ROTTERDAM, 3 August 2021 - Today, Rotterdam's first English gastropub opens in the middle of the lively Witte de Withstraat. Dutch Dukes invites all Rotterdammers and visitors to the city to experience the relaxed English pub atmosphere at its finest. The pub offers typical English dishes, such as fish & chips and steak & guiness pie, but patrons can also choose appetizers such as avocado fries and bean balls. The dishes are prepared fresh daily, and the drinks menu is filled as a matter of course with British beers, ciders and gin tonics.
Not only the menu and drinks menu, but also the interior has a classic gastropub look. With a burgundy, oak and brass colour palette and stained glass, guests imagine themselves in bustling London.

Casual pub atmosphere

Rotterdam is known for its cultural diversity. With countless culturally diverse restaurants and cafés, you can see, taste and smell that. There is no shortage of choice, but a typical English pub has yet to emerge. That is why Rotterdam hospitality entrepreneur Frank Roolaart (owner of HAL4 aan de Maas) is opening the city's first English gastropub today. "English pubs used to be known as dark, smoky pubs where people hung out at the bar. These old-fashioned pubs have now been elevated to quality gastropubs where friends, colleagues and acquaintances come together. Rotterdam deserves a similar place where people discuss their working day, enjoy fresh dishes and toast to life", says Frank Roolaart.
