About the Pub

To the left, upon entering at street level, is a light and airy gin bar and brasserie; straight ahead and down the stairs is the 'Cellar Bar', a warm, cosy area with several leatherette booths down one side while slightly to the right and centre is a half octagonal dark wood bar with 'two sets of four' hand-pumps serving a good selection of cask ale and cider, plus 'two sets of four' lager style pumps, serving a nice selection of Belgian and Belgian-style keg beers. There is also a very good selection of bottled beer - Belgium and 'craft' beers. Furnishing is completed with a selection of two, four, and six to eight person high tables around the room; set in the rear wall are two large booth style areas that will accommodate some twenty odd people at a time, ideal for a 'group' gathering.

The food is Belgian inspired, with baked pastries, moules, frites, and specialities such as marinated ribs and Flemish stew. The hours above refer to any part of the bar, though at lunchtime only the upstairs bar may be open (real ale will be fetched from the cellar bar), and during evenings the upstairs bar may close.

The cellar bar features a blues DJ on weekend evenings and live music. The bar often features 'Tap Takeovers' with such breweries as Brouwerji and Vibrant Forest, as well as a regular beer tasting evening.
