The Apple is always a must do when I'm in Bristol. Friendly and knowledgeable bar staff, a great selection of PROPER ciders and a good atmosphere whether you're drinking in the boat or on the quayside. No frills but then who needs them?

Visited here today, wide range of ciders. Other alcoholic drinks available. Love the boat, a very quirky set up. The music and atmosphere was great. We'll definitely be back soon!

We stopped off here for a drink yesterday afternoon. There’s a variety of ciders on offer and alternatives if cider isn’t your drink. Lovely location, nice decor and plenty of seating.

I really like The Apple. It's got a huge range of ciders and it's a quirky venue, floating on the river. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in Bristol. The staff were friendly, though, after letting us sample three ciders, we were informed we would...More
