Sorry but the Dutch would call this ’vergane glorie’. During the eighties this was pretty much the only place in the periphery where you could get a decent beer. They have obviously been resting on the same laurels ever since. I have just revisited after 2 years and found disinterested bar staff that can’t offer me an Orval (fairly standard these days) but also manage to serve me a Gulpener Dort as a dry and hoppy beer. Sorry but the only thing that this place has going for it is its history and ambiance. There are far better bars in town like Tape, Cafe Meijer and Caspar.
Visited the pub for a tasting. Hadn’t been there in many years and in my memory it was a lot better than it actually is. Back then I thought it was great they had so many (belgian) beers. But now they didn’t have a single beer I hadn’t tasted before. Atmosphere is ok. It’s small, music good and not too loud and there’s a billiart table.
Spend a lot of time there during my studie in (2005-2009). Very nice classic ’brown’ café. Small, old, wooden and a lot of atmosphere. Small outside wit some tables. Nice selection of beers. Mostly belguim.
