Good, honest and old fashioned Danish food at a place that goes way back in time and history; even beyond generations and 2. WW. Feel the history and traditions embrace you from the moment you see the old inn and park your car!

A traditional Kro, over 325 years old. Very well kept and carefully restored. Lots of visitors for lunch on a wednesday, so service was slightly slow, but that was understandable. Very friendly waiters and wonderful traditional food.
