“Wonderful Surroundings”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Was taken here by Swedish friends for a long afternoon lunch to have a genuine Swedish experience. Staff were friendly and the décor authentic. Menu was limited but the food was good. After the meal coffee and biscuits in the sun on the terrace and the hostess kept replenishing the coffee. Situated in pretty historic area not too far from Gavle, worth a visit if you are from overseas.There is accommodation available.

“Good lunch!”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

We often go here to eat lunch. The food is good and is does not cost too much either. I like the old historical surroundings. The restaurant/inn (and hotel) is family owned, which you can feel when you enter Forsbacka Wärdshus!

“ancient place to”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

Forsbacka wardshus is between Gavle and Sandviken in an old impressive buildung from the 17th century. It is an ideal place for groups It also offers hotelrooms which offer a pretty nice stay in a historic swdish house. The restaurant room is impressive, huge with a view to the rooftop. All walls are painted with nice pictures and give the rooms a very nice athmosphere (like in an old castle). We were told that we should come again at christmas time because then they offer an impressive smörgasbord with traditional swedish dishes. Good to know and to plan for the next season. I can recommend to visit this place if you are aorund in the Gävle area.
