Nice pleasant atmosphere

We had a beer twice in Springhaver in our most recent visit to Utrecht as it has such a nice atmosphere and there is a chance of an outside seat in the sun on the pedestrianised street. We always choose Springhaver or Ledeig Erf for a beer. Beers are not cheap though – 4 Euros for a La Chouffe... read more

Place where alternative people and students gather to hang out and enjoy good food and drinks. It's always busy. Plus you can go and enjoy a movie after drinks and/or dinner.

with my family, we have been impressed by the authentic and very pleasant atmosphere of this cozy but comfortable pub. 8 beers on tap which you can taste before ordering the usually large serving. The service was friendly and relative fast considering you are in The Netherlands. The food was not spectacular but absolutely rewarding for the value. The options... More

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

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.
