We sat in for the England vs Belgium match for the World Cup. The locals were very engaging with me and my girlfriend. We met a local who’s name we didn’t catch but was one of the loveliest men I’ve ever met. If you know his name please let us know. As for the pub and the staff they were brilliant. Couldn’t wish for a better place to get a drink

Gave this place 3stars only because 1st time visit and only popped in for a beer while looking around the castle. Still Staff were freindly and service was Fast. This qwerky little bar is a must see bar and the trip to a toilet visit is a little on the spooky side as you venture down to the dungeon that once was to get there. Summing up a must see visit.

The guy works so hard here. Taking orders, payment, pouring drinks, serving. It's a tiny place inside but can squeeze plenty outside. Plus you can sit on the wall.
The beer is good we had a few glasses of both the blonde and dark tongolo and their cherry beer.
We visited all 3 days we were in Ghent. On the last day we opted for their mixed platter plate which was delicious and good value and went down well with the beer.
Certainly recommend this place.
Prices are good the service is excellent and it's great to sit outside on a warm day to watch the goings on I the v square.
Especially nice when the musician's are playing on the streets.
Cheers!!!

Visited during a heatwave so a good cold beer was very welcoming and this café did not disappoint. Stopped by for coffees during the day and sat near the window watching the world go by. The interior is really lovely and the delft tiles on the wall have a mix of traditional and modern designs. Staff are professional and polite and always received a warm welcome Cheers!

Stopped here on hot day, seated outside under awning facing the square, great for people watching and chilling. Pay as you go bier. A bit characterless as mostly frequented by tourists.
