Eat & Drink

What’s to eat at Core?

We love bringing people together through food, cider and orchard views.

Orchard Bistro

Bask in these sun-drenched days at Core Cider! Kick back, sip on a cider and take in the fresh forest air – we’ll take care of the rest.

We are offering a Set Menu for dine in. Choose from 2 courses (entree & main OR main & dessert) for $48pp or 3 courses for $62pp. Kids can choose from our mini menu. For groups of 15+ please see our Group Menu.

Takeaway cider is available to purchase from the bar in the Orchard Bistro.
