A Swiss chalet is coming to York Christmas market with pop-up bar and Andrew Pern restaurant
Christmas in York is set to look very different this year with a brand-new food and beverage offering taking pride of place at York Christmas Market.
The Winter Hütte makes its debut on 17th November as the place to be seen this Christmas. The pop-up, two-storeyed traditional Swiss Chalet will be located at the bottom of Parliament Street and offers a spectacular upper terrace overlooking the Christmas Market.
The Winter Hütte comprises a fully licensed bar area downstairs serving seasonal favourites such as gluhwein and hot chocolate, with a gourmet sausage stall catering for patrons as well as passers-by outside. Upstairs a new restaurant from one of Yorkshire’s best-known chefs, the Michelin-starred Andrew Pern, offers a ‘Swiss with a Twist’ dining experience, while the outdoor terrace makes a unique setting for a festive drink.
The team behind the concept is led by Johnny Cooper, of York-based Coopers Marquees, one of the largest marquee companies in the UK. Johnny is delighted to be showcasing this exciting project.
“The wooden Swiss Chalet concept was born a couple of years ago following a desire to build something new and exciting for York. The Winter Hütte‘s cosy alpine décor, cow bells and mountains of cheese will have you yodelling through the streets of York!”
A full menu can be found on the website and booking is recommended for the restaurant as well as the outdoor drinks terrace at www.winterhutte.co.uk.
A deposit of £15 per person is required for the booking and will be fully redeemable against the final bill. For full terms and conditions, please visit the website.
