PUNTERS will be able to enjoy a range of draught ciders from around the UK during a cider festival in Tewkesbury.

The festival will take place at The Royal Hop Pole, in Church Street, from Friday, July 11 to Saturday, July 27 and will feature apple, pear and fruit ciders.

Across the 17 days, the pub will offer up to 25 ciders including some never previously available in the pub and others produced exclusively for the festival.

The selection will include award-winning ciders along with some with unusual flavours including beetroot, rhubarb, ginger and chilli, apple and raspberry and even a whisky cask cider.

Pub manager Stuart Coxshall said: "Cider is the perfect summer drink and I am certain that people will enjoy our fantastic selection.

"The ciders have been sourced from across the UK and there is something to suit all palates."
