Brilliant Bar

We visited the bar before dinner and i was very impressed. The choice of beers was matched only by the knowledgeable staff. It felt as if each staff member knew everything there was to know about every beer. The atmosphere was very relaxed and when we were in there it was busy but not... read more

Brugs Beertje has an extensive beer menu, though the menu itself is illogically indexed and though once renowned for its service, those days have gone. There are far better choices. Food is available but the place is so cramped I couldn't imagine eating there.

Hello, thanks for your visit and review. Sorry to hear you are not completely happy with our bar/service. When too much people are inside i understand it can be a bit cramped and that's why we don't really allow drinking while standing, but on very busy days it is really difficult to explain that to people because then they feel...

We passed by around lunchtime and noticed that the bar didn't open until 4pm. Came back at 4.15pm and could barely get a seat! It looked very small when we entered but there are two other areas through the back so plenty of space for everyone. The tables are very close together but that allows you to chat to the... More

Quirky pub with unique 'Grandma's living room' feel to it. Beer menu is huge,but difficult to navigate if you don't speak Belgian. Prices are in keeping with other bars in Bruges.Staff were pleasant enough by Bruges standard (i.e. anything less than actively rude is a treat!) This place is definitely worth a visit-be careful of the 12% beers!

The premiere location for beer livers, with an unrivalled selection. The pub also offers decent bar food to compliment the main attraction. Be warned however - this is one of the most popular bars in Brugge and has a tendency to fill up very quickly.

A really good place to visit as it decor reflects a typical Belgium bar. Some may call it a bit shabby but I call it authentic It has a good range of beers and serves snacks and always seems busy so it must be popular with both the locals and the tourists. A really good atmosphere pervades the rooms front... More

Relatively unchanging beer list which does not seem to put the beer tourists off. Still, if you haven't been there, it is great, characterful & when not busy, friendly.
