Bath: the new Bordeaux?


Independent pizza restaurant and cider house, The Stable on George Street, is launching cider tasting sessions as a West Country alternative to wine tasting. Sessions will introduce customers to different artisan varieties; the process by which cider is made; and its rich heritage in the region, with a view to proving that cider-making here really can be compared to wine-making across the Channel. The Stable stocks over 80 ciders, whose differences stem from various production practices, and will offer the chance to try scrumpies, bottle- conditioned ciders, cider brandy and champagne- style cider. “As with grapes for wine, there are many varieties of apple that can be used to create cider, each one lending characteristics to the final drink in terms of acidity, tannin and taste,” explained Andy Delbridge at The Stable. “For example, the single variety Kingston Black, the cider world’s answer to Pinot Noir, is renowned as a beautifully balanced drink with a distinctive West Country character. “The combination of different blends, production methods and apple types generates a world of

The development has meant a £900,000 investment within the city, and a goal realised for Ajith Jayawickrema, Turtle Bay founder. “I have had a love affair with Bath for many years and it has never waned, so I am excited about opening Turtle Bay in the city,” he said. “We will deliver a completely authentic culinary experience with food, drink, décor, entertainment and personal service.” The menu will offer traditional ingredients native to the Caribbean, as well as beach and street food including banana leaf snapper, Trinidadian rotis, jerk pit chicken and flatbreads, wraps and grills.


Operations director Stephen Entwhistle added: “What is fantastic about the city of Bath, apart from the historic buildings, is the growing global food
