Most of the time very busy. It is a small cafe but I guess it is allright. I liked some beer, but overall not that very special beers.

We visited Tapperij Het Veulen on Monday 25th September 2017, clearly a reliable standby on a Monday as most of the other cafes were closed today, though to be fair the Thornbridge bar was an unexpected one day closure. Tapperij Het Veulen is located on the western side of the city centre on a small street called Korenbrugstraat that is essentially a row of Café bars about 5-6 in all, Tapperij Het Veulen is in the middle of these. It's a pretty quick walk from either the market place/centre or the train station which is slightly further west.

It would have been nice to have sat outside and people watched but all of the seats were taken so we went inside. Btw why on the continent do many folk do this thing of sitting in lines facing outwards, it makes me chuckle, it's like you're at the cinema. It's a fairly traditional layout, long and thin, toilets at far end bar taking up most of the LH side with seating at front and then running down the RH side. Wooden floors and in fact mostly wooden interior was the look with a lot of pub memorabilia, enamel signs, news cuttings, old photos etc.

The barman was very busy and singlehandedly kept everyone served until colleagues turned up, one of which who we chatted to as we left appeared to be the owner or manager. The beer choice leant heavily on the Belgian classics with one or two guest's on tap, so I guess to be expected for an ABT cafe. We quite liked it here but would have preferred to have sat outside.

Nice old fashioned bar, varied tap list with a few interesting choices, including a house beer. Usually quite busy, it is in a bit of a busy area of town.

Nice bar in Den Bosch centre. Nice IPA of the house, service is ok, staff is friendly. Might offer a few new ticks. Worth a quick visit when in the neighborhood.

Hosts know their beers. Plenty of choice, but nothing too special.

Nice old fashioned bar with fairly generic beer range. Worth visting, but not worth going out of your way.

At least the people working here know their beer, which is always a good thing. ABT cafe with some special things on tap, including a Jopen tap that always has something. Not as lively and varied as Bar Le Duc two doors down but another good beer place in Den Bosch.

Small old bar, next to cafe Bar le Duc. When it’s nice weather, everybody sits outside. Very nice. Good beer, most of them the regular belgian beers. Friendly staff. Cheese platter was ok, no trappist cheeses though. They are also attached to the ABT, which means frequently changing tap beers.
