Description: ABOUT US At the end of Denmark's longest avenue, which is part of Ledreborg Castle, is Herthadalen located. The beautiful rooms, each with a private terrace overlooking Knapso, can accommodate 15-200 people and is a perfect setting for your outing, picnic, birthday, anniversary, weddings, christenings, meetings, courses, conferences etc. NB! If you / I want to visit our restaurant, we are open every Friday from April to December and for lunch during the summer. CONCEPT We want to use the principle of subsidiarity. Therefore we produce from Ledreborg, Land of Legends and Camps municipality and we have our own herb garden which we use daily. Another principle is that we want to use the entire animal from nose to tail, avoiding wastage. The menu and the cut is determined by the animals we have and what season we are. We provide therefore a sustainable product with an understanding of ecology and animal welfare - Happy Animals just tastes better! It's you as a guest, which is in the center, and our kitchen will work with you to create individual solutions. - Two parties are never the same.

Just a 40 minute drive outside of Copenhagen you find this amazing place all on its own in the middle of nowhere yet close to Ledreborg Castle. Beautifully preserved pavillions with thatched roof, a small lake and fields on all sides. Only open for walk ins on Friday evenings otherwise its only private parties, birthdays, weddings etc etc. Absolutely worth while, superb food so very well and prepared and presented, the staff are happy, they smile and you can feel it is their passion. I am looking for an occasion so I can visit again

The surroundings are beautiful, arrive 10 min before and take a look at the back, see the lake and get some photos. (Especially when visiting in autumn where it gets dark early)

The food is delicious, and the waiters takes good time presenting the food.

If you stay nearby for vacation, try this gem of a restaurant rather than travel to Roskilde or Copenhagen.

First, an aperitif at the terrace, overlooking the pond - then new nordic cuisine inside the old and beautifully restored building. Getting there presents the danish countryside from its best.

A superb culinary hideaway tucked away in the forest of the exquisite Ledreborg Castle. Elegant, creative servings of local produce with superb wines to match. Ambient, inviting atmosphere and dedicated service. If you are in that neck of the woods - pun intended - this is a superb place to visit. Only hickup is lack of coffees, but that shouldn't scare anybody away.

Can't fault the team. Food was brought out fresh, servings were generous and flavoursome. Despite only 2 waiting on a full-house we didn't have to flap for service or wait for clearance or topping up. Beautiful surroundings that completed the day perfectly.
