Description: In this interior, that seems to be a copy of an authentic pub of the years 1930 with a typical tiled floor and "lampes belges", you may expect no-nonsense Belgian plain fare with a beer twist. To evolue the right atmosphere you can drink your beer at the into tables transformed yeast presses, seated on half barrels converted into chairs. You'll almost have to make a study to choose your beer out of the 25 draught beers and more than 300 bottled beers! There fore they present a beer encyclopedia with pictures and clarifications. On friday there is a beer sommelier to answer all your questions.

This is the first time I have been to a restaurant with a beer menu the size of a phone book. It had over 300 on offer and they all were explained along with an incite into beer production in general. We had pub grub of burger and chips which was good value and sat outside people watching with a few brews. Good water hole within a stones throw from the main railway station on a large pedestrian shopping street. Rest and drink, while she goes shopping.

Lets discuss the elephant in the room: horrific service. This is not your typical bad European service, this takes it to a new level. With our food she did not bring silverware. When we got her attention and notified her, she brought one set for 3 people. By the time we flagged her down again and got the rest of the cutlery the food was cold. And then she didn't come back to our table. Ever. With so many beers on tap, if she had been attentive we'd have ordered at least 2-3 more rounds.

As for the good every beer we had perfectly fit a palette at our table. And our cheese croquettes were very good. I wish I had a server who was more willing to help me spend money on beer I wanted to drink

I stopped drinking beer in the uk because it's rubbish. But I had to have a few at this place. You have a book to choose from, obviously get the ones on tap, bottle beers you can buy anywhere. Great place, love the old fashioned decor. The place is just outside the train station.

A Fantastic Bar, and Eatery. They are famous for having over 300 Belgian Beers on Offer. The Staff are very good, and Helpful. I spoke with most of the staff, and found them to be very approachable, and fun. It is a Great Place to meet the Locals, and travellers., and try some New Ales.

Ate mussels and had a few beers. Big beer menu which was impressive, but you couldn't chose quite a few of them. Mussels were ok. Chips nice. Atmosphere cosy. Not bad, but quite expensive.
