eating out - friden gårdskrog


One gem of a place (yes, a veritable smultronställe) to eat at, we found on holiday in Scania last year - oh summer gone by where art thou' - was Friden gårdskrog (~The Peace farm inn).

Tucked away at the end of a dirt road in the beautiful countryside (quite tricky to find) of apple kingdom Kivik this former apple orchard is a real unpretentious haven that serves (mainly) luxury pizzas with unusual toppings (made from organic and locally produced ingredients if possible). The whole menu is seasonally based.



Booking is essential, the place is quite small and I can only imagine how crowded it must be during the colder months when there's no outdoor seating available. We were lucky to get a table just the day before we headed back home last, unfortunately it was for early dinner and we were rather full still after a late naughty lunch (of which there will be tell tell in a later post. Yes I am working my way through a backlog of blog post drafts...). So I can't say I enjoyed the meal as much as I would have been hungry for real. And dessert was really very much out of the question (bu-hu).


But yes, the pizzas were really very lovely. Very fresh, very pleasing to the eye. A reasonable selection of vegetarian options to chose from, and every pizza with clever names. And if one isn't vegetarian the seafood pizza looked luxurious and was really very good. I was told.



Friden also produce their own apple juice (which we didn't try alas) and spirituous beverage. As well as having four B&B double rooms to let at a reasonable price. They have a huge garden surrounding the property and a playground for children amongst the greenery.



I think it was, is, a wonderful, unpretentious place for a meal. It must be really very nice to live nearby being able to pop by more regularly than on the odd summer holiday and such... Thus:

Food - 4/5
Service - 3/5
Ambiance - 4/5 (but too warm to sit indoors on a hot summer day)
Value for money - 4/5

Du gör det jag VELAT göra, blogga om ställen jag varit på och hur det varit där. Ställen som i mat- och fikaställen. No wonder jag gillar din blogg, även om jag emellanåt kan känna att Men vad fanken, kom igen nu, gör det du med! Sagt till mig själv. Fast det är inte ofta så här fina ställen det handlar om! :)
