Cosy pub with a view

We went in for a mid-afternoon beer, and found this to be a great spot. Good service, and great selection of beer. Nice view of the river from this down to earth pub. We enjoyed a glass of Kwaremont.

I came here with 3 friends as I'd been recommended it by many others. The bar looked great, good beer menu and very busy. However, despite no other customers at the bar we were completely ignored for a good 15 or so minutes. I tried speaking to two staff who both turned on their heels and walked off, wouldn't even...

This well known and famous beer palace has a marvellous selection of beers, the menu listing around 150, plus several on tap. Because of its popularity, it is often very busy and getting a seat inside (or outside in good weather) can be tricky. There is also an upstairs room which is sometimes open too. Staff are welcoming and helpful... More

a must place to go in Ghent if you're looking for a nice place to drink Belgium's beers. Right at the end of a shopping street (we were there on sunday so most shops were closed), so I imagine it probably gets pretty crowded. Even when we were there, we had two drinks inside before getting a patio seat!

With a vast array of beers to chose from this warm and friendly place has been a frequent place to visit on my trips to Gent. Staff are friendly and the location is great, near to the castle and next door to 'T Dreupelkot. Walking distance to one of the Amadeus restaurants' if their food is not to your taste.... More

Great place for a drink. Friendly staff and very, very good beer options. Try the dry hopped house beer, it is very interesting.
