This is a very social neighborhood pub. One night it had an accordion player and was SRO with locals having a group sing. Another night just locals in for a social outing with friends. Authentic neighborhood pub for sure!

Stopped in for a mid afternoon beer - ending up staying for a couple. Quant old pub with cold beer and a neat atmosphere.

The stuff is very unfriendly not to say rude. Place is dirty. You need to pay to use the toilet - I do not recommend.

Place looks nice enough but I wandered about on the bar for five minutes trying to figure out what was the queue and what was just the barman's mates there for a chat. Got carved up twice by said mates without so much as an 'are you waiting' or even eye contact. That was enough hospitality for me. Bye.

We were taken to the Cafe Brandon by a local friend, whilst visiting the nearby Anne Franks House.

This is simply a fantastic, yet simple bar, that is a delight to visit.

They serve red or white wine, spirits and beers. No food is on offer, but next door is a wonderful pizza takeaway. Cafe Brandon were happy for us to bring the pizzas in and eat at their table.

The staff, like the bar are quirky, but don’t let that put you off. After a few drinks they chat away and tell you about the history of the bar, (which is worth knowing).

This is a must to visit, but don’t expect to get served if you are on a hen, or stag do. This establishment is for locals (and respectful) visitors.

A must visit
