Great food and great beer

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.... read 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.

Stopped here for pre-planned lunch on our coach tour. Were provided with lovely Belgian beer and the most fabulous lunch of cheese, ham, bread and salad. The cheese was Passchendaele and was one of the best cheeses we have ever tasted (so wonderful we just had to buy some in Ypres before returning to England), local ham that was so... More

This is opposite the excellent Passchendale Museum. From the ouside it looks drab, and the inside maybe a bit too tidy, almost school canteenish. But then the menu (in Flemish but easy to work out) comes and you discover 126 different beers. The food is straight forward but absolutely excellent and delivered very quickly. Thi is the ideal place for... More
