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. (Last visited 25 September 2014).

English style pub with English menu and indeed also English spoken visitors and service. Quite a nice selection, also some own brews, Tasted few, one was bit flat, the other OK. Had a nice tasting evening with my friend.

Very big pub like you will find in the United Kingdom. Brewed beers on the premises and if you donít like them there are also many other beers find on their list.

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.

An ok take on a British style pub; with some decent in house brew. Typical English pub food (so-so). Very convenient location to site in old pedestrian zone. Lots of yuppies in the crowd; a little expensive. An ok place; have one or two and move on down the road.

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.

(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.

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.

A large English style brewpub in the centre of Den Haag. Itís improved significantly since they started brewing their own ales once again. They have six cask ales of which some are very decent indeed and some need a little work! There is an extensive bottle selection, but itís not cheap. Service is usually very good and itís probably the best place in the city to watch big football matches if football is your thing. Donít eat here though. The food is truly awful. I keep "giving it one more try" every six months and every six months my stomach asks me if iím trying to kill it! So, the beer is great... but take your credit card unless you drink their own beer and eat elsewhere!
