De Poort is a lively pub located on the Old Canal, offering a large choice of beer. Generally crowded and lively, so recommended to sample the beers and short eats. Friendly and busy staff.

This is a really nice place in Utrecht for having Friday midday drinks. We started with drinks, ordered some food later on and ended with playing games. They probably collected different games through the years, as they have lots of them! Really cool to just...More
