Claims to be the smallest bar in Ghent. Certainly is one of the oldest, housed next to the mediëval Vleeshuis. Small and usually crowded and my relations with the staff are, let’s say, not optimal, so I don’t make it to this pub very often. I did have Gulden Draak there yesterday but only because the weather was still good enough to sit outside - but then, there are cosier corners in Ghent to sit outside with a beer. Beer selection is average for a bar in a Belgian city centre, never found anything truly interesting there, not even when the former owner still ran it. Atmosphere was better in those days, though. Not my cup of tea.

Visited in 2011. Very small place but also very cool. It looks too small for a pub but there are a couple of tables inside. Me and my father ended up talking to the bartender and one of the locals. Not the best selection but still worth a visit.

Beatiful little bar in the city center. Friendly staff, but this is’nt a beer bar. Just some average boring Belgian beers, nothing special.

Funny house, lacy staff. Few interesting beers. Try to go upstairs, if there is room. Smallest beer-room I have been in, and with a great view.

Good service from friendly staff, loud music and a real mix of clientele. My wife and I really liked the small cosy atmosphere and the fact that even as tourists we were welcomed back on our second visit. Wish I had a local like this. Not a great selection but a great place to sit.

Very small place in the central of Gent. Never went upstairs since there was plenty of room outside. Not a huge selection, but they do have a few good ones.

En av de minste og mest særpregede puber jeg noensinne har besøkt. Originale keramiske fliser fra 1700-tallet, rester av galgene fra 1600-tallet, og verdens minste annnen etasje - max antall personer ad gangen: 7! Kjempehyggelig vertskap som er stolt av stedet sitt, men ølutvalget er meget begrenset. Allikevel det stedet du bare MÅ besøke i Gent.

Charming and historical little place. Very small. Thought the beer selection was ’t that special, but combining a good beer they serve with a sit here is quite remarkable. So all by all worth a visit but don’t expect too much.

Beside being the smallest bar in Ghent they don’t offer that much beers. It’s very nice to go up stairs and sit on the top table (if it’s free...) or to sit outside where you have a nice view on Ghent. It’s next to ’waterhuis aan de bierkant’ where they serve alOt more beers.

Tiny place, but fun. Selection not that great, but there’s Orval so can’t complain. Went up some ridiculous stairs to a tiny upstairs room with a capacity of 6. Stairs were terrifying on the way down. Prices were pretty good. Worth going to for an Orval and to enjoy the atmosphere.
