Went in for a hot drink as it was one of the few places open about 5.30 pm. Had a pot of tea and a Guinness! Decided to stay for a meal which was excellent and good value

I've eaten at Valkenburg several times and have never been disappointed. Good food and exceptional service. They usually have a good selection of specials and will do their best to prepare food to suit your taste.

Place with special history; because we live near by Valkenburg in Holland, we asked the owner about the name and we got to know the interesting history !

I had the chicken goujons and chips, my mother had the stir fry. Both were delicious and served by friendly staff. The stir fry however did upset my mother's tummy later and we really arent sure why as there was nothing wrong with it; it comes with a "spicy" warning but doesnt taste spicy but perhaps there was some irritant...
