De dehors, et en sortant de la vieille école, nous avions faim. Je criais famine même. Deux restaurants de l’autre côté de la roue, et je crois qu’on est plus que bien tombé. Un service impécable, une bien bonne bouffe avec un bon choix. Et une excellente carte de bière avec toutes les De Struise que l’on a pas bu boire à la brasserie et une sélection de bières des meilleures brasseries locales. Top !!!!

A characterful pub and restaurant with one of the better kitchens in the area, and an extensive bottle list to satisfy even the pickiest Belgian beer drinkers. A number of hoppy-pale Belgian beer was available for us to try, the (assumed) beer manager was a younger man, knowledgeable, making very good recommendations based on what we were looking for. The bar side I can’t comment on other than to say it’s full of cigarette smoke and should be avoided for drinking beer.

This place is just a across the road from Struise brewery, so we went here for dinner after our visit there. Upon entering we learned thatt we should have booked a table, since the place was fully booked for the whole night! We decided to take the chance, and have a beer in the nice cozy bar, and luckily for us after a little hours wait they had a cancellation, and we got the table for dinner. The bar room is cozy, old wooden tables, beer posters and signs. 2 taps and a long bottle list including loads of Struise, other locals, and some sours from Cantillon, 3 Fontainen, etc. Good prices, Golden Blend was listed at 7€! unfortunately sold out, wich also showed to be the case with some other beers i asked for. The restaurant was nice, food was good and served in nice sized potions. Staff was seriosly understaffed, wich made the service a bit random, and rather slow. Actually while sitting at the bar it had a bit of Faulty Towers feeling, with the 3 servers taking turns walking in and out of the bar, into the restaurant,and the backroom , sometimes leaving it empty for up to 10 minuttes. That been said the service we had from the young guy (Tom Cruise) when seated in the restaurant, while still insanely busy, was excellent.

This rating is for the bar only. Tom Cruise has served me both times I’ve visited. The beer list is great if you’re a fan of Struise. Prices for harder to find beers are a steal compared to other bars that stock them. I’ve been permitted to buy a few bottles for takeaway at each visit. The food/bar snacks are excellent. The service from Tom Cruise (Bjorn) is nothing short of superb. He is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and accommodating. I told my friend this is now my favorite bar in Belgium. After I said that, Tom Cruise said it’s only getting better. They are going from 2 taps to 15 in the coming weeks to include Struise, Kernel, and a rotating Trappist. The place is small but huge in character. I can’t wait to go again.

Located on the outskirts of the village (exactly where you turn right to Westvleteren), this cozy restaurant is the place to go to for Struise beer if you happen to be here on any other day than a Saturday (when the bottle shop at the brewery is open). The staff are very friendly (the Tom Cruise guy even offered to call the brewey to let me in for a visit!) and seem to have sufficient knowledge of what they sell, and that means virtually all the currently available Struise beers (2 of them on tap) and over 100 other Belgian beers in bottles. I have just had some toast for a snack here, and it was quite good, but I haven’t tried anything else. Not exactly cheap but really nice. A must-visit on the way to Westvleteren.

Big thanks to harrisoni for showing me this place. A bar that looks uninteresting on the outside, but which on the inside features a homely and cosy local bar with a beer list to die for, featuring an amazing range of Struise beers alongside a great range of the local Trappist and Abbey beers. Food is hearty in the bar and more along French lines in the restaurant. Service was very friendly although food took a while to arrive. Come her for a quiet authentic Belgian bar to sup some amazing beers and relax into the vibe.

Excellent cafe and restaurant. Now has a really good beer menu including over 20 from Struise and at reasonable prices. The restaurant does excellent and plentiful food.
Service can be slow when the old lady is in charge but much better when the young guy who looks like Tom Cruise is in there -efficient, enthusiastic and very knowledgable.

I don’t think (looking at the rest of the ratings) that I had the usual service. This place was uhm..... interesting. The old lady was friendly but didn’t know anything at all about beer. Also I’m still waiting for my food .____." We just decided to pay the bill and leave. At least Kraddel got some good beers with him.

Bonito restaurante con agradable terraza. La selección de cerveza es de cervezas locales pero tienen un montón de struise. La cerveza es barata. La comida no esta mal pero es cara
