First thing that comes to mind when you walk through the door is amazement at how big the place really is. Long and heavily done up in hard wood style conveying a sense of being in a ship. Next you start expecting Jack Sparrow to come by. Dark interiors but cosy. The place started to get alive by 1:00am when we walked in. The kitchen closes then so could not sample any of it. But beer from Germany, holland, chile, Peru, Mexico, USA, Ireland and Argentina can be had. Stouts on offer were noteworthy. Attentive service, not too expensive and located in a busy street with other food and pub options make Van a good option for a night out with buddies. Unlike other similar places there were no annoying pseudo art types with their trademark chatter which is a big plus considering there isn't much space between tables. Highly recommended.
