You have to visit this unique hotel-restaurant that is only two minutes walk away from the centre of the city! Since I haven't been a guest of the hotel I will write here only a review of the visited by us restaurant/inn. As we have been told that the Pilgrim-Haus stands for more than 700 years of gastronomy in the heart of the old Hanseatic city of Soest in its original old beautiful house with untouched character and atmosphere - it was opened as an inn/guesthouse in the distant 1304 year! It's really amazing to dine in such a restaurant/inn between meter-thick stone walls and furnishings that have been accumulated over generations! But it's not just the interior and the atmosphere that makes this restaurant so special. Their food is tasty and you can see it because not only tourists but also many local people visit it - the venue offers not a very long menu consisting of traditional dishes from the regional Westphalian cuisine as well as international dishes - mostly salads, meat and fish plus a nice wine list and several German draught and bottled beers. I would recommend you to try the fillet of pork as a main dish and the local pumpernickel dessert! The original pumpernickel is a traditional Westphalian whole-grain bread made from rye flour and coarse rye meal with specific preparation that allows its ingredients to caramelize, giving the bread its dark brown color and its lightly sweet aroma and taste. The dessert I had was with ice-cream and cherries and was incredibly delicious! The staff is extremely kind(they have also an English menu, you just have to ask for it), the prices are about average or slighly higher than average, you can pay in cash or by credit card. The restaurant is open everyday from 12:00 till 14:00 and from 17:30 till 22:30.
Favorite Dish: We had the fillet of pork and it was delicious! The local pumpernickel icecream is a must eat dessert (price of EUR 6.20), try also the draught Veltins Pils and the Pilgrim-haus Dunkel/Dark beers!
