For anyone seeking beer variety this is the place to be. A fantastic selection of beers with service second to none in a cosy, welcoming atmosphere. This place does get busy so get there early or be prepared to wait for a table.

this one is a must for beer lovers. be prepared to be totally lost on the beer menu. very few nibbles available - but these are even more yummy. After the third beer I switched to a beer theme and drank only beers with a female relation... like Dikke Mathilda, Femme Fatale.... any other theme works also well. there is... More

This was a nice little bar with a nice selection of beer. The service was top notch and very friendly. It's mainly a bar however it has a small selection of snacks and finger foods. Highly recommend.

We wandered in and it looked quite cozy and fun. I asked if they had a gluten free beer and they had 2 to choose from! wow- first for everything! Prices are very reasonable and service was great. When you first look in it can be deceptive as it goes further back into two more rooms. We had some snacks... More

Had a nice afternoon in here and a slightly less nice evening due to a bunch of loud Americans and Canadians who couldn't take the strength of the beer. Lots of seating in 3 rooms, amazing choice of ale and friendly staff to advise. Definitely worth a visit but maybe bring your earplugs ...

Hi thanks for your visit and review . Sorry , the evening wasn't quite as nice as the afternoon due to the noise. We really try to keep the noise down ( we only play classical music, no shouting or singing allowed in the bar , ....) and we tell people to be more quiet if they are too loud... More

We happened to enter here by accident while strolling the inner lanes.. this place is a must do for beer enthusiasts.. there are over 300 beers..if you are confused, the staff is extremely friendly. would recommend this place than visiting beer museum.. it is worth spending evening here and trying out different beers.
