Stopped in here for dinner one evening with the beercyclying crew. We placed our food orders a couple hours earlier so they could get a head start. The meal came with a small tasting, that we did mostly the first time we came here. They had 10 beers on tap, plus you could order anything from the shop in the back. There is an up charge though, so nobody wanted to do that. The food was all very good. I ordered the special of the day (swan) and an appetizer. Together with my wife, we spent about 70 euros. We each had an entree, appetizer, and I had two beers. Not bad considering the type of food, quality, and quantity we received. My only complaint is that the service is at a snails pace. We were here over 3 hours just to have dinner. I understand that Europeans do restaurants different, but this was excessively slow. All in all, I would come back here for some beers any time. I loved that part!

So cool. The old school windmill in a sleepy Dutch town that houses a world class brewery and kitchen. Rasputin on tap is the balls. This place is a bit out of the way, but well worth a visit.

A cosy place to drink some good beers. Although we were informed at the entrance that we might not be able to visit the shop because they were very busy, the service was good. We ate finger food but it was very nice. I shall be back!!!

A very sympathetic place with nice ambiance, everything is wooden, the music is good and not too loud, nice personnel. 10 taps of De Molen beers, lots of available bottles (their bottle shop is basically in the same building), and the food is delicious. Fair prices, I really enjoyed my lunch there! I’m definitely coming back!

Went there during the BBF 2011. Great beerplace. I have no idea of the regular prices and food they serve. Selection in the shop was really nice, prices in the shop were ok. Update: Went there last weekend for the huge Bourbon County tasting. We went there already on friday. Nice draught selection of 10 De Molen beers. Food is decently priced and the taste of it is really amazing. Had the "Ganzenpas". A goose breast filet, hunted down in the local area ’het Groene Hart’. Absolutly great. All bottles from the shop are available to drink on the premises as well. Higly recommended.

16/09/14. Visited on a warm and sunny afternoon. More or less empty at the time, but a really nice and atmospheric place. The lunch selection was pretty bare though can’t complain with the farmer’s lunch. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, nice selection of their own on tap, I think about ten or so, though unfortunately they were out of one CU at the time of the visit. Decent enough prices.

Visited in 2011. They have moved the brewery to another location down the street. Nice place though, cozy, friendly staff and nice selection of beers.

Nice and cozy restaurant inside the old mill, nice big platio aswell. 10 beers on tap when visited saturday, only 7 on sunday. Found it strange that there wasnt put something new on the empty taps, with plenty of kegs siitting in the back. Also found while checking the taps clips, that one beer wasnt annonced on the board. Apart from that the service was good, good english spoken, good recommandations on beers and food. Food was nice, quality of beers was excellent. Possible to have beers from the shop (if you know before hand wich one you want, they will put them in the frigde for you) Overall a very nice place, fairly priced aswell.
