About
A warm welcome awaits you at our tavern-style cellar-door, only 5 mins east of Daylesford (1.5hrs from Melbourne & Geelong, 1hr from Bendigo). Here we make a range of traditional style ciders using the heritage cider apples grown organically on the farm, alongside other locally sourced apples. Sample them all with a cider tasting paddle ($15, 7 glasses of different ciders) and pick which ones you want to take home with you. Lunch is served Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday, offering a modest menu which changes throughout the year. Expect wood fired pizza, platters & light lunches during the warmer months, and heartier warming dishes during winter. Bookings for lunch are strongly recommended on weekends and public holidays, especially for groups. We also host private functions, live music, tours, picnics in the orchard, bridal showers, probus lunches, post-wedding recoveries & wedding ceremonies. Just get in touch to find out how we can help you with your next celebration, cheers!

Wonderful location, food and ciders
May 2021
Enjoyed a beautiful lunch and tasting paddle in the comfort of the courtyard. Lovely staff member talked us through the paddle, and ensured we had everything we needed. Much fun to be had with the resident dogs as well. Thoroughly enjoyable

Cider variety
May 2021 • Couples
We had a lovely lunch along with a tasting of ciders.
The grazing platter was a generous size with plenty of variety.
Staff are all helpful and friendly so much so that we shopped and brought home a few ciders to remember our day out.
Well worth a visit

Fanstastic Location for a Group Event
Apr. 2021
We had such a wonderful day out at the Daylesford Cider Company. We were a large group but the service was fantastic and we definately didn't leave hungry, the grazing platters were fantastic as were the pizzas. Certainly recommend the cider paddle especially the watermelon cider.. The grounds are lovely with a cute little caravan outside were you can get drinks and a lovely lawn area where kids can play or you can lazy around and enjoy the delicious ciders. Highly recommend :-)

Just beautiful! What a gem!
Feb. 2021
Had no idea what this place was like when I booked lunch but it was great! Only a quick drive from Daylesford. We shared the cider paddle board. Yum! Perfect size for 2 people. We shared a beautiful grazing platter while sitting outside in the sun. Loved it so much we bought a few ciders to take home. This was the perfect spot to visit while in the Daylesford area. We loved it!

Lovely relaxed atmosphere
Jan. 2021 • Family
Visited here with 2 adults and 4 hungry teenagers and everyone left satisfied.
From the moment we arrived the service was exceptional, explaining their Covid-safe policies and how the lunch would run.
The food platter was a great size as a starter for the 6 of us. Everyone LOVED the cheese especially.
Having the paddle tasting boards was a great way to try out the various ciders. We recommend the Watermelon fizz, Sweet Coppin & Wild Oaked.
The wood fired pizzas were amazing. The staff took note of our allergies and requests and made sure they were followed.
Overall a really enjoyable experience.
We will definitely be back and bring along some friends.

Hi Kylee, That is super to read, we love hearing that families & groups love dining on the Feed Me package. Ensuring everyone is well fed is always a priority! We look forward to welcoming you back with friends in due course. In mid April we transition back to our a la carte menu of hearty homemade dishes to suit the change in season. We will also have a couple new ciders and our new beer available - so lots to look forward to! All the best Clare & Mackie

Unacceptable Accountability From Staff and Owners
Jan. 2021
If you have food allergies give this place the wide berth. Had pre ordered when we booked for gluten free pizza. Pizza delivered and waitress asked who is the gluten free pizza for, I said yes here please. 7 people at our table were witness to this. After consuming 2 slices another waitress appears at our table with a gluten free pizza🤬 We were then told the previous pizza was not gluten free!! I approached the owner for a discussion about what had happened and he told me his staff gave him a different version of event. So he did not believe the 7 customers who were witness to the mix up. As a result I spent the afternoon with server cramps and vomiting 🤢Never to return😤

Hi there, I am very sorry to read this. We take dietary requirements incredibly seriously, and our gluten intolerant guests usually compliment on the food and our readiness to accomodate. Your experience of the day is certainly not to our usual high standard and i'm sorry you left unwell. Regards Clare

Beautiful food and atmosphere

Just had a lovely lunch in the garden at Daylesford Cider. Tasting platter and pizzas were scrumptious. Driving so missed out on the ciders this time but the sparking apple juice was delightful. Will definitely be going again.

Hi Helen, Thank you for stopping by and enjoying our venue. Since your visit we have launched a couple more ciders and our first beer, so maybe its time to rebook and take advantage of the local taxi company :) Till then, cheers! Clare & Mackie

A very enjoyable visit.
Jan. 2021
We went to Daylesford on New Years Day to have a walk around the lake and , on the way back, saw the sign to the Daylesford Cider Co. and decided to drop in for a drink and some afternoon tea. We were lucky enough to get a table - the staff were very accommodatiind - and had a tasting paddle and a lovely pizza. Picked our favourite ciders and then purchased a six pack of those. Really enjoyable afternoon.

Fantastic lunch experience in beautiful surroundings served by professional and friendly staff. Grazing plates and pizzas were plentiful and dietary requirements met without fuss. Highly recommend for a lazy afternoon get together.
