You can spend all day in a museum or you can visit T'Brugs Beertje and enjoy the experience of trying any number of wonderful brews. My personal favorite that was spot on recommended by the server was "Averbode" an Abbaye selection. The menu for brews was extensive and there were definitely so many on offer you'd never run short of... More

We had fun trying to translate the menu and making the right choice. The service was great and their recommendations always on point. The place is lively and very welcoming, do stop by if you get a chance.

Always visit here, how can you go to Bruges and not? Laura and Tom behind the bar are amazing, sorry to the other guys but I don't think I caught your names (despite you knowing mine). And I never knew about the third room at the back. You'll always get a warm welcome here. Worth visiting for Beasty, great guy.

We had a couple of drinks in here and wished we could stay longer. This is not a high brow pub restaurant, this is a sawdust on the floor place to try the full range of Belgian beers (there are literally hundreds of them served here). It gets very busy in there. I was told by some fellow customers that... More

If you like Belgium beer (and who doesn't) this is the place to go. A brilliant old fashioned boozer with the most amazing selection of beers to choose from. Thankfully, the staff will guide you through it. This is well used by locals but tourists are made most welcome. Do not miss this pace!

Quite busy when we arrived, but managed to find a seat quite quickly. Menu was quite confusing, so just randomly selected something ( no real help given), partner had the special brew (we werent impressed think its an acquired taste!) it was ok but we left after that one drink to go to another bar we'd much preferred (Red Rose)

Perhaps it was because it was March but I found the bar relaxed and half full. The very long list of beers is in Dutch so it's best to ask the bar staff for help if you're new to all this. It's small, cosy, covered in beer paraphernalia and the staff are cheerful and relaxed. There's a good restaurant De... More
