The building stands on the site of a former mill, which was built in 1540. In the 1860s, the mill ceased to be used for its purposes and was rebuilt in the so called Egerland style into a building, with a popular restaurant mainly offering regional dishes. In 2004 the building was sensitively reconstructed in accordance with the regional architectural style.
