We welcome you to our nearly 100-year-old historic venue.
Kronan was originally a grand old cinema dating back to 1928. The ceiling is listed and was painted by hand by the master painter Axel Malmström. In 1991, the cinema was converted into a restaurant.
Kronan currently has seating for 180 people, and at our larger events we are able to accommodate 540 guests on our premises. The balcony is home to the cinema’s old projector room, which we have converted into a whisky VIP section, which is currently only 350 bottles away from becoming the largest collection of single malt whiskies in the world.
The collection has grown a lot, so nowadays our bottles have become part of the decor throughout the restaurant, which creates a wonderful atmosphere. In autumn 2019 we took another big step in our efforts to create something unique. We converted parts of the property into bed and breakfast rooms, with all the rooms decorated with their own personal character, based on a particular whisky.
Our efforts have been a success, with a high occupancy rate and much acclaim from our guests. Kronan is a family business run by Richard, Linda and Peter Olsson. All of whom grew up in the local area. We really want everyone to feel welcome and at home here at Kronan.
A sustainable culinary experience with locally produced ingredients
We are part of the Lokal Meny (Local Menu) project, in which we work with others to use local and sustainably produced ingredients as much as possible. This is something we’re really passionate about here at Kronan and we feel proud to have so many fantastic suppliers in our local area. Sivans Ost, Adelsåsens Kalkon, Stommen in Long and Svartemadens Potatis to name but a few. We want our visitors to enjoy a sustainable, locally produced culinary experience!
We sort all our glass, plastic and paper for recycling because that’s an issue close to our hearts!
Sustainability is also important at our Bed & Breakfast. We order our linen from Elis, a company that works hard on environmental and sustainability issues. And as they are a local company, we can drop off and collect our linen easily using our electric car. That’s important to us!
We are currently working on building accessibility-adapted rooms – which will be ready soon. The restaurant has an entrance for wheelchair users.
