About Après Bar

The Après Bar is back at Station Hill this Christmas!

🎄 SEATING RESERVATIONS 🎄
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.

🎅🏻 MINI CHALETS 🎅🏻
Our mini chalets are the a great place to socialise with friends. Each one seats up to 10 people and is decorated with cosy festive decor and blankets. (Multiple time slots can be booked if you want to stay longer)

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!

Loved it and coming back on 28th. Not so keen on the white wine you sell. If you could change that or have more options that would be perfect

We had an amazing time! The pizzas were delicious and the staff were friendly, particularly Chloe who was very welcoming and attentive. A lovely experience for my mum and dad who wouldn't normally have done this sort of activity but they thoroughly loved it. Would recommend.

Great evening on a really cold night, which added to the atmosphere. Loads of heaters and blankets. Great Pizza. Beer was a bit pricey, but the german lager was very moreish.

Good atmosphere and range of drinks. Although having reserved seating, no one came to meet us or speak to us about the deposit we had already paid and should have been receiving back towards are drinks. This was rectified but only by us going and speaking to a member of staff.

Lovely 2 hours in a hut booked some time ago. We did have reservations we saw the same booking on Groupon which included a drink but the Manager came to visit us and brought a round so everyone was very happy. The atmosphere was great, live music was very good and the huts are cute and Christmassy! Overall lovely visit and would definitely be booking again!
