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.

As I walked up to the entrance, loud sounds were permeating the walls and windows, but I continued inside. There are a few tables on the main level but when football (European that is) is on, those and the bar area are quite crowded. There is seating upstairs but no bar service until 8:00 PM. I loitered around a bit sampling various beers from the lengthy list (primarily Netherlands beers). As soon as a couple abandoned their small table I took it and continued on with my beers and then food. The food was fresh and I enjoyed the stuffed pepper alongside my beers. I tried a couple house beers and they were pretty good. The service was fairly prompt.

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.

Visited in september 2014, with beery friends. Placed in the city center, rather easy to find. Huge place, lots of seatings, both inside and outside. They do samples ( very, very small ones ). The beers were not served in the best condition, but will give it a go another time, being in the area..

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.

Very large place right next to the Grote Kerk downtown Den Haag. Typical English pub atmosphere, nice long bar and lots of seating. They serve their own beers, all English style ales on cask. They also have the typical macroís on tap and a 200+ long bottle list. The beers were OK, not stellar but Iíve had much worse. The prices for the food and for their own beers were average, didnít check the bottle list. Service was quite good, which was a nice plus. Iíd recommend it to travelers in town.
