The place was warm and inviting. Fireplace was on and you directly felt at home. We ordered the ‘hutsepot’ and as well stoofvlees with fries. The service was fast and the portions were big. Of course we took the special brothers-in-arms beer, which was very...good. You should definitely try to meet the owner Johan, who has a real passion for WW1 and can tell you great and emotional stories. We had the luck that it wasn’t too busy so he took more than 1 hour to tell us everything and show us his own private museum collection, which is in the attic of the building.More

This cafe is the place of choice for our annual meeting. It is also the headquarters of the Brothers in Arms Memorial charity. A charity that our group supports wholeheartedly. The cafe is superb, one of the best, friendliest pubs you’ll find in Belgium. The...beer is the best, the food even better, The landlord and staff are very friendly and helpful and are brilliant hosts, there is not a bad word I could say about this place. My wife and I visit it as many times as we can and will continue to do so even after the brothers memorial has been completed.More

Johan and others are the driving force behind the brothers in arms project, he will tell you all about it when you are having lunch and if you’re lucky he will show the movies, mind you he also makes a mean coffee and the girls...do a good lunch.More

Recently on a Great war battle fields tour we had lunch at this cafe we met the proprietor who has been digging up relics of the war for years. While doing some road works a few years back five bodies of diggers was found and...some were identified. The cafe owner is trying to raise money to have a memorial built it's called Brothers in arms. At the moment there is just a metal cut out there he intends to replace this with a sculptor. Upstairs in the cafe is a nice museum which show's a short video of finding the bodies well worth a look.More

Great little bar and restaurant near Polygon Wood with heaps of Australiana and war relics. The mural on the outside is amazing. Welcoming staff and a nice place to relax on a sunny day.

What a great find near to Polygon Wood. With great memorabilia of WW1, done with good taste and reverence. Food, drinks and atmosphere were lovely and the upstairs museum room was great. When you go make sure you support the ‘Brothers in Arms’ charity through...a purchase or donation.More

A small bar/tavern right near Polygon Wood. The owner is extremely passionate about military history and has a fantastic collection of memorabilia. He was also responsible for identifying a number of recently found WW1 bodies, dug up when excavating for a pipeline, and as such...has visited the families in Australia. He has a great story to tell. The food is quite good and service is excellent. Currently he (and a small group) is establishing a Brothers in Arms memorial, to remember family brothers killed in the war. The memorial is located opposite the restaurantMore
