Great craft beer and home brew!

Placed slap bang in the centre of Middelburg this pub has a real old sailors feel to it. The food is good and reasonably priced (I had the rump of beef) and I would highly recommend trying the home brew ale - light, sweet and rather tasty! (5% - so not "blow your head off" home brew!) It's like... read more

Locals recommended me to visit the Mug and order spareribs. So first a local brewed beer together with spareribs. Wonderful combination. Staff is friendly, not rushed but not long waiting either. Spareribs come with a bowl to wash your fingers. Good salad and fries as well. One rack and some pieces, more than enough for a hungry (wo)man. Altogether less... More

Three to five times a year, we visit family and friends; a meal and a drink at “The Mosquito” are each time a must. Nice friendly service, very respectable choice of wines and beers, tasty and well prepared meals and most of the time decent people to have really interesting conversations. An insider tip: Try their “notenwijn”. It is the... More

Lovely atmosphere, a great beer selection and food that looked and smelt great. We didn't eat, but I think we will the next time we're there.

Lovely bar, a Dutch classic interior. It used to be a famous beer destination, but the beer list send to be the same one I was choosing from in 1992. The beer world has changed, but whoever is failing to keep up with the times is seriously damaging the reputation. Not even beer from local breweries let alone the new... More

We had a very nice dinner in this friendly and "vintage" restaurant. Dishes are good and full of taste, prices are low and service really kind. We'll surely come back again. I can recommend their own brewered beer. Thanks !

I was surprised, it's a sports bar and restaurant and bar in one. The food was surprisingly tasty and the guy behind the bar even organised something for the kids. There was great live music in the same street, we had a great dinner outside, people were having a good time.

Friendly, good English spoken - well, it is in The Netherlands! Great beer, music, wine, food, prices. Mixed clientele, interesting posters and other artefacts - if this place were at home it would be our local!

Warm welcome, good atmosphere, friendly staff and good food! A good place to visit when you are in Middelburg! Also a good place for just a couple of drinks, in the summertime you can sit outside.

Have been to Middelburg many times to visit friends and family and make sure to dine here almost every time! Wonderful place, very relaxed atmosphere. Family friendly. Great food and a varied menu. However on our last visit there was no 'famous spare ribs' !!!! Which was very disappointing. Always a good night with good service. But often very busy... More
