A large, almost English feeling pub with a large amount of Belgian beers. While the vast majority is well known, I was stil able to pick out a couple of (local) ticks. More importantly, the atmosphere is great, with really friendly staff, very laid back, surprisingly good food and very okay (especially for the area) prices. We really enjoyed our stay here. Friendly staff an locals, knowledge enough. yes, they can improve their beer list a bit, but with so many good Belgians you could also argue there’s not much left to wish for if you don’t care about ticks.

First came here about 25 yrs ago when it was a smallish bar of some character. Now it has expanded beyond recognition and has adopted the foreign ’English Bar’ style seen in cities all over the world - everywhere except England that is.Selection is pretty good, although the menu is a bit of a nightmare to read. Service ok. Prices are VERY high(E6.60 for Rochefort 10) and it does seem like a bit of a tourist trap. Certainly not how I remember it from all those years ago.

Quite a large place just off the sea front in Ostend with an enormous list of beers, some of which are not available, many are variants of the normal Belgian popular beers, but plenty to be going on with. It lacks some atmosphere we thought and the service was aimed more at the locals than us visitors, but hey ho. It’s definitely worth a visit but maybe you will have to search hard for anything unusual.

The beerlist is very extensive, but most are "regular" Belgian beers. But with some searching you can find a couple of interesting beers. They also have some nice beers on tap. The place is cosy furnished, a bit like an English pub, including a fireplace. Service was not so good: not helpfull and not very good suggestions. But maybe we had some tough luck with the waiter.

Une carte assez chouette avec une bouffe correct. En revanche le service est juste deplorable. On a l’impression de faire chier les serveurs. 20 minutes pour le premier service. Et sinon toujours en attente du deuxième service. Qu’ils aillent bien crever la bouche ouverte.

Nice bar, just steps away from the beach. Perfect stop to catch some nice beers from their extensive listed. Sorted by style.

Really nice bar! Very extensive beer list, which makes it nice, but on the other hand I always find it hard to choose what I want to order, because it’s that much.
