Was looking forward to this restaurant. I’ve browsed through the restaurants book before and it all looked quite delicious, and so did the beers paired with it. Unfortunately our visit was less satisfying. Service was absent, only question asked was ’did you enjoy’ after every course. No attention whatsoever by any of the waiters. The waiter was also very stressed out and had the irritating habbit of actually running around in the restaurant. Every time he passed by our table we had the impression the whole restaurant was shaking. Service was really unsatisfying. Beerlist was very short, Watou’s beers, some macros and 1 cuvée hommelhof (blend of a witbier and hommelbier if i’m right, brewed at vaneecke) The beerpairing was not at all spot on. We even got an old bottle of chouffe with our dinner (BB2016, so i guess 2-3 years old), which had no interest at all!! I was hoping for some more local unknown beers... The old chouffe was just over the top... Also the beers were served really badly, Food was great though! Just one big minor detail, we had 3 courses in 3h time, so we all left hungry. Such a shame. Go there if you’re in the area and want to eat well, but don’t expect a good beer experience.

We went here in August 2013 with high expectations. But after the dinner we left gravely disappointed. The food was tasteless and uninspiring. The beer list was short and dull, dominated by low quality beers. This place obviously once was a herold for fantastic cooking with beer. It definitly is not so today. A place to avoid.

Visited 12/2013. Charmingly located right on the Watou market place, beautifully decorated with an upper end restaurant’s sense of style, toned down with West-Flemish down-to-earthness, going very well with the beer theme. All courses in the brewer’s menu apart from the lacklustre cinnemon apple desert and/or cheeses were splendid, beautifully incorporating the beers and just slightly edgy enough. House beer "Cuvée" a tasty blend of Watou Witte and Poperings Hommelbier, the rest of the selection focuses on the ultra-local (fair enough, in a place like Watou), but offers no real surprises, especially not from tap. Good service, although they could train their imported waitress(es) from 3kms South over the border to speak Dutch more fluently to make this a wholly charming+impeccable experience.

Good food, great beers. But above all the pairing of both food and beers is superb!

Our first time at the Hommelhof must have been somewhen in the Nineties, and since then each time we are there it seems to us the food is even more delicious, imaginative and to the point than before. Perhaps the beer selection could benefit from being refreshed by some of the newer Belgian developments. But already with the "old" Watou beers the Hommelhof is near to perfection.

This was the best beer food pairing experience we had in Belgium . Food was good earthy Belgian food...not ourtre gourmet or edgy and absolutely delicious. Beer selection was extensive enough for their menu and many of the menu items had been prepared with beer in creative and delicious ways.

Does most of the beers from the two Watou breweries and good, but pricey, food. Another one to add to your crawl around Watou square on a sunny Sunday afternoon, when the whole village and half of Poperinge turn up.
