We popped in for a beer on the roof terrace as we saw there was 200-beer selection, according to a sign near the door. However, the beer I ordered was out of stock (though this wasn't marked on the menu) - they asked me for...More

Had a beer here Kwak, pleasant enough but only discovered after I'd left that the barman had slipped me a paper £5 note so now I have to go to a bank and change it for real money. Pain

I had a great night trying a few of the many Belgian beers they have. I even found a new favourite. La Choeff. I tried a few too many but it was worth it!

Great experience. This establishment specialises in Belgian beers, and has > 100 on the menu, although not all of them always available. You can, therefore, visit several times without running out of ideas. All styles are represented, with a particularly strong fruit section. There are...More

The service has always been somewhat dubious here, but recently it seems to have got much worse. During one visit they hardly had any of the beers in their menu in stock, and about half of the tap beers also weren't available. Given that the...More
