Fodor's Review

Neighboring farms supply much of the fare at this bistro, tucked down a country lane at Merridale Ciderworks. The bistro, part of the gambrel-roofed cider house, showcases local art on whitewashed walls within, and orchard and forest views from the wide, covered veranda. You can match house-made ciders to your lunch of porchetta sandwich, cider-braised pork ribs, or a simple salad of organic greens, goat cheese, and spiced nuts tossed in an apple cider vinaigrette. The Brick Oven Bakery offer baked goods on weekends. On Summer Sundays, locals flock here for brick-oven pizza and live music. During winter, the bistro is open for dinner Friday and weekend evenings from late October to the first week of January.
