We were there this evening. Unfortunately, we couldn't watch the match with Zenith, but we spent there very good time. The owner was very polite with us. Everybody who will be in Bruges must try this place once at least.

Great little bar, locals and staff very friendly and helpful. You will be spoilt for a choice of beer as Belgium has 100's and the zandloper has a vast selection of these. Very close to bus and train connections. Will be going back as soon as possible

Called in August on the night of a real wrath of God thunderstorms. I picked from trip advisor reviews an proximity to my hotel, the NHS Bruges. A steady stream of customers and a nice selection of beers. The barman recommended Golden Carolus Tripel and I would recommend it and the bar to you.

Great selection of beers and pleasant staff. Looked to have limited bar snacks but we didn't eat. Nice to sit outside and watch the world go by but decent enough inside as well. Will return.

We just arrived in Bruges and needed a few bottles to fill the freezer. The bartender was very friendly and willing to help a tourist in need of advice.

Great little pub on the edge of the old town. Lots of good beers to choose from and very friendly staff. It is not a tourist pub and probably all the better for it.

A cosy Tap House with a trendy decor located on the corner of the busy 't Zand. Enjoy and spend some time on the sunny terrace, and taste one of the 18 beers on draft.
