Nipped in for a quick drink on Friday lunchtime pre-brunch. The bartender was very friendly and super helpful. For those visiting from a country that has now banned smoking inside it's a really sensory trip down memory lane! You can see the indoor ski slopes...More

Great meal, with the family that serves beers, wines and spirits. For a family of four, main course, desert, wine and soft drinks £137.00. Restaurant was a little smoky, even in the non-smoking area. Great view of the ski slope though. Recommended.
