Restaurant ‘t Sparrebos

Restaurant ‘t Sparrebos was originally the Struye – Six family farm on the edge of the Helleketelbos between Poperinge, Watou and Abele. When the Helleketelbos opened in ’74, the family started selling beers from the garage.

Over the years, ’t Sparrebos grew to become a thriving family hospitality business in the countryside, where you can enjoy anything from a snack to a full culinary experience.

‘t Sparrebos is located in a beautiful historic rural environment with many walking opportunities. Here in Flanders Fields, you are a stone’s throw from numerous war monuments. Poperinge is also known for its beer and hops.

You will be warmly welcomed at ’t Sparrebos even just for refreshments – two terraces offer the perfect spot to have a relaxing time with friends or family. We are also happy to cater for your parties or meetings.

Looking forward to seeing you in ‘t Sparrebos!
