Food & drink

Elfingrove is the coolest spot to hang out this winter – get a sugar rush at Candy Land – the sweetest spot in town, hang out with a bier and bite to eat at our Apres Skate Bar or cosy up with piping hot fondue at the bookable Skate Side Dining overlooking the rink as you watch skaters glide (or collide) on ice.
