Rerate: visited again a couple of times this year. Quite poshy atmosphere, will probably always stay that way. Outside they have a nice patio alongside the street, but the best is next to the canal. More tourists will be there in summer and it is a nice place to hang out. Quite decent food available as well as very nice finger food (bittergarnituur), although it is not cheap. Beers are mainly German and Belgian styled and although not very interesting, decently made. I prefer their Ouwe and Jonge Daen, which are the hefeweizen and kristallweizen. Service is ok, mostly quick. Dont count on knowledge about the beers more than basic style. About 4 of their beers usually available. Decent place.
Original rating: Quite poshy people are coming here. Very nice to give a party inside, but not for getting a beer with your friends.
Great loaton and beuatiful building / interior. One could easily think oneself a lord at his castle, after few beers. Service is friendly, bit slow. Not too crowded on tuesday afternoon, but have seen this palce packed at end of the week. Beers are OK, not outstanding. Good place to remember. Not all beers available.
Gone Along on weekend with my girlfriend a lovely looking castle on the canal with inside a nice cozy café with 6 own beers on tap , the service was good but nothing more the beer dubbele daen I ’ve been drinking was reasonable Certainly the effort to go along if you’re in the neighborhood
Good ’castle’ atmosphere with high ceilings, big chandeliers and paintings depicting all sorts of posh Renaissance conviviality. Quite a busy and noisy place on a saturday afternoon. Beer selection consists of a number of their own beers, I had a fairly mild IPA and a decent Stout. Prices are on the high side as expected for a place on the canal. Will return on a less crowded afternoon to try the other beers.

It’s true what they say; posh people are coming there. However, if you just go and enjoy one of there own brews -outside in the sun by the canal-, its a nice place. The beers are decent and they’re not overly expensive, service is good... Just don’t mind the other customers too much.
