It starts the winter time! There is a lot more from Grandma's kitchen! Whether green cabbage, oven-fresh pork chops or stew cabbage - something for everyone! Look at "menus" and find our special-menu! Good Appetite!

We're open again!

Of course, under strict conditions and restrictions!
This means that only people with complete vaccination protection have access (vaccination certificate or digital proof must be presented),
as well as recovered persons (official certificate must also be presented, the recovery must not be more than 6 months ago)!
This also applies to HOTEL GUESTS!

A table must be reserved in advance, in person, by telephone or by e-mail. All company regulations and measures must be accepted! An assigned table / seat may no longer be changed!

Everything else will be announced on site!

Changed opening times:
Daily from 11.30 a.m. - max. 10 p.m. (kitchen from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., last food orders until 8.45 p.m.)! The last drinks orders are accepted until 9.30 p.m.
For operational reasons, it may happen in the near future that we will not open until 4 p.m. on some days!

Admission to the company is only possible upon request. You will be assigned a table!

Our "to go service" will continue!
But only on request! I.e. please telephone to inquire whether the order can be prepared by us, as the reopening could possibly overload the kitchen!

Please all get through this difficult time safely, stay healthy and do not lose heart!

My father always said: "Keep your head up, straighten your hat, keep going!"

In this sense, all the best! We'll see you again, I promise!

best regards
