Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well and looking forward to this brand new exciting blog post. I am very happy to be sharing this post with you which is why I decided to write it straight away and share it with you as fast as I could. Earlier on today at 15:00, I attended a Cider and Pizza tasting session at The Stable in Winchester which lasted for approximately 2 hours. This event was a special one created by Fran at Page and Peachy Events, predominantly for bloggers to meet up and interact with one another… and of course try all the amazing ciders and food that The Stable has to offer. I am so grateful I got the opportunity to attend my first blogger event especially with the lovely Fran who is very welcoming and a great host.
I was very impressed when entering The Stable for the very first time. It is absolutely beautiful with big large spaces between each table, large windows overlooking the beautiful town of Winchester and the building was just lovely to look at. I thought it was very clean and definitely a high standard food place. I am definitely so pleased with myself for attending the blogger event today and grateful for the invitation. I have met so many amazing and lovely people who I never would have met before if it wasn’t for this event and of course I have had an amazing experience at The Stable that I can honestly say I will be returning for dinner very soon. The food there is outstanding and I would love to go back to try more of what’s on the menu.
Cider Tasting Scoring System
The Cider tasting consisted of 9 different types of Cider which are all sold at The Stable. Our task was to try a small sample of each Cider; giving our honest opinions about each one. We had to rate the Cider based on appearance, aroma, and taste all out of 10. The idea of this was to identify which one was our favorite. The total score for the Cider being tasted was out of 30. I think this was a perfect way to figure out what the perfect Cider is for you. I really liked how knowledgeable and professional the Cider Master was who was Will. He was full of information and was brilliant of him to know the answer to every question that we had. The Cider tasting event was well thought out as everything was running according to plan which was clearly represented as the host and cider master always had something going on. I was really impressed with how generous they were with the cider and always ensuring that there was plenty of glasses and water available.
Photographs Of The Cider Tasting Event
Alongside, the Cider tasting The Stable were very generous by offering us appetizers of bread, cheese, meat and dips which was a lovely surprise. I liked how they catered to those with dietary needs such as vegetarian. I enjoyed this cheese on bread as it went down well with the Cider. I thought they both complimented each other well. It also made it easier for me to get rid of the previous cider taste in my mouth. The photographs below will demonstrate the food provided along with a couple of glasses of Cider that I had the privilege of tasting.
Halfway through the Cider tasting, we were generously given 8 different pizzas for us all to try. I thought this was really nice of them to do as it was very unexpected. I thought that even just the appetizers were lovely then they did this for us too. As you can see the pizzas look incredible. I am so sorry if reading this post makes you hungry or thirsty, but honestly, they tasted so fresh and healthy and did not feel greasy at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas a lot. I am very impressed with how we were treated today at The Stable which I why I will definitely be returning very soon.
Thank you so much to The Stable who kindly held the blogger event for us. I had such a great time. I feel like I have said this a lot, but I really have loved every minute of it. It has been so much fun and I loved trying new Ciders for the first time. I am not a drinker at all, but I now feel like if I went to a Cider place or to The Stable, I would be able to order a drink that I am happy with and that I am comfortable with what I am drinking.
