Summer cider festival in Chichester

TWO of Chichester’s pubs are hosting a mammoth 19-day cider festival, starting today (Wednesday, July 11).

The festival is being conducted by the Wetherspoon’s group and includes both the Dolphin & Anchor, in West Street, and The Gatehouse, in Terminus Road.

Both pubs will offer 16 varieties of draught and bottled ciders made across England and Wales from today (July 11) to July 29.

The manager of the Dolphin & Anchor, Tom De Carteret, said of the event: “Cider is the perfect summer drink and I am certain that people will enjoy our fantastic selection, a number of which are not usually available.”

There will be tasters and all pints of the selected ciders will be available at the price of £2.20.
