Small place which was a fine around option with a tour. The leek soup starter was very good. My husbands pork knuckle was good but my spaetzle with cheese was not. Too much Parmesan cheese with what tasted like canned fried onions on top. Drink...More

Awesome chow. Highly recommend. The schweinhaxen and schnitzel in wine sauce were great, as was the brautwurst - a hit with the kids.

We loved our visit. The food was good and the service was very friendly and helpful. The cordon blue was fabulous! Portion sizes were good and we loved the homemade sausage.

Popped in for lunch with my wife as she had a yearning for potato pancakes. They were on the menus served with smoked salmon and a dill sauce. Pancakes were thin and crisp with generous portion of smoked salmon. Service with a smile and good...More

A group of us went here for a specialty local food dinner. I had the Pork knuckle with potatoe dumplings & it was amazing. Also the choice of local cakes were fabulous. Their mum prepares all the "local" food.
