This place is clearly better than Waterhuis aan de Bierkant. The staff is attentive and friendly, which is always a good start. The place itself spreads over three floors, so there is space available. They have a good selection of beers with some nice lambics on the card, though none of them were new to me, and lots of other Belgian beers - classics as well as newer ones. If I ever to back to Gent I will revisit this place.

Speels ingedeeld over drie verdiepingen daardoor groter dan je in eerste instantie door hebt. Royale bierkaart welke wel zo goed als geheel gereserveerd is voor Belgische brouwers. Wel voldoende diversiteit met.ook een aantal porters en ipas en zure bieren. Prijzen redelijk en gemoedelijke bediening
Posto bellissimo tutto in legno con differenti stanze di varie dimensioni.. bella selezione sia spina e bottiglia , personale gentile e con buona conoscenza dei prodotti, l’orario di apertura fino a tardi è un ulteriore punto in più !
Quite large and cozy bar with lots of wood and a good, classic pub ambiance. Was quite lively on a Monday Evening, mostly young people but also a few older people enjoyed their beer. Very interesting beer menu with not only, but lots of Belgian classics, accompanied by a dozen of new wave Belgian beers from BBP, Troubadour and others. Prices were still okay although not cheap, staff was very friendly and attentive. Nice place, enjoyed it quite a lot!
Touristy place with a decent selection of beers. Nice to go out with some friends. Update: it has been quite a while since I visited. Stopped by on the way back from Uncle Babe’s for a nightcap. Tilquin à l’Ancienne² on the bottle list! Really decent selection (best in Ghent??).
Been here many times in the past when I started venturing into the beer world. The original pub was one of classical music and most of the Huyghe beers, including less common ones. In its current form, the range has expanded a bit towards some of the newer micro breweries (3 Fourquets, De La Senne and others) and seems to be more actively engaged in the ever changing beer culture. Used to be owned by the same guy that started Dulle Griet but with the new owner (Maarten), this has become a somewhat more vibrant place, with very friendly staff and an interesting focus on new local beers from the Ghent area. Ever since this is the case, I’ve begun to visit the place more and more often and I find a new tick there almost every time... Ghent, one of my most beloved cities in Belgium, unfortunately still falls a bit short when it comes to absorbing the international beer scene, but in that context I would count Trollekelder among the three most interesting Ghent pubs. Prices can be on the steep side, but still recommended if you’re in town.
