Worth the visit

Nice decoration, friendly staff. Beers were ok. Not something special, but better than most of draft beers we've tried. Would go again

Lovely bar with good own beer. Stoombier is an amber ale like lager, the others mostly IPA's and stronger beers. Not cheap at €6pint. Food snacks and main meals. We had mixed plate which was a selection deep fried bites at €13.50. Lovely area around canals

70% occupied;including terrace, 3 men personnel. As I sat in view of the counter, I expected fast attendance, but after myself another couple walked in and 4 on another table and they started taking order by last one to enter... so I was the last to be asked what I would like to drink by chance, as he passed my...

Beer is local and good. Place is nice in the old city. But food is average and food service is sooo slow. There were very few people but we wait 1h our dishes and they arrived in random order. We have to ask numerous times to have bread and it arrives after we finished our dishes... Service is friendly but... More

Ate hear on a quiet Sunday evening. Very pleasant waitress with excellent English. Chose a 300g steak and it was the most tender and perfectly cooked that I think I can ever remember. Whole meal a very enjoyable experience.

Right next door to the Pilgrim Father Church is the city brewery Pilgrim. Nice atmosphere, good beer and yummy Bitterballen (savory fried dough balls). Great for a late afternoon break from touring Rotterdam!

A marvelous stop on a walk around Delfthaven. Nice food, (great soup) and of course the famour Pilgrim Beer, which is exceptional in all of the incarnations. The pub is certainly atmospheric, and the resident cat checks you out to see if you are up to standard. Delfthaven is really an interesting diversion to the modernity of Rotterdam, and well... More

Called in here for a couple of drinks and a bite to eat with some friends. The staff were very friendly and together with some visiting Norwegians we were given a quick tour round the brewery. We loved the fact that like the UK microbreweries like this are thriving. Long may it continue. Loved the beer and loved the food.... More
