I don't remember much, which means it did the job.

As per the title. So many beers to cheers from, friendly locals (including Rick and his Liverpool socks).

So many beers, so little time! Perfect pub for trying different belgium beers. Cheese plate was a nice sampling. Service was not fast but very friendly. It was a busy place.

This is a nice little bar with an OK atmosphere. Not the best bar in the Brugge by far, but prices are very reasonable. I would avoid eating at all costs! We ordered 2 croquet monsieur's and were by no means expecting fine dining, however what came was pretty dismal. As a vegetarian they said they could make mine without... More

No trip to Bruges is complete without visiting this award winning bar, owned and run by Daisey Claeys who makes welcome her advice on the many beers on offer including 5 barrel beers, here we drank Lupulus and very nice too. This bar does get busy and check the opening times as they don't open until 4.00 in the afternoon,... More

The Little Bear is one of the two best Cafes for beer in Bruges, and a must visit if you are looking for quality and variety in Belgium beer, indeed some beers are brewed exclusively for this bar. The menu can seem overwhelming, but I would encourage you not to fall back on the well known brands: the staff are... More

This is a classic old style pub with an incredible drinks menu. Up there with Staminee de Garre and Café Rose Red as must visits on any trip to Bruges, especially if you like your beer. You can always find something in here that you probable can't get anywhere else and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations.

This place had an amazing beer list, was very quaint, and seemed a spot for locals and well as tourists. Would have been 5 stars if it had Wifi and took credit cards, but some people might rate it higher for that reason! We had some delicious beers, a wonderful cheese plate, and enjoyed our visit a lot.

Their beer menu is a binder and can be hard to decipher for the novice (us) but the staff were helpful in recommending beers based on what we wanted to try. A quaint, pub-like atmosphere that seemed to have a mix of locals and tourists.

Had a few drinks here as part of a lads holiday and they found us tables, table service from the extensive beer menu, and reasonably priced for Bruges.
