Most rubbish pizza I have ever had. Horrible almost inedible base, and topping was so skimpy it may as well not have been there. A tasteless unenjoyable waste of money. Extremely slow service...Waiting, waiting waiting to check out and pay.

This is a place where one can grab a bite while they are up luging or ziplining. There isnt much on the menu but still theres quiet a lot to choose from.

Good selection of food, quick, friendly service. We chose gourmet pies which fitted the bill nicely on a good winter's day. Although this was very busy there were plenty of places to eat and service was prompt.
