The old inn, which features in several highwayman legends, was one of the most well known wayside inns along the market routes of the West-Transdanubian region. It is still a popular site for excursions. Objects displayed in the bar evoke the bygone days of the outlaws.
In the middle of the 19th century bandits like Sour Joe (Savanyú Jóska), Blind Elisha (Vak Illés) and Stoneknife Steve (Kőkés Pista), were frequent and rather unpredictible visitors of the inn. They were betrayed and in 1862 the local constables trapped them in a cellar on Rezi Hill. Killed in the ambush, the outlaws were buried under the willow tree next to the Inn."
