Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Cardrona Hotel serves up a modern take on traditional pub fare. Fresh, fast and filling you’ll find all your traditional favourites created from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Our wine list features top quality local drops from some of the region’s best wineries, along with a great selection of both tap and bottled beers, ciders and a full range of spirits.

In winter the après ski is legendary, while the sunny beer garden is the perfect summertime spot for a long lunch.
