Zur Sonne dates back to 1608 and is housed in a fine half-timbered building. The interior features some of the original beams no less. It’s been run by a Greek family since 2005 and their warm hospitality shows. The owner was quite proud of the building and showed me the beam dated in the 1600s. It was a fine day so no one was sitting inside. The outside area is nicely shaded and quite busy on the weekday lunch I visited.

There was only one group sitting there when I got off the bus so I walked around the small village and took some photos. By the time I got back, I got one of the last tables. I started off with their Ammerndorfer Hell and ordered a Greek bean soup, which was delicious.

Though they had a small menu of Franconian dishes, everyone was eating Greek food and it smelled good so I followed suit. I also moved onto their Pils, followed up by their Weissbier.

While finishing up my very tasty Souvlaki, I had the Ammerndorfer Landbier Dunkel which I’d saved for last.

I’ll admit to being initially disappointed to hear this was a Greek restaurant but the food was really excellent and the service friendly and attentive, not something I can say often in the pub world of Franconia.
