HERTOG JAN - A new kind of simple restaurant

"At the end of 2010 Joachim and Gert took the next step in the execution of their philosophy by buying their own farm in Zedelgem, close to the city of Bruges. This allowed them to grow a wide variety of vegetables, fruits and flowers for use in many of Chef Gert De Mangeleer’s signature dishes. The long-term vision was to transfer the entire restaurant to the same location and integrate it with the historical farm and its surroundings. The garden, which can be experienced while dining, is the departure point for the guests’ journey of discovery and changes, like the dishes, with the seasons. The new location was opened in July 2014, our photo album displays part of the evolution of the last four years.

The 180-year-old barn has been completely renovated and refurbished to host the beating heart of the new Hertog Jan – the kitchen. The new addition hosts the actual restaurant with a view over the surrounding garden and landscape. The full concept was created by the office of Architect Dries Bonamie."
