Open log fire flat screens every corner. Service with a smile fast and effective, early afternoon mainly families in children running around. The Cocktails are cost effective. The seating is comfortable and they have booths. Its definitely worth a second visit.

We thought we would give Suitcase a go after years of doing our end of skiing dinner at the Powerkeg. We should have stuck with tradition! No wait staff, poor bar staff and food that was really disappointing. I had the Calamari Salad, which is...More

Had a awesome time in the Suitcase over the weekend. The food was lovely, (proper hand cut chips) the staff were friendly and chatty. Overall a great atmosphere in the bar/restaurant, with a good selection of beersies and all is very reasonably priced.
