Restaurant Ministeren is located at Bårdshaug Herregård, in the centre of the small town of Orkanger.

We serve food based in the French and Scandinavian kitchen. The produce we use are mainly from Trøndelag, and we also cooperate with local farmers and producers which products are in top class.

Restaurant Ministeren, as well as the historical manor, is a part of the family driven hotel with the name Bårdshaug Herregård. The restaurant is available both for hotel guests and outside guests. We look forward to see you!


Restaurant Ministeren has its name from Christian Thams (1867-1948) who were «Ministre plénipotentiaire» (a official accredited representative) for the state of Monaco in Paris. Christian Thams lived at Bårdshaug Herregård, in the beautiful, fairytale-like manor during the early 20th century.
