Three years ago, things were looking rather bleak for the old Filskov Kro, which became a royally privileged inn in 1853. Having been in the hands of the same family for four generations, the inn was struggling and facing closure when it was bought up by a group of local investors. Determined to save the historic place, the new owners initiated an extensive renovation and modernisation and began looking for someone to bring the hotel and restaurant into the next century. The choice fell on Bent Sandfeld, an experienced local restaurateur, and his wife Louise Sandfeld. Today the inn is thriving again, not only thanks to its modernised interiors but also to a great extent because of the restaurant’s growing reputation for quality, innovation and tradition.
