Nipped in here for a few during the festival. Staff were a decent bunch and dealt well with the crowds. The pub has a nice atmosphere and there are a variety of litte snugs to meet with your buds. I loved the bedded area where u can have your pint lying down without ur gf complaining that ur drinking in bed and that ur an alcholic...and shes leaving you. My mate tells me they play movies on the projecter which sounds loverllllly. Will def be back for a decent priced heverlee in the future!

This is a small pub which offers a range of draft beer including some hand pumps. Prices are good eg £3.30 a pint. Staff were pleasant and welcoming. There are a couple of tables outside and various seating options inside including a quirky "lounge" where they show films in afternoons.

If you want bar in the student area in town then look no further.

No bad prices but crisps are a ripoff.Good selection of beers with decent atmosphere.

Good music in the background.Opposite the festivval theatre.

Went there on Sunday night. Thought it would be a slow and quiet night. It turned out to be one with big crowded. It's a small place but very nice. The two staff at the bar were pretty friendly too!

the last time i was here was over 10 years ago, but i will be back often now, great looking pub, quirky and really nice bar staff and oh! they had my favourite cider as well, only minus mark from me is the sort of mixed sex toilets at the back of the pub.
