Hot on the heels of the major refurbishment in 2017 that helped create the award winning North East Tourism Pub of the Year 2017, The Apple Inn at Lucker gastro pub, it's sister eatery, The Apple Core at Lucker reopens it doors on Good Friday, 30th March 2018 at 4.00pm, having undergone its own major transformation following significant investment!


Front of house the newly transformed restaurant has been redesigned and extended, providing bright and spacious contemporary surroundings that also capture some of the historic stonework of the building, creating a redesigned bar area that allows customers to benefit from a wider selection of real ales, draught beers and spirits, in addition to its established quality wine menu. The new restaurant area has an additional 30 covers which, as a result of customer feedback will be a dog friendly area. This area is sure to prove very popular, so it's very advisable to book ahead!


Behind the scenes the kitchen and food preparation areas have been extended to meet the additional capacity in the restaurant, as well as to allow the existing very popular Mediterranean style menu which includes freshly cooked Pizza, Pasta & Galette & Crepe dishes to be extended to give customers a new choice of Fish & Meat dishes.
