People who do not speak Dutch are no longer welcome in bars De Tijd and De Kikker in Tiel. The rule applies to everyone, but was implemented due to problems with Polish migrant workers, co-owner Christjan Ernste said to De Gelderlander.
Visitors to the bars have to show their identity card and say 'goedenavond' - good evening in Dutch. If they can't, they can't enter the bars. According to Ernste, foreign people who can speak and understand Dutch are still welcome. "For us this is really about that you can understand each other", he said to the newspaper.
