Restaurant, Celebrations & Conferences


If you love fine Franconian cuisine, the Rotes Roß is the place to go. The inn is an excellent place to enjoy traditional specialties, such as our famous “Schäufele” (typical type of pork roast), but also international dishes that you will love. We buy our meat, vegetables and lettuces from regional farms, whenever possible, and we only serve carefully selected quality fish.

We believe that an excellent wine should be part of any great meal. Our wine cellar at the Rotes Roß provides a selection of Franconian wines and special bottles from other parts of the world.
