Been here last week during the weekend for a bite to eat. When you enter the place it feels warm and very hospitable. They have many many different beers and a very nice food. The friendly staff makes it complete. We can recommend this restaurant/bar!

Friendly, lively bar worth a visit. Good variety of beer and a great atmosphere. Have also eaten there and the food was tasty but not cheap.

Prizewinning pub with great beers and typical Dutch 'brown pub atmosphere'. The place to step in from the rain and have a beer and a laugh. Food is also available, but it is not the restaurant that stands out, although good food, it is the bar.

I'm very fortunate to have an excellent travelling companion who always carries out extensive research before we go anywhere together. She had come upon this lovely bar/restaurant and it definitely lived up to its reputation of serving top notch food. The waitress was charming and patiently translated the menu into English for us. I had a delicious quiche washed down... More

Locals recommended me to visit the Mug and order spareribs. So first a local brewed beer together with spareribs. Wonderful combination. Staff is friendly, not rushed but not long waiting either. Spareribs come with a bowl to wash your fingers. Good salad and fries as well. One rack and some pieces, more than enough for a hungry (wo)man. Altogether less... More

Three to five times a year, we visit family and friends; a meal and a drink at “The Mosquito” are each time a must. Nice friendly service, very respectable choice of wines and beers, tasty and well prepared meals and most of the time decent people to have really interesting conversations. An insider tip: Try their “notenwijn”. It is the... More

Placed slap bang in the centre of Middelburg this pub has a real old sailors feel to it. The food is good and reasonably priced (I had the rump of beef) and I would highly recommend trying the home brew ale - light, sweet and rather tasty! (5% - so not "blow your head off" home brew!) It's like stepping... More

Lovely atmosphere, a great beer selection and food that looked and smelt great. We didn't eat, but I think we will the next time we're there.

Lovely bar, a Dutch classic interior. It used to be a famous beer destination, but the beer list send to be the same one I was choosing from in 1992. The beer world has changed, but whoever is failing to keep up with the times is seriously damaging the reputation. Not even beer from local breweries let alone the new... More

We had a very nice dinner in this friendly and "vintage" restaurant. Dishes are good and full of taste, prices are low and service really kind. We'll surely come back again. I can recommend their own brewered beer. Thanks !
