Our favourite spot to grab a bite or a drink was: Valhalla, perfect for a highway stop. Offering a Viking-themed experience, you can try tasty on-tap beverages or delve into one of the many flavours of wood-fired pizza. The ginger beer was a highlight, along with the Njord chilli prawn pizza. If you want a take-home cow’s horn cup, you can extend your Viking experience past the bar and purchase one of their many souvenirs.
