Its a real pleasure to be guest at the Heer Kocken. Everything is right, great food, carefully prepared, excellent service and fantastic recommendations wrt wine. Usually fully booked, so reservation recommended. Its a little expensive, but worth every euro spend.

Haute cuisine restaurant in Vught. This restaurant you go to when you want to eat really special. Very chique and high class. The price is also equivalent to what they serve.

The Lord Kocken started in 1998 in 's-Hertogenbosch and since 2000 located in a beautiful old pawn in Vught. Our dream has always been that we wanted to open a restaurant where the guest feels comfortable, a relaxed atmosphere and where pure and (h) can honestly eat. In short, flexibility, a friendly atmosphere and hospitality are for us in the first place. That it was awarded a Michelin star in 2008 is of course our great pride. The Lord Kocken works with a small core team, with the extra hands in the kitchen of students and / or interns who want to learn the trade. Precisely because we are a small team work, everyone is attuned so we go together for a successful evening for each guest. We hope soon to welcome you in our restaurant. With warm regards, John Kocken and Kirsty Kocken-Lord Team DHK
