  • cold hamburger perhaps left over from day before, with luke warm dish watery soup without any flavour that you could nail except cider and a parsley flake. Really good olives. No service. Perhaps dinn...  more »
  • I have been to Merrydale in the past, for cider and a wedding. Both we wonderful and well executed. This time we went to taste they distillary products. It passed the test. Tasted great and wonderfull...  more »
  • Excellent lunch and interesting variety of ciders. The service was amazing. We were short of time, so did not get to take advantage of the tour. A good lunch stop while touring the wine country. Funny...  more »
  • Really enjoyed our quick stop here. They have a great variety of Ciders and some cool other options, if cider isn't quite your thing and you're just along for the ride. I'd definitely recommend their copper gin.
  • Planned on using the cidery as our wedding venue. After our initial meeting and informing them of our budget (which they agreed to) we put a deposit of $700 down. On our second meeting they gave us a breakdown of costs which exceeded our budget quite a bit. We left the meeting to discuss things privately and decided that it was too costly. We contacted Merridale informing that them that they had exceeded our budget and believed that since it had only been a month (they had 9 months still to fill the date we had booked) and it was their fault we deserved the down payment back. They did not agree with that and since they held the money there was not much we could do. So in the end they pocketed $700 for 2 meetings.
  • Fantastic facility 45 minutes from Victoria. Tasting room and bistro open daily except December 25th. Excellent selection of ciders, some of which are available to be poured into your growler. Reasonable priced flights for sampling supplied by knowledgeable staff
  • Very nice. Friendly staff and beautiful establishment.
  • Nice place but lousy service. The food is hit and miss. I will still go back because it's fun there. One day the food is good, next the pits. They need some quality control.
