Apple Bay Bar & Restaurant
Cafe Bar Restaurant
With a five-star TripAdvisor rating, Apple Bay Bar & Restaurant located in Sheppy’s House of Cider most certainly lived up to all expectations. From the moment my wife and I arrived and throughout our dining experience, everything was taken care of. The menu suggests a cider pairing with each of the main courses and a wonderful selection of beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks are also available. As we settled down in beautiful surrounds, we were treated to exquisite indulgences. I started with shredded duck rillette beautifully complemented by fig relish and served with crunchy croutes. My wife opted for seared tuna, which was lauded as delicious and paired well with the spicy sriracha mayonnaise.
For the main event, I chose an 8oz sirloin steak, perfectly cooked and served with creamy Béarnaise sauce and sides of spinach and roasted red onion. I washed this down with the recommended Sheppy’s Gold Medal Cider, a perfect combination. Meanwhile, my wife chose the pan-fried pork accompanied by celeriac purée; it was the addition of salsa verde that made this dish extraordinary. We chose from a very well thought-out menu, which included vegetarian options and gluten-free versions of many of the dishes. I finished my visit with a satisfying glass of Sheppy’s 200 Special Edition cider, the perfect end to an absolutely flawless meal.
