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.

We had a business dinner here and it was really great. Very warm welcome from all the staff, very good service, very friendly and most of all terrific food and wines. This place is really outstanding. I would come here again when in the neighbourhood.

It really deserves one Michelin star. Very nice place with an old elegance atmosphere, friendly service and truly excellent food. We were hesitant to order the oysters prepared three ways as we always stick to the rule that they are best eaten natural, but boy ! how wrong we have been after trying these ! Bloody Mary granita, sweet and... More

the menu card is surprising and the ingredients are fresh and well prepared; the plates are very well prepared and you can feel that the cook loves his job by the way the food is presented; the quality is high; the restaurant is cosy and comfortable; a very nice address in a very small village; Bravo!

We did not bother to look at the menu. Just asked for fish. It was amazing. The wines were perfectly chosen. Loved all the sweets with the coffee

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.

If you are on a budget, turn around and walk away. If you want to experience some truly spectacular food tastes, make a reservation and come here. The kitchen is open and visible from many tables. The preparations are carried out in haste but with a efficient and professional manner. The foods are assembled and created to bring out unusual... More

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
