Cliched Irish bar but a good spot with range of beers and comfortable bar. Service varied - sometimes efficient and frendly, other times non-existent when I think the bar staff were drinking more than thir customers, could not get anyone to serve us. Was told...a draught beer was local specialty and rarely available but saw it every where we went!More

Litterally no service. After reminding to thé waitress that we were missing a plate, we waited for half an hour to finally hear that they had forgotten it again and that the kitchen was closed. The waiter offered à single drink as an excuse and...straight up told us we were taking a piss at him when we simply tried to negociate for more than one drink. Plus the burgers were dry and tasteless, and definitely not worth 15 euros. There are much nicer pubs nearby, don t bother going to this one.More

Really Good Irish Pub in Belgium. Normally I stay away from Irish Pubs when abroad but this is clean, spaceous, beautiful food and access to matches. Perfect for just a bite at lunch nice dinner and they have live music and alcohol with a nice...crowd in the evenings if your into that. Restaurant is greatMore

Our hotel was opposite so we ended the evening here. Great beer, including Stella and Karmeliet and TAYTO crisps. The barmaid was very friendly!

Great location right next to the European Commission. First time I went here the service wasn't really great, but the second time I visited it was good. Might have been visiting on a regualar weekday versus going in the weekend. So I didn't come back...because of the service, but because of the fish and chips. I think it's absolutely amazing. The fish is really tender, the fries are baked twice (I think) and the sauce that comes with the plate is just great. Adding to that, it's nice that they have a 'drinking/watching sports area' and a dining area where you can sit down and talk.More

A lovely venue with lots of charm, spunky lady behind the bar tonight with a wonderful and welcoming smile. Blown away by the really delicious salmon burger and hand cut chips! Salmon was cooked to perfection, everything on the burger complimented the fish and the...chips were crispy and salted just right! I can definitely recommend this!More

Friendliest pub I have ever been to. 2 nights in a row with different staff, so friendly and attending. Haven't been to a pub before where you can have a conversation when it is crowded and when it is still. Its like coming home afar....Really amazing staff!More

We booked a Eurostar Deal that included a hotel in the Schuman district, 3 train stops away from Brussels Centre. Thankfully this pub was a few doors away from our Hotel. A very welcome meeting point, good beer, good food, chatty staff. We found ourselves...meeting here on our way into and out of the Centre. We thought it was a bit pricey; 5Euros a pint and 30Euros for 4 x Burger+Chips. We did enjoy our frequent visits, watching the overpaid coming and going from the EU Commission right opposite!! There is seating outside on the pavement which is great for the smokers. Would definitely go again if we’re in the area.More

Although she appeared busy the barmaid practically threw the menu at me, we would have left but we had been sightseeing all day and were extremely hungry, do not expect a friendly Irish welcome when this woman is serving, just abruptness and attitude. Needless to...say no tip which is something I've never ever had to resorted to before.More
