Our short story
Located at the foothills of the beautiful Bükk, you will find Az Öreg Tölgy Bisztró. Our dishes typically represent Hungarian flavors, yet they are prepared with a modern and creative approach. Our love and respect for the forest are of utmost importance to us, and we are committed to using high-quality, natural ingredients. That’s why we only use the freshest ingredients, the majority of which are sourced from the surrounding forests and local producers.
The interior and ambiance of the restaurant enhance the classic rural bistro character with a touch of modernity, allowing guests to enjoy not only a delightful dining experience but also a relaxing and authentic environment.
In addition to our traditional and gourmet dishes, our guests can taste the finest wine selections of North Hungary.
Since Ancient Times
The bistro is located in Cserépfalu. A small town situated 22 km east of Eger, in the valley of Hór Valley.
The region has been inhabited since ancient times, and one of the most important archaeological sites of prehistoric research in Hungary, the Suba Cave, which has been under strict protection since 1982, can be found at the beginning of the valley.
In addition, there are numerous attractions in the village and its immediate vicinity. At the end of a narrow, rocky ridge, overlooking the Hór Valley, the ruins of the Ódor Castle once stood. On the clearing below Ódor Castle, you can find the Oszlai Heritage House, where you can learn about the unique life and activities of the forest-tending foresters and their everyday tools.
In Cserépfalu and its surroundings, you can encounter all the traces of the Bükkalja stone culture by walking along the Ördögtorony educational trail. Along the trail leading to Ördögtorony, the Berezdi Walkway, you can find the Kisamerikai cave dwellings, and above the Berezdi Walkway stands the Millennium Lookout Tower.
The village is also home to several rows of wine cellars, built in the original folk style, which are being restored in the same manner even today.
Walking through the streets of Cserépfalu, you can admire many original, arcaded peasant houses.
The Village House showcases the lifestyle of a middle-class family from the early 20th century, featuring everything from the clean room to the tool shed, using locally gathered materials.
