The arsenal in the centre of Woerden is a listed building dating from 1762. Carefully restored and sustainably renovated, it has been transformed into Van Rossum café and restaurant and Stadshotel Woerden. This boutique hotel in Holland’s rural Groene Hart area, within easy reach of the major cities, has spacious rooms in individual style, with atmospheric oak beams and comfortable Auping beds. The cafe terrace and restaurant are on a lively square, Kerkplein. Van Rossum knows how to make its guests immediately feel welcome.
The big open kitchen headed by chef Dennis Scheepmaker produces delicious dishes using pure, honest-to-goodness local ingredients, with meat and vegetables from Van Rossum’s own nearby ecological farm!
You can also feel the warmth of Van Rossum’s hospitality in the luxury meeting room, with its large table and cosy open fire.
Van Rossum offers a welcoming spot for any occasion and time of day, and undivided attention to every guest.
The Van Rossum Bar & Restaurant is ‘the place to be’ according to Van Rossum himself. Woerden has strong ties with the surrounding polder lands, which is reflected in the restaurant’s cuisine. Chef Dwight Scholtens’ menu offers many local dishes always using the very best local and seasonal produce. The Big Green Egg offers superior grilled dishes. Combined with the relaxed atmosphere this lends to a memorable dining experience.
The friendly bar is part of the restaurant.
The restaurant is opened daily.
Van Rossum’s Paradise is a lovely garden area featuring a large table and chairs to relax and unwind. If you’re lonely, the hens wandering around in the garden will keep you company.
Weather permitting, you can enjoy your dinner or cup of coffee on the hotel’s terrace while watching the hustle and bustle on the Church Square.
Woerden is a pleasant town situated on the east of Holland’s Green Heart region. Many towns and cities are well within reach, such as the city of Utrecht.
