of year to admire the blossoms in our farm. This will also be the first time the public has been able to stroll around the orchards! Don't miss it. Welly boots are advised! We'll also have plenty of delicious cider and delicious BBQ from Wild Tayberry to enjoy. Join us Saturday from 12 - 8pm and Sunday from 12 - 6pm."
July: open from Saturday 20th to Sunday 21st.
September: Join us for the final weekend of the season, Saturday 21st to Sunday 22nd.
Open from 12pm to 8pm on Saturdays and 12pm to 6pm on Sundays.

At The Watch, we celebrate local craftsmanship. In addition to our acclaimed ciders, both still and sparkling, served on draft, in bottles, and cans, we feature a curated selection of craft beers from nearby breweries like Docker Brewery and Floc Brewing, as well as wines sourced from local vineyards. For those seeking non-alcoholic or low-alcohol options, we have a diverse range available.

Pair your drinks with our local charcuterie and snacks, perfect for grazing as you relax and enjoy the ambiance.

For those eager to delve deeper into the world of cider, The Watch offers an immersive experience. Explore the art of cider making while sampling our innovative and traditional blends. Gain insights into the production process, learn about British cider culture, and discover the rich variety of local apples.

Our ciders are available for purchase for you to enjoy at home
