Lovely decor inside. Beer selection isn’t great but there were a couple of interesting bottles. Fair prices despite being on the main tourist route from the train station

Big and beautiful place in the tourist stretch heading from the central station. The decor is fantastic, deep brown wood everywhere, Art Deco lights and huge stained glass ceiling. Very inviting. Beer selection is fairly small, they have cask pumps but most were off, including their own beer when I visited. Service was quick, polite and friendly and the prices although high, were still better than Netherlands standards.
Spacy yet relatively quiet English pub in the busy centre of Antwerp. Quick and friendly service. The only pub serving that Martin’s Real Ale, apart from other John Martin products (which I’m not a fan of) and several bottled English classics (Fuller’s, Shepherd Neame). Not comparable with a real English pub in England of course, but still rather interesting, though I could not spend a whole afternoon here.
Pleasant and calm place in the afternoon, with relaxing music, liberty interior. Besides the house beer there is no reason to come here: all other beers are widely available, and their thing of rebadging beers is very annoying.
Contrived, expensive and pointless. The equivalent of ’Belgian’ cafes in London and fake Irish pubs the world over. If you want real ale go to Britain. There are far, far better places to drink beer in Antwerp.
