They have over 200 beers, each with its matching glass with friendly, at table, service by knowledgeable staff.

We had fun trying to translate the menu and making the right choice. The service was great and their recommendations always on point. The place is lively and very welcoming, do stop by if you get a chance.

Always visit here, how can you go to Bruges and not? Laura and Tom behind the bar are amazing, sorry to the other guys but I don't think I caught your names (despite you knowing mine). And I never knew about the third room at the back. You'll always get a warm welcome here. Worth visiting for Beasty, great guy.

We had a couple of drinks in here and wished we could stay longer. This is not a high brow pub restaurant, this is a sawdust on the floor place to try the full range of Belgian beers (there are literally hundreds of them served here). It gets very busy in there. I was told by some fellow customers that... More

If you like Belgium beer (and who doesn't) this is the place to go. A brilliant old fashioned boozer with the most amazing selection of beers to choose from. Thankfully, the staff will guide you through it. This is well used by locals but tourists are made most welcome. Do not miss this pace!

Quite busy when we arrived, but managed to find a seat quite quickly. Menu was quite confusing, so just randomly selected something ( no real help given), partner had the special brew (we werent impressed think its an acquired taste!) it was ok but we left after that one drink to go to another bar we'd much preferred (Red Rose)

Perhaps it was because it was March but I found the bar relaxed and half full. The very long list of beers is in Dutch so it's best to ask the bar staff for help if you're new to all this. It's small, cosy, covered in beer paraphernalia and the staff are cheerful and relaxed. There's a good restaurant De... More

This is a charming little pub that hasn't been ruined by modernisation or redecoration. The liquid menu has around 150 beers on it so not easy to choose. I struck to the draft beers. It's not open every day so check before visiting, and it's incredibly popular. I went on a Thursday and it had only opened at 4pm. I... More
