Surprisingly big and spacious, very nicely decorated. Staff seems inexperienced, they never look at other tables, if they return from waiting other tables back to the bar. It was surprisingly hard to catch their attention without shouting. This was a bit annoying as I was trying to order beer before my food went cold. The food was absolutely delicious! I had the rabbit leg in mustard sauce which was perfect. My wifeís pasta with mushrooms and truffle was also excellent even if we couldnít detect any truffle. Then again, maybe it was for the better, cause it might have been truffle oil that they forgot to add (nothing worse than the petro chemical waste which is being sold off as a delicacy. Google it!). Very good deal for the kids. Usually we have our kid just eat from our plate, but since neither of us was getting fries, we ordered him a mini steak with fries. Very attentive option! The beers... welll. Half of those I tried had diacetyl. I drew their attention to this on the first beer, and got another one for free, but there was no communication after that. No sorry, no nothing. Very weird. So I didnít bother after the second and just ordered two others which were very much ok. The weirdest thing was the "seasonal beer". When I asked what it was, I got a nice deScription from the beer from one waiter, explaining it was a darker beer, pretty heavy, little fruity, etc. When later on I tried to order it (one does not start with a winter ale), another waitress told me it was not ready yet, still fermenting. Umm, ok, thatís pretty weird as it was December 27th, and why didnít the first guy tell me that it was unavailable then? Like I said, it seemed that the staff was pretty inexperienced.

Small, but very nice brewery located (operates separately) in restaurant. Owners are constantly perfecting their beers and results are wonderful!

Visited on a nice summer Friday. Superb looking village center with that typical Dutch look. (try finding a larger than average house). Was introduced to the brewer, who was friendly as most people in town. Itís great to sit outside, but a view towards their installation would be just as good. Incredible how they manage to brew in such a small place, but they really are constricted to 300 liters per session. And ... manual bottling, so no containers smaller than 75cl available. Tried the wheat beer which was excellent. Didnít have any food.

Brewpub on a beautiful location in the lovely small town Groede. Small selection, but all beers you wonít easily find anywhere else.

Stopped by the place on Tues 27/12/2011 afternoon, closed, looked like it was no longer in operation. Website link is broken. I guess Iíll give a 4 for the awesome location in a quaint little village. Just a long drive through the countryside to find the place out of business. Latest info = In 2010 verliet Adinda de Leeuw de brouwerij daar zij moeite had om een dergelijk drukke baan te combineren met het moederschap (in 2010 was haar kind 10 jaar). Brouwerij De Drie Koningen werkt nauw samen met de Hoge School Gent, een avondschool, afdeling brouwen. 20% van de lesuren, ofwel 120 uur per jaar, doen de leerlingen in de Groese brouwerij ervaring op in de praktijk. Onder leiding van een leraar brouwen de studenten diverse bieren.

A pub in a superb setting, a beautifully preserved village, on a well-filled market square with a Gothic church, outside terrace and plenty of room inside, including a kidsí corner, and, more important, a brewery. Difficult to find, unless your car fits on a bicycle road. 15 mins by bicycle from the beach, BTW. Service is good, explanations straightforward. Eraclea, an international (Italian?) chain provides an extensive line of 18 ice tea shakers, 48 teas, 18 milk shakes, 10 chocolate drinks and a lot of coffees. The brewery makes 2 beers so far, and 2 more beers are made for them by Brewery Strubbe in Flanders. Food includes snacks and extensive meals, including beer cuisine, as the bread made with the spent grains. Drie Koningen meaning the 3 wise men visiting the infant Jesus, and a lot of features, including the barstools, are decorated with their crowns. If in this neighbourhood, a must.
