I've been there twice so far. Never ordered anything from the menu though. On weekends they have good music and friendly staff. Good place to party when you don't want to be in an overcrowded place.had a lot of fun

The Olld Pal serves nice saté and has friendly service, but as a whole it is an average café. Especially the wines should be better. Still, it is a popular place in Zoetermeer, so you might want to make a reservation.

Beer of the month, fine wines, fresh seasonal products on the menu like mussels and the bar bites offer a wide variety from old cheese to traditional snacks. Food is fresh and good. Fine pub located in the city center. Highly recommended.

Nice bar, both indoor and outdoor seating and looks authentic from the inside. I did not expect such a place in Zoetermeer where everything is fairly new. Enjoyed it and will definitely visit again for drinks with friends!
