Great food, great hosts and great company. Will always do their best to accommodate a gluten free menu too. If you're in or near Burgau then definitely pay a visit.

In a scene which parodied the biblical tale depicted in the good book,there was indeed no room at the inn.Infact there had been no room since mid October,due largely to the immense popularity of our establishment on Christmas Day.You...

Full of smoke and grotty. Food wasn't being served so can't comment. But I am sure you wouldn't be able to taste it with the smoke anyway.
