It’s not necessarily something listed as being sold. Scrumpy is normally purchased in Cornwall. There is an abundance of ciders around now so depends what you’re looking for. Mostly are bottled but scrumpy is traditionally flat cider with no fizz.

Yep, Somerset is the home of scrumpy, though there are scrumpy makers in most southern counties, from Kent to Cornwall - including a couple in the New Forest west of Southampton.
But outside Somerset the stuff is difficult to find except at beer festivals & such.
Pubs beyond Somerset tend to stock bottled ciders - some of them have fancy outlandish names, but they're fizzy factory-produced ciders rather than flat & mouth-puckering farmyard scrumpy

But can you handle the genuine farmyard stuff?
It's truly ruddy awful

More scrumpy is consumed in Somerset than the rest of the UK put together.
Somerset also has a very high count of UFO sightings.
Just sayin'.

LOL, I suppose I don't really need to try the raw scrumpy but perhaps some processed stuff will suffice.

More breweries are now doing 'Craft Ciders', a bit like 'Real Ale'. I Know Wetherspoons pubs have them on tap.

There’s a microbrewery down on the waterfront near all the cruise terminals called dancing man brewery. Not sure on scrumpy but some very interesting beers in there and sometimes a cider. http://www.dancingmanbrewery.co.uk/

An alternative to whetherspoons

In the UK we have a pub group called Wetherspoons and they have a few pubs in Southampton. They normally have some exceptional beers and ciders and regularly feature small breweries and ciders but also sell their drinks and food at lower prices. They also have a very good range of ciders both bottled and cask.

This site tells you about the bers and the pubs they have in Southampton. If you download the app it will also tell you specifically what drinks are sold in each.
