passed by on weekend with the parents in-laws a fairly difficult to find cafe in a small alley called the garre it is a cozy historic looking place it was busy but still found a table here you have to taste their house beer the triple de garre is very good the other list is good but ni really special but still a good place to go for the atmosphere and their house beer
Visited here mid September, midweek, just after opening. Very old school and quaint, with a mix of tourists and what appeared to be regulars. The house beer, served with cubes of creamy cheese, is a must. I could have several in quick time, but that would have made for a sleepy afternoon. Good service. Prices on other beer looked reasonable. Pretty much a must visit.
First challenge is to find it! Hiding in a allyway what you need to enter true a little iron gate between 2 stores. Always busy but if you dont mind sharing a table with complete strangers then you almost everytime find a place to sit. Huge beer selection but you really need to try their house triple! Nice place to be once you find it.
Excellent bar, stopped by on a mid-week night and the place was very busy. Managed to get a seat by the window upstairs which was nice. Excellent menu with it spanning several pages. Had the house tripel which was excellent, as were the two bottle I followed it with. Lively feel to the place and somewhere I'd go back to if I'm back in Bruges - probably the best bar I stopped by at in Belgium and there were quite a few good ones.
Hidden down a tiny alleyway that we actually walked past numerous times before we spotted it, this old bar seems to be a word-of-mouth favourite amongst the old guard Bruges afficionados and was busy on our visit. Has a nice well-worn feel about the place, with creaky floors and lots of old wooden furniture filling every available space. We squeazed into a spot by a window upstairs, and were promptly given a beer menu by the attentive bar staff stationed upstairs. Beer menu is more sizeable than normal, covering all the classics plus one or two new ones for me. Unusually listed by beer name with no reference to the brewery or beer style. If you happen to choose a less common beer, like me, the gentleman will rap his knuckles on the bannister overlooking the downstairs area to get the attention of someone else who brings it up. Around 7 beers on draft including their house tripel which is decent. Bar staff very friendly and helpful. Prices ok. Nice place, good atmosphere.
