Barley Wood Walled Gardens,

Long Lane, Wrington, Bristol, BS40 5SA

Spirituous Libations

Not everything contains alcohol though...

Lavender Milk

Soft & non Alcohol


We offer a wide range of in house soft drinks, and some fascinating distilled non alcoholic cocktails, all in keeping with what's in season.

We don't source soft drinks from any multinational corporations. 



Spirituous Cocktails

Drinks have been made here for more than a decade. The dessert fruit and cider apple orchard in which we are located has long provided juice, scrumpy and venue for our annual Wassail celebration.

We have decided to carry on in timely fashion. We are re-working and re-imagining the existing traditions of drink making. Our bar is alive with experimentation. Embracing the limitations of nature has, for us, spurred unbounding creativity.

You can come and drink cocktails with us whenever you like. It brightens up a never drab garden.

Wines, Beers & definitely cider

We took the decision to work with wine makers who's first attention is to the quality of their wines and those that are considered pioneers of sustainable and environmental viticulture.

Our wines start at £22 per bottle.

Beer is in an exciting position again, isn't it? We keep an ever evolving range of bottled and canned beers all produced in the locale.

Our cider is made on site from 50 yards away, you can see the barn from the glasshouse. It's a standard setter but will give you wobbly legs.
