    East Westphalian feast

    In our restaurant we combine traditional East Westphalian cuisine with a modern touch. For this we have created a special atmosphere in the style of industrial design and thus form another regional bridge to the industries that were once located here. Furniture was once made in our premises as well, where you can now enjoy our East Westphalian cuisine. During the summer months we also extend the restaurant offer to the terrace area.
    Enjoy a piece of East Westphalia with us.
