Beautiful decor and selection of Belgian beers in a central location.

Welcoming bar serving a range of Belgian beers although the one my husband was looking forward to trying was not available. They do serve food but with a limited menu, so may not be good if you are a fussy eater. A relaxed atmosphere and on a lovely summers day there is an outside (secret) beer... read more

Friendly bar, in a stunning building. The decoration, especially the ceiling, is a wonderful recollection of what the place used to be. A good selection of wine by the glass, and at decent prices.

The first thing to do when entering the doors of Cafe Bruxelles is to look up. I guarantee your jaw will drop at the astonishing sight you see. Once you've recovered from the stunning decor prepare to be equally overwhelmed by the food and drink. The Belgium beer range is stunning, with a taste (and strength) for every palate -... More

Stunningly renovated and decorated former bank serving excellent Belgian trappist ales and some very tasty well produced food. Take plenty of time to enjoy the beer and see how many Tintins youcan find!!

We took our daughter and her boyfriend for a celebratory graduation dinner. We've been before and once again the food, service and venue were excellent. The sirloin steak was the best I've had so far this year. The bacon, Stilton and port sauce on the mussels was superb. We cannot recommend Cafe Bruxelles enough. Well worth the 130 mile round...

Had a drink here yesterday whilst shopping and sat out the front and the sun was banging. Polite staff and nice decor. On way to the toilets I saw there was a downstairs bar with leather sofas and to my surprise a beer garden. I will defiantly be going back to explore further 😀

Hi after walking around the city we couldnt make our mind up. So my husband suggested we went to cafe Bruxcells for mussels and chips. Arrived barman took our order quick. Was then surprised it took so long to cook. I was watching the chef and did wonder why he was stirring the mussels so long in the pan. When... More

Had the best battered fish and chips in a long time. My husband loved the bread and butter pudding "just like his grannie made". Wonderful serving staff. Amoretti Sour made by Mitch is now my favourite cocktail.
