Visited on a Friday evening for dinner. This place looks very nice, has a cozy feel to it, lots of wood. Basically this is a restaurant with a (world class) brewery attached to it. Food was very nice, had gamba’s and some savoury snacks as a starter. Not cheap, same goes for the (excellent) beer. Beer shop is has a great selection, but way overpriced imo. Annual beer festival is a must visit.

What can one say about this place. Home of one of Europe’s best brewers and probably my favourite European brewery. Located in a lovely little town, an east train ride from Amsterdam. Wonderful building with a working Mill. Cracking little shop, if a little over priced at times. Would love to get here outwith the main festival (but theres only so much time) Still during festival food great(and there mass catering) range is amazing but its clear that normally the range is still pretty impressive. All told worth a visit anytime your in Amsterdam or even Holand

Nice restaurant but certainly a very nice beershop. I don’t think there’s any other store in The Netherlands which has such a variaty of American and Scandinavian beers, as well as beers from other countries all over the world. Very nice and knowledgeable staff.

With mixed emotions, I am adding an offkey note to the ratings for de Molen. The place is stunning, situated on a commanding location that almost dominates the small, tidy, and prosperous town of Bodegraven. The beers were fantastic, and the shop was well stocked with interesting beers in addition to the incredible Molen beers. The only fly in the ointment was that one barmaid was left alone to provide service in the shop, in the restaurant, and behind the bar. Sabrina was very friendly and sufficiently knowledgeable, but she couldn’t be at all three places at once. We were informed that the owner was on vacation, so I hope that this situation was the exception rather than the rule. The fact that there were no natives in de Molen makes me think otherwise. Let’s all hope that we beer lovers continue to have a place like de Molen to love, instead of possibly losing it to a case of artistic success, but commercial failure.

Nice looking restaurant in a windmill. A nice and rustique looking brewpub is in the same building, which is were we were sitting.
Well worth visiting for the great selection of Molen beers on tap and bottle, and most (including me) can’t resist a small excursion to the shop in the building.
The only down side is that the staff is rather unknowing of the products or beer in general. Maybe this is because we were there on a quiet Sunday afternoon, but from friends I heard similar experiences.

This is a place worth going out of your way for. We were there at a very slow time and given excellent service by an incredibly friendly staff who knows their beer well. The bottle room is worth a visit on its own and is well-stocked with a few surprising treasures. The beer was reasonably priced, with only two disappointments out of about 15 that we tried (though none of their beer is bad!). The ambience, the service and the extraordinary craft beer makes de Molen an absolute must-see in Holland.

Great little brewpub, likely to expand a bit when the brewkit moves across the road. Excellent beer, great quality food selection. Prices in the shop are very much on the high side, especially for their own brands, but worth it for an occasional treat.
