Friendly staff and place but very expensive when you are used to Lille or belgian prices. Sélection is good for this région of France who is more into wines, and no mainstream beers on tap. So over all its not too bad.

An odd one... this is one of 11 similar bars throughout France that all have the same feel, crowd and - unfortunately - beer menu. Decorated in a sort of barn house style with rustic wooden benches and (fake) trees. Quite cosy and fun, I have to admit. Service is okay, not knowledgeable though. Atmosphere and crowd is accordingly students and alike. Nobody seems to come here for the beer per se, as the mostly Belgian offerings are nothing special, even for French bars. Well, you can get lucky with the monthly special (I am always happy drinking fresh Saison Dupont on tap) and it’s the only bar in the area I know that serves (BrewDog) IPAs, but... why this boring menu? Why no French brews at all? Why not more variety? One only has to look at the crazy prices... 6,90 euro for a Hardcore IPA? 15 euro for a 75cl Choufe Houblon? No thanks!
Update: Been here again and there are some nice additions to the beer menu such as the excellent Musketeers beers (their black IPA Westkust is for example 6 euro). Still can get very crowds, but this time the bar tender had some basic knowledge of modern beer styles and was very friendly, so Rightfully increased my rating.
