A very nice pub

This place attracts young and old, the atmosphere is always really relaxed and the service is good. A nice bonus is that they serve a wide range of special beers here as well, from local brews to the more classic Belgium beers. A great place to hang out with your friends on a Saturday afternoon.

Perfect place for a drink after a nice dinner
Apr 2017 • Couples
Perfect place for a drink after a nice dinner in Nijmegen. We were lucky to arrive and find immediately a nice spot in the middle of the pub. Diversity of people, young, older ( like us) blended all well together. We could have a good chat with nice music which was not too loud. Terrace always full of people.

Samson is a nice Dutch bar with an excellent selection of beers on tap. Nice terrace (but it stinks a bit inside...)

Great spot, Awesome beers
May 2016 • Couples
Unique, homey feel in this bar. The beer menu is great with local beers as well as many Belgian and German varieties. The waiters were friendly and very patient with my poor attempt at ordering in Dutch. 10/10 would return. Great to have a few drinks and a chill night.

Great cafe with a lot of beers on tap.

This is one of Nijmegen's finest bars. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They can tell you a lot about beer. They always have new beers on tap/bottle. Rated number 10 on the top 100 list of best bars in The Netherlands. Worth a visit! Cheers!

British pub-like atmosphere, varied food and great beers
Nov 2013 • Solo
When you are standing at the small front of this restaurant, you will be pleasantly surprised by the space after entering Samson Cafe. First there seats at the window, then the bar with many mouthwatering beers of draft, next seats in front of a huge mirror and finally seats in a room featuring a Dutch national soccer team shirt with lots of autographs, like Arjen Robben. To me the atmosphere in Samson Cafe evokes the Birtish pubs, very pleasant. The waitress was nice but very busy, fortunately I got my beer on draught (Gyle Bock) and tapas (shrimps, stuffes olives and chirizo with goat cheese) pretty quickly, delicious! Highly recommended, especially to beehunters, there was a huge list with great bockbeers on draught and bottle.

Beers that suit many a drinkers palate with style
Aug 2013 • Friends
When one is a traveller it is important to find a watering-hole that is friendly, has a sense of atmosphere, and can make you feel at home. At the Cafe Samson in the centre of Nijmegen I can tick all thse boxes. Currently I am enjoying a German light brown ale. Right for summer days. As the Dutch weather gets more water-cold I shall seek a cosy place inside and seek out Belgium Trappist beer directly from the tap. Those old monks certainly knew who to show one a pleasurable way to heaven. I would call the Cafe Samson, a brown pub-an application for an Amsterdam smokers public house. It takes time to see the smiling bar girls when they suggest that the home-made apple pie is on the menu. A cosy atmosphere and on the walls pictures and old advertising tin plates. One for Black CAT cigarettes in the days of smokers, which I can tell with delight to my Dutch friends how when I was young I lived close to the factory in Camden Town, London with its ancient Egyptian facade and two black cats sitting at the entrance. It is always good to have a pint of beer for the telling of a tale. Once a year, complete with music Cafe Samson has beer festival plus deliciious snacks and -----oh, I have lost count of some one hundred different beers. Glad that today there is no tobacco smoke anymore. Otherwise I would not be able to complete this review because it is too cold outside. This excellent hostelry is close to the Plein 42. A square that once had a pleasant city garden now lost due to the erection of tasteless private developers expensive flats to block the light and lean over what is now bus halt. Meanwhile Cafe Samson keeps its sense of place.
