Dinner stop on our first night in Den Haag. Near the ocean, cold and breezy which is pretty much the norm here. The had outdoor seating, but the wind was gusty enough to blow even heavy things over, so that was not really an option. Inside was nice and homy. Service was solid, perhaps a bit slow but friendly and competent. They have a pretty good belgian focused bottle list, including all three Westy’s, as well as a tap list of their own beers plus some guest brews. They offer a flight of five which when I was there included four of theirs and a bartender selected guest. Their beers were pretty average at best, unfortunately. Food was good, and with the bottle selection you cannot NOT find something you would enjoy here. Solid choice for the waterfront.
Great Place, awesome food, lovely service.
We stumbled across this place while on vacation here in DenHaag/Scheveningen. The Food is really good, the Beer Selection is decent and the service seems to be a Bunch of nice Beer loving People you want to hang out with.
Great view over the harbour, some ok pub brews and some other stuff on the beermenu as well. A good place to take a break if you are visiting the area. Close to the beach. Vistited February 1st, 2015 and did a tasting of all the pub’s available brews, outside on the terrace in the sun. There was no wind, the winter was cold but the sun was out and it was really nice, especially with the view on the harbour in these conditions. Went inside when the sun went lower to have some winter specials. Visited again on April 20th, 2015 to have a pub brewed IPA and some Orvals with a friend. In the time I had one Orval, some loud local dude a table next to me had 3 Westmalle Tripels. LOL

A bright and lively café at the end of the inner harbour. The walls are busy with posters and beer mats and the bar has a distinctly nautical feel. They have ten taps, including five of their own (it’s a brewpub), and sample trays are available. We were made to feel welcome by the very friendly staff but then we were with John, who lives just round the corner and is a regular customer.

Visited a few times, latest in september 2014, with beery friends. Placed in the harbour, easy to get to. Parking outside or the tram stops close by. They have around 5 beers of their own, on tap. It is possible to get a sampler, nice size. They have also a few beers on bottle. They do nice food as well. Spacy, cosy brewpub, decorated with a lot of beer sign. Lots of seats inside, as well as outside. Friendly staff, for sure worth a visit.
Brewpub with an overlook along the peirs of Scheveningen, very nice sitting outside on a sunny day. 5 house beers and a few geust on tap. Nice bottle list with a good selection of some of the better Belgian beers, a few lambic etc. Good value, especially considering the area. 5 nice size samples for 5,5€. Fine service.

Hmm did I not rate this place? Weird. Been awhile since I visited. Nice place, both for beer and to have (pub) dinner. Staff was very friendly, brewer came up to ask my opinion about his beers. Valued the feedback. I felt very comfortable and had a good time there.
Big plus for having their own beer. Unfortunately it is not the quality to make a detour for. Food was ok, but the fish salad had too much dressing. You’d think fish so close to the sea would be better. OK experience.
At the smelly part of the harbour...typical looking from the outside, quite used and some brown wood inside... Brewery is inside, looks pretty neat. They got a bunch of taps with their own beer, some rotating taps and some permanent taps. Very friendly service, even let people taste before they choose what beer to drink. Got two beers bottled, the rest is draught. Didn’t try the food. Nice selection of other beers. Got enough of their own beers on tap... knowledgeable and very friendly staff in for a chat. Fun to visit!
