St. Albans Cider & Perry Trail – Saturday 3rd February

Written by Janet Tansley

Further to my email about judging for CPOTY 2024, as promised, I have now arranged a trail to enable us to visit all the nominated venues so, if you would like to take part in the judging, this gives an opportunity to visit all six places.

Even if you don’t want to do judging, please feel free to join us, as this will also be a social gathering and, of course, all of the pubs & club serve beer as well as cider! 😄

The date is Saturday 3rd February and the following is the order and approximate timings (approximate because there will be some walking to get to each place):

  1. 1pm to 1.40pm – The Royston Club
  2. 2.10pm to 2.50pm – The Mermaid
  3. 3.05pm to 3.45pm – The Lower Red Lion
  4. 4pm to 4.40pm – The White Hart Tap
  5. 4.45pm to 5.25pm – The Great Northern
  6. 5.30pm to 6.10pm – The Robin Hood

If you would prefer to take a bus to the Mermaid rather than have a ½ hour walk, there are buses from outside Morrison’s in Hatfield Road, which will take you most of the way.

If you would like details, please email me at

I hope you can join us and I shall have with me judging forms.
