The Apple Core is a family-owned restaurant, located opposite The Apple Inn, in the village of Lucker, serving authentic Mediterranean dishes.
Our menu takes inspiration from alfresco dining on the continent with a selection of freshly prepared pizzas, pasta and seafood, as well as traditional French galettes & crepes.
Alongside our dishes, we also serve a selection of wines, premium draft beers, coffees & teas.
