Ad Astra Cider is a new craft cider company and Tap House in Stone Allerton, Somerset. We focus on making fantastic single variety and blended ciders made from classic West Country cider apples within our own 12-acre orchard.
We strive to be as ecologically friendly as possible allowing the biodiversity within the orchard to take care of pests naturally and so do not use any pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
The name, Ad Astra is proudly derived from the Royal Air Force Motto ‘Per Ardua Ad Astra’ meaning, ‘Through Adversity to the Stars’. As Ex-RAF aircrew, we chose the name to reflect our background and to honour the history of our amazing cider barn tap house which was used to make wings for Hurricane aircraft in WWII.
Our 100% apple ciders are named after famous RAF aircraft, like Hurricane, Vulcan, Typhoon and Nimrod, and despite only being open for just over one year, our ciders have already won Gold at the British Cider Championships.
Come and taste our ciders in the historic Ad Astra Tap House.
Opening times do vary throughout the year. The current opening times and a map of our location can be found on our website.

Serving fine ales since 1850ish
The New Inn was originally part of a row of cottages in Combe Batch, and is thought to have been opened sometime in the late 1840s by the Parker family. It was ‘new’ compared to the other two drinking establishments in the village, and hence the name.
The pub didn’t appear as a beer house in the census of 1841, but by 1851 Ann Parker was recorded as being the keeper of an ‘Ale and Beer house’. She was still running it in 1891 with her son George (44) and one servant, and by 1901 George Parker had taken over.
