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. Itís still billed as an English pub and as these simulacrums of English / Irish / Scottish pubs go, itís not bad. Not unexpectedly, thereís 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 thereís 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. (Visited 30 September 2013).

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.

Nice interior, roomy and spacious. OK service. 7 taps: Jupiler, Hoegaarden, Franziskaner, Strongbow, Guinness, Hertog Jan and Palm. 113 bottles (says on the wall). No cask (at the moment). OK prices. Football on the big screen. Free Wi-Fi.

Hadnít 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.

caesar  (260) Bunnik/Utrecht, Netherlands | March 16, 2014
Visited on a sunday afternoon, while premier league matches where playing. Atmoshpere was quite ok. Bit filthy wooden interior. Beer is mediocre at best. Service was quite ok, at least from the lady who served the beers at my table. Upon asking which Fiddler beer she preferred, she answered that she didnt like any of them. An honest answer, I appreciate that. and unfortunately she was right. Mediocre at best. Plenty of other beers available though. I like UK pubs, but it didnt do the trick this time actually.

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. Thatís 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 thatís not such a big deal.

Svesse  (205) Hšsselby, Sweden | April 7, 2013
(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.
