Best Pub in Utrecht

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... read more

Nice place for a beer and some local food. Fabulous hot chocolate and really cosy in front of the stove fire place. Tasty and really good value.

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

Tho menu was shorter than average, food itself was tasteful (I had spare ribs), service was fast and warm. Cozy and dim atmosphere.

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

I love when I discover places full of character like this one. It's the pub of an old cinema house. The old cinema pictures hanging on the walls and the old wood furniture contribute to the relaxing atmosphere. We fancied Mediterranean food and we ended up doing our own mezze by ordering half of the finger food menu. Although everything... More

This cinema, bar, small restaurant is one of Utrecht all-time-highs. It offers off-mainstream films, food and drinks in a slightly alternative, cultural atmosphere. Good food and drinks, nice service relaxed atmosphere. Lovely

Had dinner here a week ago. Only just okay, certainly nothing special. The place was packed and the atmosphere was good, a kind of British pub feel. I think it's better for a pint or two, not for the food.
