Dronfield Cider Pub of the Year 2014

The Three Tuns public house in Dronfield has been awarded the title of Dronfield CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2014 as voted by members of the local real ale campaigning group in recognition of the pub’s efforts in promoting the sale of ‘traditional cider’ in the Dronfield area.

The tub of cider pictured was ‘Owd Barker’ and is produced locally by Dick Shepley of Woodthorpe Hall in Holmesfield, Derbyshire – one of over a dozen different traditional ciders which are always available. The Three Tuns has recently produced it’s own cider at the Woodthorpe Hall cider press called ‘Owd Podger’, using apples supplied by regular patrons of this popular local pub.
