I visited Gruut this past weekend as I had a little extra time in Gent. My initial experience was unfortunately bad as I waited 25 minutes to get my order taken and that only happened because I went up to the bar to let then know that I would like something. 10 minutes later I had 3 samples which priced out at 6.50€. The beer was just OK so I drank up and got out of there as I certainly didn’t have enough time to wait for anything else. As others have mentioned it is a strange set-up for the space and is not very cosy or comfortable.

Spacious brewpub with the brewing equipment visable. A bit slow and confused service, allegedly due totemporarily understaffed crew. Limited beer selction, their own beers were pretty average. Food was also pretty mediocre.

Not a big fan of this place - like drinking in a buildng site. The Gruut beers are a bit dull as well. Food on the other hand was very good.

Visited on a Friday evening. Spartan looking brewpub, not much decoration except for the brewkettles and a little stream of water running through the floor. Also relatively empty in terms of clientele. Tried a taster of 4 beers for €6,50. Beers were all decent, but not very exciting. Service was OK. You can eat here as well, mostly one-pot dishes, but we didn’t try the food. Wouldn’t go back again.

Nice atmosphere, maybe because there was a large group of tourists.
Good, quick and friendly service.
Small selection, but that’s a thing you know when you go to a brewery.
The food was quickly served and the portion was more than enough.
Prices are normal for cities in Belgium.

Ik was echt ongoocheld. Dit cafe heeft dringend een poetsbeurt nodig net als de glazen. De barman moet dringend eens een cursus barman volgen. Het was mijn eerste bezoek en ook mijn laatste

They only serve their own beers, which they claim to brew on this location. the brewing installation massively suggest otherwise, though. quite expensive. Will not return

Nice to have a bar/brewery that specialises in the art of beers with gruut. To me it’s still more a brewery than a bar. The glass is very artistic and gives an extra dimension to the beer.
