Cycling, walking, driving to this place is fantastic. The place however can be very busy, but the presented food (cheese,...) is very good. And of cours one can drink a Westvleteren here. If you are lucky and the shop is open one can bring six or more bottles home.

Very modern, sleek, stylish. Service was excellent, food was very good, and the beer selection- well they only had three- but who cares because you canít find those three beers practically anywhere. The blonde especially. The Westy ice cream kicks butt too!

Quite a huge place with fluorescent lighting, cramped tables, a long waiting line for the small store they have, quite some noise, even only three types of beer served.... And it all doesnít matter, because I was way to busy enjoying those beers. Loved the visit to the place, friendly staff, some nice rural surroundings and... a great opportunity to drink some very special beers.

Large bar, build for numbers. If it wasnít for Westvleteren this bar would be crap. Too bad the Weslvleteren was served way too cold.

Strange to find a beer so hard to find,all most mythical, all the sudden easelly poured in for you the way you would do with a pilsner or wheatbeer like it means nothing. The place it self is rather large and not really carrying out a nice atmosphere. Just plain "what you see is what you get" style. Food is not really out of the ordanairy but simple belgium style snacks and sandwiches. Make sure to pick up your 6-pack of beer when you leave!

Had lunch here right before I had my first experience with picking up Westvleteren beer from the abbey. The place is meant moslty to give customers a chance to taste the holy Westvleteren beer. You can drink it at the site. The food is quite allright. We had a sandwich with pate from the abbey which is very tasty. The selection is a little poor. Its either a croque monsieur (toasted sandwich) or a sandwich with pate. But most of the customers make it here because of the beer. Service was a little slow, but then the place was packed during Saturday lunch time.

A romantic venue where you can acquire three of perhaps the most famous beers known to Ratebeerians. The classic Westvleteren. You get serverd in authentic trappist glasses and can actually pick up a six pack from the adjacent Westvleteren store. I loved the pate when I was here last. A terrific Flemish dish oozing quality. I had a little struggle working out the menu and feel that English menus should be displayed. It is a great place but the selection of beer is rather limited. The beers were bottled and kept in fridges. Having a blonde first is a must.

When I first saw In the Vrede I couldnít believe my eyes. What a big and modern bar is this. This first impression was nothing compared to a first look in the bar itself. If was full of people and waiters walking around with liquid gold. It was around 16:00 so luckely I found a place to sit. I ordered the 8 and it was serverd rather quickly. Some time later I came back and it was around 14:00 and it was very calm so that was a real relief. Unfortunately there was a longer waiting time then. The inside is large with good chairs and a little shop where you can buy some Trappist products. You can also buy some beer, but this is very limited. On the outside there is a large terrace where you can sit in all peace and enjoy of the weather and your beer. Between some hours you can choose to take a look at the Claustrum. This a kind of museum where you can learn more about the Trappist order. The selection is rather limited, but I donít see any other reason why you should come here if you will not drink a Westvleteren. The food is good and especially the icecream based on the 12.

In the middle of the Flemish fields you find In de Vrede. The only bar which may serve the Westvleteren Trappist beers. The only reason why you should come here is to taste the Westvleteren. There are no other beers so there isnít a large selection. There are a lot of waiters but on a hot summer day you can wait for some time before you will get your order. The prices for the Westvleteren are ok, but still to high considering that the brewery is just on the other side of the street. If you want to enjoy of a nice Westvleteren in a peacefull surrounding you should come to this place.

Stopped here directly after picking up some 12ís from the Abbey. This place was more modern than what i was expecting, and very large. the service was good, and the staff even helped us find our way to de Struise! The selection is obviously only comprised of three beers, but thatís what people come here for... the pricing was good to, and we got some Westvleteren Goblets to take home.
