Hi Charlie! Heaps of great restaurants and bars!!
I'm a fan of the Trout Bar on the lake front - they have a great menu and reasonably priced, with happy hour drinks as well.
Tucked in behind the main bars and bakery on the lakefront is Sasanoki Japanese - they have a few seats, but mainly takeaway - yummy meals for approx $10! and Finchy's (central town) do a $10 lunch menu if you're taking a day off from the slopes.
Post office lane has huge open fire places and pool tables. You'll find two bars down here.
Be sure to try out our locally brewed beer aswell - Brewski - you can get in on tap from Kai Cafe on the corner of Helwick St and the lake front!
