What is a capon?
In the past, the capon was the symbol of abundance and was typically consumed by privileged social groups. It was especially served at castles and sumptuous bishops’ feasts.
Capons are bread only for their prized white meat; an animal weighs from 2.2 to 3 kilograms, and is bigger than a regular chicken. The juicy and tasty flesh is why it will please each and every lover of poultry. Unlike hens and pigs, its fat is not accumulated in one location, but is evenly distributed between the strands of muscle tissue.
In the days of old, capons were only prepared on holidays and special occasions, but today, our inn serves them throughout the year. Due to the preparation procedure and to achieve the desired quality, patrons are required to reserve it in advance.
