Stopped in for a beer while staying in Poperinge. As soon as I walked in, it smelled like I walked into a smoking station. The smell was overwhelming. There was no one at the bar so I took a seat outside. It does have a nice view of the town center and a decent beer selection. Service was decent. I got my beer, but couldnít get over the smell of smoke on the glassware. Canít say Iíd go back.

Now run by a local hop farmer and after a very dodgy transitional stage is back on form with an improved beer selection featuring De Dolle & Struise. Update 1/1/15: now has probaly the most interesting (but not the largest) beer menu in town with a De Struise beer on tap and the likes of Fort Lapin in bottle - check the cabinet as not everything is on the menu.

Rather large bar in 2 stores right on Groze markt. A few taps and bottles, mostly locals, including some Struise, Hommelbier, etc. Service a little slow, fairly priced. Nothing to go out of the way for, but nice enough for a drink after a tour around town.

Great beer at a pretty sweet price. Nice harmony downstairs and an old cinema upstairs that shows the world championship games.

This place totally surprised me and they had a good selection of both Struise and De Dolle. Very nice owner and the best place on Poperinge! Was there during the Football World Cup and on the second floor they had like a movie theater with football.

Visited October 2012.
After a string of unsuccessful stops around the oost/westvleteren area we stopped here looking for something to eat. The problem was, of course, that outside of tourist season NOTHING is open during the week outside of an hour for lunch and another hour or two for dinner. I donít remember what we actually ate (aside from the cup of soup that I had) but we probably ended up settling for some crappy halal food. They did have cake which in retrospect I should have tried. They have an interesting bottle list of some things that you donít normally see, mostly local stuff. What I ordered wasnít bad which was the hommel bier which seemed fitting considering where we were and that we had just come from the hop museum. Service was decent considering this is Belgium. Not sure Iíd journey across Belgium to get here but since at some point Iíll undoubtedly be back in the area (still have to visit de Dolle and Rodenbach after all) Iíll probably stop in for a beer on the way to/from St Bernardus to load up on more schwag.

Has a few good beers. Convenient location near the square. Not worth going out of your way for, but the easy access makes it worth a quick visit.

Went here because it was literally one of the only places open in the city. Small draft list with a half decent selection of bottles. Not really worth going to on its own, but it may be your only option depending on when youíre in town.

This Grote Markt cafe has a decent enough beer selection that included a couple of Duponts when we were there. Food is not bad. Worth a look while making the rounds in Poperinge.
