I write my review as I sit at the tables outside, so bewildered to how I was just treated by a fellow Irish person. We visited Hoopman Irish pub on the day of our arrival. We had a lovely brunch with fantastic service before heading off on our merry way sight seeing. After a late night site seeing and a... More

Ordered 2 drinks, Guinness and Amstel, 13.60 for the drinks. The Amstel was about a inch down, I politely asked the bar maid would she just put a head on the lager, she rudely point blank refused, she snapped and told me "that's how drinks are served here" won't be going back.

Had 2 cider drinks, a 350 ml guiness draft, fish and chips very small, a hoegaarden, 42 euro. Exaggerated. Women forgot to bring a fork. Slow service.

We came in here fairly late, there weren't many other people in and we were still left waiting ages. The staff went to other tables to take orders so we assumed this was normal and patiently waited. It was only after some time that I got up to go to the bar myself and then one of them actually spoke... More

I usually have a few beers and croquettes here before dinner. The location is right at the vibrant Leidseplein and it can get quite busy at times. The selection of beers is good and definately not miss out on the shrimp croquettes, they are one of the best in town! The service is good too although being served in English... More

Our first visit to this pub was great, we had a lovely barman serving us, chatty, witty and helped with the lovely atmosphere on a hot Saturday afternoon. Good choice, let's go ahead on the Sunday night. Awful, the barman was a wide boy, rude and not worth the hassle. Funny how different the experiences were, but it was a... More

Great European terrace and views of people walking by. The menu is ok but not very extensive. Prices are not cheap but you are in Amsterdam!! The service was very slow and not the most dynamic waiter... Other staff seem better

Thank zero63

Finding an Irish pub in the centre of Amsterdam as true as Hoopman is a difficult task. Hoopman offers a broad selection of Irish whiskeys, stouts and draughts. As well as Irish drinks, Hoopman offers a great selection of pub grub. Above all our Irish staff will always give you a feeling like you are at home. Hoopman is situated on Het Leidseplein in the bustling centre of Amsterdam where you will find that Hoopman serves as a warm and cosy haven from the busy streets. In the winter you can take shelter for a warm drink inside and in the summer you can refresh yourself with a cool drink on our terrace. Hoopman organizes a ton of events over the year. We always show all main sport events on our screen, from the 6 nations' rugby to the Champions league's soccer. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated every year with a big party where we have Irish dancers to perform traditional dances throughout the evening. Hoopman is always decorated for special days, on Halloween everything is covered in webs and for Christmas we are covered in lights and surrounded by Christmas trees. Hoopman is sure to give you a good feeling: whether you are Irish or not, our staff will certainly give you a warm Irish welcome to Amsterdam!
