Open from 5.00 pm till late.for house guests and the general public.

The Black Bear's restaurant atmosphere makes customers feel like they've been going there for ages even if it's their first visit. The inviting restaurant was established in 1957 by Max and Emma Sommer, who have since retired but their German and Austrian recipes live on and their most famous creations are still for sale.

Diners spend hours relaxing in the charming and softly lit wooden interior and the friendly but professional staff ensure guests are given a warm welcome and an enjoyable dining experience.

A range of good 'burgerliche kuche' or wholesome time-honoured food that includes specialities of wiener schnitzel and gulaschsuppe is always available. Start your meal with wurstsalat or a salad of strips of German sausage, tomatoes and onions, and move on to mains of pork fillet stuffed with Emmental cheese and ham, or lammkeule of braised shank of lamb in minted gravy, and end with homemade apple strudel or Swiss ice cream sundae.

A wide choice of Austrian and German beers and schnapps wine is yours for the taking.

Parties for up to fifty people can be hosted in this delightful refuge.
