“could be so much more”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

An ideal place for a drink, in winter and in summer. But I would not recommend food, what you get is not what you asked for and there are big questions about the hygiene. It could be so much more...

“A big pub with a good atmosphere and delicious beer”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

We didn't eat, we just stopped in for a beer. It's a barn of a place, but the decor and atmosphere are unpretentious and attractive and the overall effect is surprisingly cosy. There is a typically good selection of typically excellent Belgian bottled beers. The place has a reputation for being noisy, but when we went in the afternoon, it was busy without being heaving and it was perfectly possible to chat quietly. Very enjoyable.

“Can be raucous ...”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

..as it is a large, wooden-floored, high-ceilinged place full of younger people. Food varies around "good"; service again varies but go to the bar of they get distracted / ignore you too much. Reasonably good beer list & prices. Pop in for a drink.

“Umcomplicated, great value for money”
Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

Had a quick lunch: soup and sandwich of the week for 9 euros. Correct, uncomplicated and tasty! Nice relaxed setting with a very diverse clientele.

“little gem”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Came across this place by chance and wanted a coffee, lovely sunny day so went out into the courtyard, decided to eat instead. Had a great bolognese pasta dish, fresh, hot and good portion. along with a nice chilled white wine, a very enjoyable lunch. Attatched to the Cinema so perfect for a pre/after film drink, imagine popular with the youngsters.
