Visited this place in september 2009. I was the only customer and had a chat with the waiter, who told me this place was called The English Arse by the locals. When you enter, its like stepping back 100 years, a traditional pub with no bar, rustique wooden floor, and a good place to escape the shopping area nearby. Will for sure revisit next time in AMS. I had the Van Vollenhovens Extra Stout bottle.

This is the Place for testing a good beer in a very old and charming Place and the service is very "local" old Amsterdamīs. TAKE a look in the "kitchen" :) Very good choices of genevers

A charming, old fashioned brown cafť in a quiet side street. Well worth a visit for the timeless atmosphere if not for the beer selection, which isnít huge but had enough to keep me interested. (Visited April 2011).

Unique, traditional pub. Called "De Engelse Reet" by locals. There is no bar, the interior has not changed that much over the last 100 years. No music. Service is very polite and friendly. The beer selection is not that special, but there is Van Vollenhoven Stout (bottled, but by special occasions on tap, as far as I know only here). In September, they tap last yearís bock, after a year aging sweeter and more like a porto. Impressive selection of traditonal Dutch liquors. A mustvisit, not for the beer, but for the atmosphere.

Just a normal Amsterdam cafe with nothing unusual on offer. Ripe for deletion.

Unusual and " dark" pub. Inner much old, not much cured cleansing, a lot " old-style" with furnishing in wood and little space. Modest chosen of bottled beers,interesting blackboard with written by hand the name of some seasonal beers. Desert when I have gone. Kind staff. Food not tried.

Amsterdam seems to have a fair few small bars situated in narrow streets / alleyways just a few steps off a busy shopping street but seeming a million miles away. This one is between Kalverstraat and the cloistered tranquility of the Begijnhof. Not only does it seem far from the bustle of Kalverstraat but itís like stepping back 100 years in time. Very brown, with the usual nicotine-stained walls and ceiling. Just a couple of old boys in when I visited mid-afternoon. The oddity here is that there is no bar counter - just an alcove / passageway at the back, from where the server emerges. All very atmospheric and traditional in feel. So far so good but not so beery. But there are beery attractions, even if they are not essential ones. Firstly, they permanently have Van Vollenhovenís Stout - the Schans recreation that is - supposedly (according to "Around Amsterdam in 80 Beers") on tap and in bottle, but there was no sign of the tap version when I visited. I donít know whether that was just a temporary outage. There are also about 10 beers on tap and 15 in bottle. A solid enough selection but nothing particularly outlandish, with some of the usual Belgian fare and the chance of a rarity or two. I picked up Texels Skimme and Lingen Blond (unfortunately, for I wasnít aware what it was when I ordered it). So, not an unmissable beer destination but well worth a visit for a feel of old Amsterdam and a decent beer or two. Not entirely sure of the opening hours - I think they may vary a little from the ones quoted depending on the day of the week.
