Besides the many beers on tap (16) there are roughly 130 bottled beers and a wide range of wines, gins about 150 whiskies. But this is also a place for a good cup of coffee. Grandma (84 years old) has been making the apple pie here for countless years. From April to October the large 80-seat terrace is open.
Throughout the year, several events and tastings are organised so there is always something to do. In 2013 we won business of the year and in again 2014 we came second in the national top 100 best pubs in the Netherlands. The Bonte Koe pub is also a member of De Alliantie van Biertapperijen (The Alliance of Beer Taverns). To sum up, a great, cosy pub!!
