Hall & Woodhouse boast ‘high slopes’ for Christmas bars with surprise visit from Eddie the Eagle

November 2023

Eddie the Eagle, is set to open the Hall & Woodhaus Alpine Bar at The Olive Branch in Wimborne on December 1st at 7:30pm. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the iconic British Olympian and enjoy live music throughout the evening.

Michael Edwards, better known as “Eddie The Eagle” rose to fame during the 1988 Winter Olympics. Known for personifying the Olympic spirit and his determination to represent his country, Eddie’s story has inspired many athletes. Hall & Woodhouse’s unique Alpine Bars are designed to provide a traditional Bavarian apres-ski experience, suitably synergistic with Eddie’s winter sports fame.

Anthony Woodhouse, Chairman of Hall & Woodhouse, said: “Eddie the Eagle represents a determination to achieve your dreams and stay true to yourself, which are values we hold dear at Hall & Woodhouse. We are incredibly excited to welcome such a name in the sporting world to the Olive Branch this Christmas.

“Our Alpine Bars provide a special experience for many people and spells the beginning of the festive season for the Hall & Woodhouse family. We’re looking forward to sharing the space with our guests to celebrate Christmas, catch up, and simply relax.”

When visiting the bars, guests can expect to enjoy German-inspired sweet and savoury authentic pretzels, bratwurst rolls, and Alpine Platters this festive season. A speciality drinks menu will also be available with a selection of wintry favourites such as mulled wine and traditional steins of German Helles lager.

The Hall & Woodhaus Alpine Bar, which is also in situ at The Brewery Tap in Blandford, will be open until December 31st. Booking is recommended. Opening times for the Alpine Bar are as follows:

Monday: Closed

Tuesday – Thursday: 4.30pm – 11pm

Friday: 12pm -11pm

Saturday: 12pm – midnight
