Discover the Burgundy enjoyment

It is Gust van Dijk’s recommendation to go to “In Den Bockenreyder” to taste the atmosphere of the pleasant Brabant life and secretly dream that you could have been a Robin Hood-like rascal or an exciting farmer’s daughter with arms full of pitchers of beer. While you read the menu of Brabant delicacies, a delicious glass of abbey beer will be tapped for you. Look at all those cheerful faces around you and think: “What a place to be! This is Burgundy’s enjoyment!”

Robin Hood like outlaws

Who were the Bockenreijders? According to tradition, the Bockenreijders were a gang of robbers who in 1730-1765 made the Dutch South Limburg, Belgian Voerstreek, the areas just across the German border and the Kempen unsafe. The raids were generally directed against farms and parsonages. Later, through all kinds of stories and mysticism, the Bockenreijders got a “Robin Hood-like status”.

The menu is written in local dialect
