Very enjoyable lunch

Ate here after a visit to the Passchendaele 1917 Museum and had a very good meal. The Fish Pie was packed with fish and the staff very friendly and attentive. Good menu choice. A real find.

This is a good place for food stop during your battlefield tours in Ypres Salient. Value for money. Good food and drinks, for individuals and even groups are welcome. Fast and professional service by the innkeeper Simon and his friendly staff! A place worth a stop to absorb the emotions from the pilgrimage tours.

We enjoyed some time after our Flanders Fields visit here on the sunny terrace! The service was quick and very friendly and we needed to take a minute before being able to choose from their impressive beer list! The food looked good too and was reasonably priced, will be back here when in the area again to try some food... More

This is a gem of a place. The food and beer is top notch and the staff are likewise top notch and friendly. The menu is good and varied. All in all this is a pleasantly comfortable place to stop, rest, and eat. If I have the good fortune ever to be Zonnebeke I'll have my lunch or dinner here.... More

Such a contrast to our disappointment in Ypres - my son had steak and chips and I had Flanders beefstew. Both cooked perfectly and the service was quick and friendly.

Over 100 beers on offer - good price, friendly staff. Burger was decent too and it's right next to Paschendale Museum, worth a visit.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The people are very friendly and attentive. The menu is large and varied and there were lots of people of different nationalities in the restaurant. I had a beer and Croque Boem Boem (essentially a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with bolognese sauce) and a salad. My waiter was in his twenties and spoke 4... More

Stopped by on a long cycle ride by chance & what a find. The beer list made 128 beers with 125 available at the time of our visit. The menu ranged from light snacks right through to steaks & everything in-between. I had the Stoofvlees (Flemish beef stew) & my wife the chicken Vol-au-Vont both were of the best quality.... More

We came here for a mid morning snack before visiting the museum. Lively atmosphere, historic building, nice fresh sandwiches and cake.
