We visited here on Saturday 29th September 2012, in fact we sort of stumbled across it as we were just locking our cycles up right next to it before realising that this was one of the places we intended going to today. The pub is situated on a busy junction of canals and shopping streets, though when I say busy I mean predominantly with pedestrians and bikes. There were a few interesting beers on tap and a decent bottled beer list. Whilst we sat outside and also ate (a simple but tasty paninni each) I did venture inside, it was a small, pleasant cafe. However whilst it was not terribly busy Loz noticed a couple near us were seemingly missed/ignored for service and eventually got up and left, another gentleman close by also got tired of waiting and went inside, which we also did. Despite this slight negative, it was a pleasant bar in an interesting area. Closeish by is Bert’s Bierhaus.

Ledig Erf is on a busy square at the edge of the old part of the city, where the old canal meets the city fortifications. It has some attractive art deco stained glass windows and is a bit surreal. We sat under what looked like a huge pale green mushroom and had a bite to eat. The food is fairly limited but we were hungry and ordered toasted sandwiches which were a bit pricey and rather ordinary.
They have 7 taps and about 30 bottles, all listed on a peg board with the lettering on little blocks of wood like children’s building bricks and difficult to read. There wasn’t anything particularly special unless you count the “Longneck”, chosen by Simon as he’d never heard of it and thought it might be interesting, but it turned out to be a standard Heineken. It provided some amusement, anyway.

Very nice if the sun shines and you can find a spot. No need to go here for the selection, which is limited. However, on a warm summer evening I only need a Weihenstephaner, so no biggy.

Visited september 2013. A typical corner cafe placed within walking distance from city center. Mainly mainstreem beers to get here, but they had a few speciels on tap when we visited. Friendly staff and the beers were served in good condition. Would say there would be other places in Utrecht that have more interesting beer card. Los of outdoor seating, could imagine here would be busy on a nice summer day.

Nice café with a spacious terrace. Service depends on the bartender, but most of the time there is good and helpful staff. They have some 30-40 different bottled beers, but those are mostly regular Belgian abbey/trappist beers. Once in a while they do have some surprises on the changeable taps.

This is a tourist kind of place with a decent beer menu (including Lapin Kulta from Finland and De Leckere beers).

Visited a while ago after attending a symposium opposite of this bar. It was raining heavily so I didn’t use the terrace. Small bar, sober interior, a bit dull atmosphere, not very extensive beer list. Had a Christoffel Blond from tap for a decent price. OK place I guess, nothing to write home about either.
