Typical German pub style food and beer. A great option aside from the top tier Novalis restaurant. Good if a little slow on service.

located a few meters from the Burghotel Hardenberg this very nice place was the location for your Dinner (after driving 600km). The menu offers German classics and has a focus on the wild boar.

I had such pleasant memories from the last time I had dinner here, maybe 5 years ago, that I was happy to have the opportunity for a return visit. Well, either I have become much harder to please over the past several years, or this place has really gone to the dogs. Or hogs, to use the local mascot. The... More

With sincere apologies to Herr Nietzsche for misappropriating his text but perhaps the best alternative is to “boar" with friends and good company.

Good menu, bio-food or game, appropriate selection. Nice casual atmosphere, but still good quality. Good value for money.

Stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner. We sat outside and were approached by a waiter and my partner asked him to give us a few moments. He did so and pointedly so with a cold shoulder, and for so long that my wife had to ask a waitress going by to serve us instead. As we sat outside the... More

Dear nylicence, the description of your negative experiences made us very concerned. But 7-8 months later, it is no longer possible for us to recapitulate a single operation and to take a stand.

If you would you like to indulge in hearty regional specialities, try the KeilerSchanke tavern - located directly in the castle grounds - our very own parlour. As a part of the Graflich von Hardenberg'schen distillery, the KeilerSchanke offers you down-to-earth, rural cooking with game dishes from our own estate.

Inside you will find countryside comfort and outside a traditional beer garden. Try our wild boar lasagne - highly recommended. Next door, in the KeilerLounge, we indulge cigar and whisky aficionados with a large range of whiskeys and cigars from the house of Davidoff.
