I vistited on a cloudy day, unfortunately, still the mill gives a good sight, and the warm summer weather allowed me to enjoy some time on the terrace. The food is decent, trying to impress, but a bit pretentious; the service has been friendly; the tap list is varied, but some of the beers on the list were not really great; I wonder if the short bottle menu is just a hint, and they allow to drink any bottle from the shop, if not, you would expect more from De Molen.
But it’s a very nice place.

I visited the bottle shop during Borefts 2012. The shop’s small, but manages to cram a few hundred bottles into the space. The selection of De Molen beers is unsuprisingly large and impressive. There’s also a decent amount of rare stuff from the US, Scandanavia, and the UK. I was suprised that a few brewers present at the fest weren’t available in the shop. The prices can be a bit high (especially for the De Molen beers, which are cheaper at other shops in the Netherlands), but some of the US stuff was actually pretty good value. Overall, you should definitely have a look if you’re in Bodegraven.

The building needs work, though it too has great potential. The bottle shop is mind-boggling in its quality and rare selections. Would have wished for a couple more beers on tap in the restaurant. Anyhow, it is one of the best places to go in the country.

rlgk  (613) Göteborg, Sweden | June 29, 2013
Visited during RBESG 2013. We had a few beers and then was served dinner in our own room on second floor. Went back after Grand Tasting and had a few more beers in the outdoor-section. 7-8 De Molen-beers on tap, never asked for any bottles. Very nice place, relaxed and rather pleasant also when it was crowded late in the evening.

Visited several times. Very cosy place, very nice way to use an old mill, placed next to one of many canals in Netherlands ;-). Easy to find and parking close by. They do beers both on tap and in bottles, served in good condition. Great food as well, is a must visit place if in Netherland.

The bar/restaurant is pretty good. The shop is awesome but the prices are on the high side but there are beers here from the best brewers in the world (some very hard to get hold of). Menno’s beers are a must try! There are no bad beers in this shop!

Camons  (494) Hasselager, Denmark | August 8, 2014| Updated October 11, 2014
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.

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.

JStax  (464) Devola/Marietta, Ohio | May 30, 2015
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!
