Have come here twice for lunches while passing by. I fall in love with the place. A bit worn interior, home-like kind hospitality and service. The lunch buffet was like the cooking of my beloved Grandma long ago, simple but tasty. This is a hidden gem, worth many more visitors. Must be a nice place for parties or family gatherings.

Our group stumbled upon Forsbacka Wardshus on a road trip through Sweden. Very charming, traditional restaurant (I believe only open for lunch) with a wonderful "old world" flavor to everything -- the service, the food, the beautiful surroundings. The menu is small but good (with the usual semi-heavy Swedish offerings) and it is not terribly expensive.

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!
