Have been along to Springhaver pub on a number of occasions, and the straightforward friendly service in this quirky old pub is amazing. The food served here is excellent also, especially the Belgian Carbonade of beef, which melts in your mouth, There is a simple but good menu with daily specials. I had always wondered where people disappeared to at... More

In existence for 130 years this is the oldest pub in Utrecht. Informal atmosphere, large selection of international beers. Like in an English pub you order at the bar, the difference being that they run a tab for you and you pay when you leave. The food in Springhaver is simple but good value for your money. The staff is... More

I come here with my husband and friends once a month or so. The front room is always too noisy for us and rarely has space, but there is usually a table free in the back room. The menu changes regularly and there is always a nice choice for vegetarians and even vegans now (with some adjustment at least). The... More

They have a cat that wanders around in the restaurant! "Tosti" is only nice for those who like an extra layer of melted cheese on top, but I found it quite greasy.

Have popped in here a few times for drinks and snacks. Friendly staff, and a good menu. Sitting outside on a sunny autumn afternoon was a very pleasant experience. A great place to watch the world go by from. Inside great atmosphere too. Well worth a visit.

We went there for lunch, we asked the "something of everithing" menu, a beer and some starters. We waited for almoust an hour to have the last dish. Everything is good, nice place and cheap (17€ each/one), but too much time to wait
