    I need to make a booking (for 5) for a restaurant on Saturday 13th /August (Nikki's 22nd Birthday!)

    Can anyone offer any reviews of the various options.


    We are looking for more than a pub meal, but dont want to bankrupt myself in the process.

    any good suggestions?

    I think Knickerbocker would be a good option. It's owned by Brad and Monika Spalding who have the Wild Brumby schnapps distillery and the menu looks good and is reasonably priced for in-snow dining.

    I'll have to catch up with you that weekend. I'm playing in a charity fundraising rugby match in Jindabyne on Saturday afternoon but will be staying in Thredbo on Friday and Saturday nights.

    I have one for you....Knickerbocker.

    I tried a few and this knocked it out of the park.
    Attentive, professional service. Very reasonable prices (read cheaper than others that offered less service and lower quality food). Tight menu. Good beer. Often give you a complimentary Wildbrumby schnapps!
    Nice views. Nice mix of modern and trad alpine decor

    thanks Peeps, I've made a booking (7.30pm, Saturday 13th August).

    Would love it if anyone is in Thredbo at the time to join us.

    Anyone interested?

    (and no, I'm not paying for you!!)

    perhaps, but there's no way I'm celebrating a 21st - she'll want a more expensive present

    I took a bottle of that to Suski and Spatto's Season Opener that never got touched.
    [​IMG] wonder why?

    But sorry Sn0wb0red you wont get Gareth with that - he doesn't drink.
    I, however, fell mightily for the chili shots on the hill last year. Thanks Muzza [​IMG]
