Culinary devotion in historic Zutphen

Broederenklooster Boutique Hotel & Restaurant

The Broederenklooster is a former monastery and one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in Zutphen. It’s a place to lose yourself in a history stretching back to the 13th century – and with a chef who was once Switzerland’s youngest to earn a Michelin star. Relax in one of the guestrooms in what was once the dormitory, now equipped with every modern comfort. Explore picturesque Zutphen, sip regional beers in the Beer Bar, savour the excellent gin collection in the Gin Bar or head down to the medieval wine cellar for a wine or food tasting.

Classics in surprising combinations

Broederenklooster restaurant

Chef Niels Minkman, together with his namesake Niels van Dooijeweert, is in charge of the kitchen. In Switzerland, Minkman won a Michelin star when he was still very young and after his return to the Netherlands, he caused a sensation with his restaurant Het Oude Gemeentehuis. The menu features classics in surprising and innovative combinations, such as tuna, crab and oyster and goose liver with cherries, or sweetbreads with green asparagus, or skate wing with beurre noisette. With chef Niels Minkman you can sample the finest produce from the region and far beyond. He cooks in an open kitchen surrounded by his guests.
