Great food and ubelieveable atmosphere

Walk straight into several hundred years of history and select top dishes, among them several very "home made". Couples, family, small or medium-size parties - what about a "chambre separee" ? A guearenteed memorable night out !

We visited Bærums Verk Vertshuset, hoping for a romantic dinner. We were not disappinted. The small wooden house and its old tranditional norwegian furniture are sensational. There are several separat small dining rooms which ensures privacy if preferred. We had a tiny room all for ourselves which was just perfect for us. The service was excellent. Food was served up...

Vertshuset Bærums Verk is really a special place. It is situated in small wooden buildings, the furniture in each room is like you see in great grandmothers pictures and each building has several small rooms so that every party can stay for themselves. The food is excellent and it is served with very polite and knowledgeable waitresses. The place has... More

Everything in this historic restaurant (Norways oldest) is an experience to be enjoyed. Service, presentation, ambience, delicious courses made with fresh ingredients all make for an unforgettable dining event. I have lived in Norway for 32 years and will attest to dining here for that something special, you won't be disappointed!

Came here for dinner and had a fabulous dining experience. The ambience is great, with the restaurant located in the countryside about 20 minutes from Sandvika and the motorway from Oslo. Very authentic and old surroundings make for a great ambience. The service was excellent, knowledgable and efficient as well as friendly, with the owner herself also serving. The food... More

The prices are quite stiff at this place but the lunch menu is not so bad (420kr for 3-course) The atmpophere is historic and very cozy. The food was excellent and the service was tip top! Would love to come back! Well... More

This is a restaurant best saved for very special occasions. It has excellent atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff, and some of the best restaurant food you can get in Norway. I have eaten there twice, am a picky eater, and the food is always excellent. But the prices are ridiculous, high even by Norwegian standards. The benefit is that it... More

We went to Værtshuset Bærums Verk for a family dinner. Because of a full restaurant we got oru very own room. Great service and atmosphere. You can litteraly feel the history in the walls. Food was excellent, but quite pricy. What the waiter lacked of knowledge on wine, was compensated with friendliness and knowledge of the buildings history.
