This was a great little place to visit. definitely a novelty being a windmill Pub. You can get a paddle taster of 5-6 beers for 10 euro. They don’t open til 2:00pm, so make sure you don’t go too early. Service staff weren’t particularly friendly...More

Can't go wrong drinking good beer and eating Bitterballen beside an old wooden windmill. Tried a couple of their house made beers and both were tasty.

First of all, it's a windmill, so it's already cool. Get the cheese and sausage plate and try their house-made beers. YUM.

Wife and I visited for a few drinks and loved everything we tried! Food options are limited but the sausages were surprisingly good.

And well, no it's not self-service! Read my review. it's the guy serving the beer who was impolite and aggressed me. The question is for the brewery owners/management

Yes its a great place to visit for a beer, you can sit outside, open from 2pm until 8pm, the windmill is picturesque and its also near the single canal and the zoo.
