Where miners were served their meals

Try our spareribs - made on our charcoaled grill

Coal Miners' Bar & Grill was opened in 1948 and is known to the locals as "Stormessa" – the big mess hall. Miners were served their meals here inbetween long shifts working in the mines. They worked three shifts, and the mess hall was open 24 hours per day. During the 1960s, a dairy was established in the cellar of mess hall in addition to the bathroom, post office and where the miners got their salary.

After extensive renovations to the Stormessa the guesthouse has been reopened and renamed as the Coal Miners’ Cabins, and the mess hall has become the Coal Miners’ Bar & Grill. Here you will find a menu made for the modern Arctic direct from the grill – real food for real explorers!
