The Bank Holiday Weekend saw the opening of the new shop and café at Pure North Cider Press at Deanhouse, near Netherthong. A lovely afternoon was enjoyed on Saturday and friends and invited guests gathered to celebrate the new venture headed by partners Rob North and Alison Pollard. Entertainment for all was provided by Maypole dancing, storytelling, live music and hunger was kept at bay by a hog roast.
The cafe serves homemade and locally sourced hot meals and snacks made using Pure North ciders, along with sandwiches, salads, drinks, homemade cakes, ice creams and boozy sorbets and cider lollies in a friendly and contemporary setting. A relaxing atmosphere can be enjoyed with family and friends on the new outdoor deck or visitors can cozy up by the wood burner. The rural location on the outskirts of Holmfirth makes it the ideal spot for walkers. The Cider Press is dog friendly too. Free WiFi is available and there is plentiful free parking.
The shop stocks the locally acclaimed Pure North Ciders, Juices & Vinegars direct from the press. Gift packs are available together with bespoke bottled British ales and lager and chemical free wines, locally produced chutneys and pickles, oils, honey, cheese sand fresh bread. You can even take away the ground coffee and beans that are served along with homegrown seasonal salads, vegetables and delicious homemade cakes!
The opening hours for the shop and café are: Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 4pm; Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 6pm. Both are also open on Bank Holiday Mondays.
