Bistro “De Gelagkamer”

In the oldest part of Hotel-Restaurant "De Zwarte Boer" we bid you welcome for a cup of coffee with homemade pastries, a tasty lunch from our lunch menu or a tantalising dinner. "De Gelagkamer" dates from the early years of the 17th century. Enjoy a crackling fire in our beautiful fireplace with original tile tableau of King William the First and his wife Anna Paulowna. During the extensive restoration we found the original floor which was hidden under a wooden layer and carpet. The floor has now been fully restored.

The former kitchen has become part of our bistro. In 2015, we gave this part a makeover. Here we present the wines of our own label on perfect temperature out of the beautiful climate controlled wine fridge. Here you also find the old wooden stove with gorgeous tile tableau. One of the many lost treasures of the 'Old House Leuvenum ".

The old wardrobe and bedstead, date from the time when only the wealthy coachmen could afford an overnight stay. Did you know that the bedstead was not so small because the people were once much shorter ?? They slept half sitting because they feared that the blood would rise to their head.

Fine Dining Restaurant: "De Zwarte Boer"

With only eleven tables the perfect place to dine refined! This very tasteful, classically styled restaurant is ideally suited for an extensive (business) lunch or an evening filled with culinary treats. We work exclusively with fresh products. Be surprised by our Chef and his brigade! We have NO menu. Our chefs are honoured to serve you a 4-course meal. Of course we are very happy to hear about dietary requirements (of those menu-items that you rather not be surprised with)

“De Deel”

This part of "De Zwarte Boer" dates from 1855. A special detail is that “De Deel” is built in 1855 with the bricks that were released during the demolition of the “Oude Huis Leuvenum" (old manor of the Leuvenum estate) in 1854. On the border of our terrace we have realized a beautiful work of art with a lifelike painting of this old manor which was located in the forests behind our hotel.

When you walk over the small bridge (behind the hotel) into the forest, you can still see the old castle moat. The foundation of the castle is still intact. If you close your eyes here you can feel the mystical atmosphere and allure of old times.

"De Deel" is the perfect location for an intimate dinner, wedding, anniversary, reception or business meeting up to 55 people. "De Deel" has its own bar and terrace and features all audio/visual equipment. 

We can partly cover the terrace allowing us to arrange events for groups up to 150 people.

Our Hotel-Restaurant is an official wedding location for the town of Ermelo.
