I’ve been in this bar Oud Postje twice during beginning of July. Great experience. Genuine spirit. I ’ve seen young & elder people which is unusual and... inspiring. Great service. I discovered true gems here like Black Albert or Cuvée Delphine on tap. Fantastic !

Nice interior, extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is also very nice! Large beer list and more than 15 draft beers, most from Struise, also some very rare ones. I had for example, Aestatis, Cuvee Delphine Cask Strength, Maximo,...
Very nice place!

Nice honest food. Normal prices for Belgium. Friendly service and fantastic selection of beers. A place to stop in the holy Meca of Vleteren.

Not sure what else you want from a bar. It’s probably the best kept secret in Westhoek and West Flanders.
I worked in the area for a month so i lived at Molenhof.
Gueuze Tilquin was on tap for June. read that again, twice. such a nice treat to have.
the tap list varies, but its Struise heavy. no shocker since the brewery is kitty corner. the bottle list is also great, especially if you want some of the barrel-aged Struise beer.
Food is Belgian comfort food. don’t go there wanting a salad or something light. it won’t happen. The best food items: hennepot (not for everyone. describing it to someone is gross. just trust me and eat it), the bitterballen with Pannepot stewed meat, any of their steaks are great and cooked rare to order. their fritjes are the best i’ve had in Belgium. crispy and perfectly salted. i could just go there and eat fries. but i don’t. i end up ordering lots and lots. prices seem high, but the portions are huge. go for dinner and don’t expect to eat again until mid-day the next day.
service: i know the staff well. Martine’s the matriarch. if you don’t speak Flemmish, then yeah, wait for Bjorn or someone else working there. Be patient when you order, since its 2-3 people working the entire restaurant and bar. on a saturday night, the dining room’s packed, so you will need to put your name down or wait 2-3 hrs for dinner service.
decor: it has a Christian saint theme. its kitschy but great. You aren’t allowed to smoke in Belgium bars, but this being a small town, they don’t care. which really sucks. you’ll stink like smoke if you’re at the bar. that’s the worst part about the bar. there’s also a backyard patio that you have to ask to sit in if you’re there at lunch and it’s really nice.
There aren’t a million food options in the neighbourhood (there’s another steak restaurant 5 min away, but whatever) and there certainly aren’t many better drink options.

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.
**********Update 30 May 2015:
There should really be a separate entry for the restaurant because holy shit the service there is awful. The server wasn’t pleasant. Didn’t bother to tell us one of the items we ordered was out of stock until 20 minutes after we ordered it. We had to wait 2 HOURS for our food. The only positive about the visit was that the food was quite good. Take this with a grain of salt since you might die of hunger before receiving your meal. I was told to pay for the meal at the bar. There was no one behind the bar for 15 minutes. Just a bad day at the office? Maybe, but I won’t be going back to find out. I’ll still go to the bar when Tom Cruise is behind it.

Visited the 23h May 2015. Very nice place just in 2 min from the De Struise Brewery. Very good atmosphere and nice decoration. The staff is friendly and take care about what they are doing. The service is excellent. About the beer selection, that was really nice when I was there to find a Kernel on tap and also a Tilquin! and with a very good place. I will visit for sure a second time to validate my rate. But for sure you have to do a break there if you are going to In de Vrede or De Struise.

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. Update 1/1/15: Just gets better & better - now has 12 beers on tap mostly from De Striuse. Probably my favourite cafe in the area.

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 !!!!
