Visited on 10th December 2016. Tucked away down an alleyway this is a strange little place. Three floors linked together by steep stairs, the decor oozes character and hasn’t changed for years. It was really busy so had to go right to the top to get a table, service was pretty slow as a result with us seemingly ignored for some time, we persisted and got a beer, the quality was decent, prices good. The beer range was solid enough. Would go back and try it when a bit quieter.
Small restaurant-like bar hidden in a small street. Spread out on two floors which are connected by a steep staircase, totally focussed on beer, with lots of Belgian classics available, plus their superb house beer, a Tripel (?) at 11.5% abv, served along with some cheese. The only guests on this Monday afternoon were other beer geeks, and I could assume that mostly locals and those kind of people will visit this place as it’s so hard to find. So rather quiet but relaxed atmosphere, not that kind of boozer where you drink one beer after another. Really worth visiting, especially for the house beer!
Traditional old bar tucked away in an alley but pretty close to the Market Square. On 2 levels, getting up to the top level is via some wooden steps at the back of the pub. Pretty full on our visit, so the service suffered a little. There is a good vibe to the place but is quite touristy. The beer list wasn’t that impressive really, but I did want to try their own brewed beer, so worth a visit for that reason.
Old school brown pub hidden in some back alley, famous for its house tripel, of which you are allowed to consume one glass only. Atmosphere was warm and pleasant, service quick and effective, the beer served a bit too cold perhaps, but I would recommend this as an initiation to classic Belgian ale culture.
