“Great pub with a huge beer list & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Big pub, busy and noisy. Fun atmosphere.

We came here for lunch...the food was tasty & prices were reasonable. Service is a little brisk but we're annoying tourists, so I get it.

We ended up back here for beers after dinner. The place was still hopping. We sampled from the giant beer list and really enjoyed ourselves!

“Huge portions, very friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We ate a late lunch here and could barely eat our dinner 4 hours later! The 4 starters sharing plate would have been more than enough, the pâté was delicious! But the omelette, mussels and half chicken that came after were equally as good. Had the taster set of Delerium beers as well, very nice.

“Awful service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

As stated by others - the mussels are great. But make sure you book ahead. Service however is awful. At dinner time all they want is to get you in and out so that they can get others in. Very rushed, and snarly if you try to stall over drinks, even for a few minutes. We dropped in for a drink about 4pm on another day, and were completely ignored - there were lots of staff, but they were more interested in clearing tables than waiting on us. After 10 minutes of waiting, we walked out.

“A really good "pub with food"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We enjoyed the house "blonde" on more than one occasion and also ate one evening. The place can be very busy and its advisable to book. The food is good value and plentiful. Menu is fairly short and compares with 400 beers on offer. The card is about 2 inches thick, needed to describe all thats on offer in three languages.

We really enjoyed it.

“Excellent mussels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Whilst service may not be that fast the wait for the mussels is well with it. A jumbo pot easily serves two and they are yum. We had the house special which is in a curry sauce. They also have a really good selection of beers here. This is well worth a visit if in Brugge and great value for money. We had mussels at another place (and the name escapes me) in one of the small squares and we were disappointed with them.
