Came here with my wife on recommendation from friends and didn’t regret it. A lovely, cosy, quaint little place. Oldest bar in Bruges apparently. Definitely worth a visit. The staff make you feel welcome and the house dog is brilliant!

We visited this little pub with Yvonne who lives in Bruges. She told us it was the oldest inn in Bruges dating from 1515. You have a great choice of beers and spirits and can eat some simple food.

What a hidden gem this 500 year old café is. Excellent service in a quaint old building, honest simple Belgian food and drink, visited on a very cold December day the Onion soup was to die for!
