Mini chalets can be booked for up to 10 people in 1 hour 55 minute time slots. They are available at any time during our opening hours and cost £20 per chalet. (Last booking slot is 9pm)

The Bavarian Bier hall is open Friday & Saturday evenings. Seating reservations are free, however we require a deposit of £2 per person by way of a card authorisation. In the event of a complete no show, your card will be charged. We also hold a small amount of seating for walk ins, this is on a first come, first serve basis and will fill up quickly on weekends.

There is plenty of seating in the main bar Après Bar area, but we don't not take reservations and it is on a first come, first serve basis.

If I could give zero stars I would. My friends and I was extremely disappointed. There was no atmosphere and the drink prices were extortionate. We had booked 2 slots but we didn't even stay for the whole of our first slot. We moved to the Christmas bar where the drinks were much more reasonably priced and the atmosphere was exactly what we has expected from you bar but didn't get.

The evening was good fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. To improve the evening, some nibbles on the tables in the chalet as part of the booking would have been a nice added touch and the window side could be one way viewing, so no one can see in as we had an uninvited guest peering through the window! We cannot fault our host Rachel, she was amazing and looked after us really well.

The live music was really good but it should have been on later and also a little less loud. Despite sitting the furthest away we couldn't talk to each other while live music was on and he finished by 9. Would have been better to do a set from 9.00 to 10.30 in my opinion as audience would have been more engaged. Also ladies toilets reeked, haven't smelt anything that bad since reading festival. Finally drinks were overpriced which was a shame as left you feeling a bit ripped off. Burgers were really tasty though.

Great evening, very Christmassy! Chalet was warm and cozy with extra blankets if needed. Nicely decorated for the festive season. Our waitress Laura was very attentive and super friendly. We had a great evening! Hope to book again!

Amazing service from Lucy during our bottomless brunch - experience slightly ruined when we were kicked out of our hut by another lady arriving on shift, we were told because a booking was going in however the hit was shut and no one went in after. Again amazing service by Lucy!

Hi Olivia, Thanks for letting us know about your experience. As you can imagine the chalet bookings are very busy that late in December so we need to prepare them for other customers who are booked in. If the chalet wasn't occupied after you that must have been a booking that didn't show up. We wouldn't have asked you to move just for the sake of it. We hope this didn't dampen the experience too much. Many thanks, Jonathan

I booked a table for 8 people and when we arrived had been allocated 1 bench which was far too small to fit usvround. Luckily we found some stools as well but this table shouldn’t have been allocated to so many people. The barmaid Lucy was great as she helped get our drinks direct to our table to avoid queuing. The prosecco was far too expensive

Hi Nikki, Thanks for your feedback, our benches are designed to have up to 6 people on each so I'm not sure why you weren't allocated 2 benches for your group. I apologise for the communication breakdown our end. re: The price of Prosecco - We do a lot of research locally when pricing our products and our prosecco is cheaper than many of the mainstream venues in the town. Many thanks, Jonathan

Arrived and had to wait 20 minutes to be taken to our lodge. Then another 20 minutes before we received our drinks.

We had a great night for our office Christmas party. Jonathan and Ben were extremely helpful with helping me organise the event. All of the staff were great on the night and my colleagues have been really complementary.The atmosphere was really festive and the live music was a great touch. My only criticism would be that the toilets were not in great shape, but probably to be expected for port-a-loos!
