    Reasonable selection of Belgian beers but apart from Heineken and La Trappe could see no other Dutch beer on the menu
  • Nasko T.
    They do have tasty Belgian beers, but 2 of them + fries = £15 that's a bit too overpriced :( show stopper for me.
  • Radek C.
    Great beer from Belgium or Netherlands!

    Great selection of beers, something for most tastes. The trappist beer is a particular, lethal, favourite!

    Amazing selection of Dutch, Belgian and other continental beers right in heart of Chinatown. More likely to find a table upstairs rather than the crowded downstairs.

    The bartenders automatically add a £4 tip when you use a credit card. If you aren't paying attention when entering your PIN, by default you get charged. Very dodgy.

    Don your orange garb for De Hems is the heart of the Dutch community in London, and there will be nowhere better to watch Holland take on the rest of the world. Come early as you can't book ahead.

    Fairly unique and a good destination when other places in Soho are rammed. Dutch and Belgian beers, laid back place most of the time. Don't go for Bacchus, Liefmanns Kriek is far superior.

    Avoid at all costs! Rude sexist and homophobic staff. 3 or more people are automatically rejected. Staff trained to lie. There is "no duty manager ever", they refuse to abide by legal requirements
  • Harrison N.
    Surprisingly good selection of Dutch and Belgian beers to be found here. Pints of Vedett Extra White with a slice of Lemon/Lime go down incredibly well - VERY easy to drink.

    If you're in Soho, this is one of your best bets for seats in a decent pub (though you may have to head upstairs).

    Gets really busy in the evening so try and arrive by 6 if you want a table. The upstairs area has some cosy sofas which are great for chilling out.
