The Jolly Judge is hosting a Real Cider Festival on Wednesday 15th of July to Tuesday 21th of July

After the huge success of our spring cider festival, The Jolly Judge will be hosting its annual summer real cider and perry festival.

The festival will feature over 25 different ciders and perries from Gwatkin, Gwynt Y Ddraig, Hecks, Olivers, Cairn O’ Mhor, Thistly Cross, Westons and many more still to be confirmed.

For over six years the Jolly Judge has been in the estimable position of being one of the few pubs in Edinburgh to actively promote real draught cider on a permanent basis, and with great success. This will be our eighth festival and hopefully, with your discerning assistance, the best so far.

We believe that this will be a unique event that will offer a chance for the Edinburgh public and visitors to experience an expertly selected and diverse range of ciders not normally available in the capital.
