The Fiddler is a huge place in a prime location in the centre of Den Haag - a corner spot with large windows overlooking what I think of as a typically Dutch urban scene (a church, a cobbled street, tramlines, bicycles, geraniums and trees; only the canal was missing). It used to be a Firkin pub, possibly the only European one outside the UK. It’s still billed as an English pub and as these simulacrums of English / Irish / Scottish pubs go, it’s not bad. Not unexpectedly, there’s a red telephone box; also a mannequin playing a double bass in a punt, a collection of wooden barrels and a little balcony set up for a small orchestra. You get the idea. They brew English style ales which are passable and there’s a very good bottle list as well as a fairly extensive food menu in English with Dutch translations. There was an advert for bar staff and we noticed that one of the requirements was fluency in both English and Dutch.

It looks like what you expect from a (large) English pub, with a lot of wood (floors and walls, wallpaper, quite stinky, with pitiful toilets. Pleasant service. Their own beers are not very good, but at least they have a long bottle list.

Hadn’t been in here for over 4 years, what a change for the better. Back brewing again, and it tastes like somebody actually knows how to keep cask beer properly. Very impressive bottled beer range.

a decent selection of bottled beer with few surprises (yet). The selection keeps growing. They have 4 or 5 of their own beers on tap now.

It was very quiet during my visit. Friendly service by English barman, who spoke quite acceptable Dutch. Sampler available. Next to the Fiddler beers, there is a wide range of other beers available. All day full English breakfast, pies, fish & chips at reasonable prizes. Good enough for a visit when in The Hague.

Visited during lunch time and sampled all 5 house beers for only EUR 2. That’s ridiculously cheap. Then I had two bottles, one of which was on the house. 7 rates for under EUR 10... Friendly, a bit dank and musty but that’s not such a big deal.

(Visited Feb 2013) Nice brewpub in the middle of the city centre, just in the shadow of the church (Grote Kerk). Th place is quite big, interior in brown wood, with lots of tables, Extra seating area upstairs. The main reason for a visit are their own beers, they have up to 5 cask conditioned ales brewed on the premises, quality ranging from not so good to really good. An additional 10 taps of mixed interest. Good selection of bottles, but hardly anything rare. Visited twice on a Thursday, on the early afternoon it was quite calm, later on (around 6-8 PM) it was more busy, with a very mixed clientele. Service was friendly and efficient. Decent pub food. Worth a visit.

Visited on a Saturday, just after opening. Spacious 2-storey English pub, nice sturdy wooden interior, plenty of seating and lots of room in front of the long stretched bar. Football on screen, but not in a disturbing way. Service is rather slow but friendly, burger was tasty but overpriced, as are most of their bottled beers. Selection is very good nevertheless, especially bottled, tap selection consists of their mediocre house beers and a few macro beers. Likeable and cozy pub.
