Christmas in the restaurant

Christmas in the 1700s was above all a time to feast. After months of frugality people could at last eat fresh bread and meat, and drink freshly brewed beer. Christmas in the 2000s is also a time to feast, and Gunnebo Kaffehus och Krog offers a taste experience that is far from traditional. Over the course of the year our chefs and bakers have preserved delicious ingredients from the kitchen gardens so they can present exciting new Christmas dishes. Gunnebo Kaffehus och Krog is in the characterful old servants quarters situated in the middle of the kitchen garden.

Under the light of the candles in the wrought iron chandelier and with a fire crackling in the woodburning stove your dining experience will be truly special. We serve Christmas Breakfast, Christmas Lunch and Christmas Dinner and have the highest KRAV organic certification.

FAMILY TOURS OF THE HOUSE AT CHRISTMAS

Christmas is just around the corner and the House is busy getting ready for the festive celebrations. Fru Hall has her hands full preparing the final details of the big Christmas party later that evening. The table has to be laid, the decorations must go up and she needs to get dressed up in her party outfit. Join the Christmas hustle and bustle around the House and hear all about how Christmas used to be celebrated, the House and the family.

MAKE YOUR OWN DECORATION UNDER THE CASTLE ARCHES

In the past adults and children used to gather around the table to make their own Christmas decorations. Paper was most commonly used, and they would make paper chains, crackers or beautiful cards. Have a go yourselves under the castle arches, and take home your own pretty decoration to hang on the Christmas tree.
