Lucerne's Fondue and Spirits

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Lucerne's Fondue and Spirits

Although the spirits in the name of this old-fashioned fondue restaurant refers to alcohol, it could also refer to a number of ghosts reported by staff and diners throughout its history. The residence that houses the establishment dates back to 1895, and was formerly occupied by the Utter family, some of whom are rumoured to have never left. Mysterious phone calls have been made by an unseen entity, while the lights frequently turn on and off of their own accord.
