The story of Vessel 11 began in 1951, when the lightship was built in Dartmouth, UK, and commissioned as a mobile lighthouse on the south coast of Wales. After an impressive history of restoration and repurposing, it was renamed Vessel 11 in May 2014 and became the first gastro pub in the Netherlands.

On board Vessel 11 you can enjoy a menu inspired by British cuisine, with a seasonal and modern twist. Our goal is to emphasize the homely feel of this cuisine and use as many local and sustainable products as possible.

Nice little lunch spot on the canals. The food was okay, decent craftsmanship but nothing exceptional. The surrounding are amazing, and it’s a nice little spot when the weather is nice as there is plenty of outdoor space. The service was nothing special, the waitress mainly looked like someone who didn’t want to be there in the first place.

Nice place for a great evening dinner with friends. Ample options available for vegetarians and vegans on the menu, although please ask beforehand for availability if going there late. Tried nachos and vegetarian beetroot burger, quite nice and tasty. Variety of seating areas, on deck, inside and on top. Service is great, polite and helpful.

Best pub in Rotterdam! Dropped in to have a pint and the vibe was perfect. The bartenders were welcoming and made me feel like a regular. Between the history of Vessel 11 and a music venue downstairs, you can’t go wrong!
