I have visited Leiden about 5 times over the past six years as I have friends living there. There are plenty of great places to eat and drink here, but this is probably my favourite.

Excellent decor and atmosphere inside. It's quite a big pub, perfect to meet with friends for a drink, the tea and coffee are also really good. We also had some food and we were really pleased with it. Well done.

Too many choices...but the bar staff will help you (with samples) with your choice of primarily Belgian beer. I found the atmosphere and the staff very inviting.
