Fantastic bar with wonderful ambiance and beer selection. We sat up on the second level for a great view of the bar below. On a lovely little side street. Highly recommend!

Terrific little pub. Friendly, well-stocked, great choice. Hidden away so you'll need to scour your map.

Really liked this place, just around the corner from our hotel. Knowledgeable bar staff, plenty of choice of fine ales and not too badly priced, Visited quite a few times.

Great beers, great place. Try the Gollem Blond. Just looked at the cheese platter but was tempted to order one just for myself!

I have been here 3 or 4 times, but was surprised when it was closed down for some town. Later I read in the local and national newspapers why that was. It re-opened late 2013.
When I first got there with 2 friends, small and cosy pub with beer specialities. O.K. they were over-priced, about 20% more expensive than other pubs close by selling the same special beers on a better location with a view on the squares, canals and streets, putting that aside it has its charm as a small pub.
The surrealistic afternoon I spent there with an American friend was us entering Gollem and everyone, literally everyone, in Gollem was drinking Pauwel Kwaks using the wooden stands the laboratory glasses are put in. that was so awkward, and funny. The pub has a nice atmosphere, but can be way too crowded, and if you want to use the lavatory then it is a) difficult and b) unpleasant for the people sitting close to the lavatory door, they constantly have to stand up and move their chairs. Unfortunately it is charging way too much,
