Great 18th Century dockside tavern transplanted from the actual docks to the edges of the museum. A wonderful old building with mismatched rooms, wooden floors, random doorways and not always vertical walls.

The best thing is the food is excellent too. A relatively compact menu of about 4 choices per course but covering a fair diversity. Norwegian food can be a bit dour particularly when it's "traditional" but these dishes were full of flavour.

It's not in the usual tourist strips and it's well worth the detour.

This is a great place to visit if you want to have an impression of traditional Norway. The restaurant is located in an old inn, and located next to the open air museum. It has a lot of small rooms decorated with traditional furniture. It's not a place for fine dining, but if you want to experience typical Norwegian food in a traditional environment, you came to the right place. The staff is friendly and helpfull.

This is an old Tavern at the edge of the Sverresborg Folk Museum. They serve a small collection of traditional norwegian food, with fixed weekly menus. A limited selection and bit pricey, but this is Norway. Anyway, the athmosphere is relaxed and the interiors are cosy (and very old). It can alos be a very nice place for meeting a few friends for a cup of coffe or some beers, play cards - or just read a book while relaxing for Yourself.

My grandfather's people came from just north of Trondheim, and the potato dumpling known in Norway as many things, but in this area as "Klubb" was his favorite food. The only version I can recall tasting was my grandmother's (whose people came from Nordfjord and make it a bit different) and of course my mother's version of her recipe. So I am not a well-versed critic. However, I can state that the items offered here taste exactly like my grandmother's. There were some sauces and accompaniments that were never seen on my grandparents table. But I quickly adapted.

The klubb is only offered one night a week and is the buffet dinner of the evening, as has been mentioned in the Norwegian review. So that is a bit of a downside. However, it is quite reasonably priced as things go in Trondheim. And you can eat your fill. I decided three of the bigger-than-a-baseball dumplings were enough.

I do have to point out, that the building is quite old and the evening was quite warm. Inside the restaurant the heat was stifling. I would not have eaten there but fortunately, in the summer, you can sit outside. I took advantage of that opportunity along with a half liter of draft beer. All for Nkr 211.00. And the beer was 1/3 of the cost. It appeared to me that most of the diners were Norwegian. I can't say if they were locals.
