It’s hard not to fall under the magical spell of this former sailor’s haunt from 1535, where ship models, lanterns, and other nautical memorabilia hang from paneled walls and ceilings above scrubbed-oak plank tables and high-backed wooden booths carved with the coats of arms of Baltic merchants. You can share a table in the main dining hall to enjoy baked black pudding with slices of apple and lamb’s lettuce (and other local favorites), or take a seat at the long bar. Wherever you sit, take a look at what might be the most enchainting artifacts of all, revolving lamps painted with scenes in which ships sail across the seas. Reservations recommended.
