Core Cider House – 4/5
A short drive east of Perth is Pickering Brook, a lovely spot lined with farms and beautiful orchards. We pulled into Core for a light lunch and to try out a tasting tray of their five ciders.
My favourite was the pear cider, named Peace Core, which we enjoyed alongside a deliciously oozy warm thyme and garlic infused Brie and a creamy rabbit and fig pate. I’d make the drive out just for that pate.
The restaurant is open Thursday – Sunday and bookings are highly recommended. Find yourself a designated driver to bring along before you go!
