Back by popular demand, Alexander's in Skipton are set to open their 'Off-Piste' pop-up restaurant for Winter among a number of exciting Christmas events.

  • Alpine-themed pop-up restaurant Off-Piste is returning to Alexander's from 18th November until January 2020.
  • Diners can experience an apres-ski inspired restaurant with faux fur blankets, fairy lights and an Alpine menu.
  • The restaurant also have a brand new Winter Terrace Bar, a Festive Dining Menu and Santa Sundays this festive season!

Back for a third year, pop-up restaurant Off-Piste is returning to the Secret Garden at Alexander's in Skipton complete with mulled wine, a range of Alpine-inspired food and delicious chocolate fondue!

Open from Monday 18th November until January 2020, Off-Piste returns with the usual warming Alpine atmosphere of log fires, fairy lights and faux fur blankets, but with a few slight tweaks to the experience including the addition of tarte flambée (Alpine Pizza!) and chefs preparing food within the tent itself.

From just £40pp, (and a children's menu at £20pp) diners can soak up the apres-ski atmosphere with a menu inspired by the snow-capped peaks of the Alps, including Frankfurter sausages and sauerkraut, Alpine stew served with tartiflette and a choice of mulled wine or cider.

Although there have been some slight tweaks from last year, the crowd-pleasing Chocolate Fondue will make another appearance!

Susannah Daley, one of the owners of Alexander's Skipton, expressed her excitement at bringing the pop-up restaurant back for a third year:  

"People can join us to see our beautiful Christmas tree display and get that whole Winter vibe, dress up warm and sit outside and look at the stars.

"I think the addition of having the chefs in the actual pop-up this year will mean people can watch them at work and hopefully have a bit of interaction with the chefs, who are really looking forward to it!"

Here's a glimpse of what you can expect from Off-Piste as it returns to Alexander's...
