'De Zwaan' is a pub located in a building that dates from 1772. The snacks are tasty and accompanied with a pint of beer and the sun on your face, it doesn't get much better...

Went here for the first time this year upon the recommendation from a local. The food did not disappoint. They use local products, which makes the meals extra special.

Just popped in here for drinks after hiking for a morning across the heath, The staff didnt mind us showing up with muddy boots and hair sticking out at all angles. We were served quick and efficiently and were made to feel welcome.

We visited the place after a long cycling trip from Nes. Due to the windchill factor it felt like it was freezing. The place and staff gave us a very warm feeling when we entered to recover from the cold. We had a very good coffee and apple pie in a perfect atmosphere.
