Spacy yet relatively quiet English pub in the busy centre of Antwerp. Quick and friendly service. The only pub serving that Martin’s Real Ale, apart from other John Martin products (which I’m not a fan of) and several bottled English classics (Fuller’s, Shepherd Neame). Not comparable with a real English pub in England of course, but still rather interesting, though I could not spend a whole afternoon here.

Pleasant and calm place in the afternoon, with relaxing music, liberty interior. Besides the house beer there is no reason to come here: all other beers are widely available, and their thing of rebadging beers is very annoying.

A huge, upmarket bar and restaurant in the centre of Antwerp. Superb English style decor. Some decent beers, not so well kept in some cases. Superb attentive service. I would return.

An ornate bar of yesteryear, kind of a London meets Vienna feel to it. Clientelle is older and there for the food. Staff is friendly enough and I tried there housebeer which is okay.

Fairly generic looking attempt at an English theme pub, house beer was pretty awful.

A Belgian pub serving real ale is a rarity. that’s about the only reason to visit this pub, but at the prices they charge, you are better of taking the train to England to have a drink :p

Contrived, expensive and pointless. The equivalent of ’Belgian’ cafes in London and fake Irish pubs the world over. If you want real ale go to Britain. There are far, far better places to drink beer in Antwerp.

If you are nearby, pretty much only reason to seek this one out is that they actually have a cask ale which brewed only for them which is nice, not bad but not astonish beer either. Future additions might be nice.
Same owner as Kelly’s & Bier Central which is not the best of things considering how quickly Bier Central became completely unbearable. Seemed more like an “ok”, slightly pretensions Belgian pub-style/UK restaurant to me than a pub or a bar – didn’t eat there but menu is quite extensive (restaurant size not bar with food size), wine-list is much, much longer than the beer list, no opinion about it since I know nothing about the wine but seemed a bit like they were trying to pass average wines as a high class ones but that is just an impression, I know zilch about wine.
The beer is few standard foreign macro’s you can get at any pub, handful beers which I have no idea what they were supposed to be since they had names like ‘kriek’ bar without brewery mentioned – appears like they added a 2 or 3 common UK stuff on the list now since my visit.

British style pub only steps from the main train station. Food is typical pub fare. Beers are good enough. Basic service. Only come if you’re near the station.

They have a real ale on tap ! the first time I see this in Belgium. We had also some food ... amazing, verry classy!
You have to see the interior, again amazing: a real classic london interior. This is the most beautiful place we saw during our visit in Antwerp; I even saw in Belgium.
