Huisje James - a real experience

The former residents of the house, the James family, were passionate about vintage cars. The man of the house used to restore his vintage cars in an old barn. This space has since been renovated into De Werkplaats – the Workshop – and is part of the Huisje James experience. You start the evening at the Werkplaats with an aperitif and amuse-bouche. You then move on to your table at Huisje James, where a dinner for real gourmets awaits you. You end the evening with a digestif and/or coffee by the fireplace of the Werkplaats.
