    Noisy and full of middle class nonsense

    It's dreadful - not a great favourite with locals but loved by visiting middle class people

    One of my favorite places in London have a pint and a bite to eat. I love all the warm stews and soups on the menu. They also have my favorite Belgian beers on tap and the service is always excellent!

    Very specialist beer selection in a little alleyway in Clerkenwell. Always mega busy after office working hours.

    Dangerous! Has a wide selection of great (and high ABV level) beer. Also good on the small bites.

    If you like Belgian beer this is the place to come. It gets booked up quite fast so if you're thinking of having lunch here then book ahead.

    Lovely hidden gem of a bar, excellent beers & service as well as the food looking amazing, sorry but I can't rate it though as I didn't eat here.

    Better than your average pub food (a bit pricier than your average pun too, but worth it) - a vegetarian menu can be found too. A plus is also the relaxed atmosphere of the neighbourhood.

    Food is standard. Boar burger was excessively big, Chips were out the freezer. Atmosphere was non-existent. 2 stars.

    Too many people here drinking pints of Jupiler, which is just the Belgian Carling... be brave, go off the reservation and have a Delirium Tremens!

    Come for lunch! There's no one at all there, and the staff are super-friendly and helpful when they're not busy. And the beer and food are just as awesome in a deserted pub as they are in a packed one

    I had the ostrich burger - pretty good in focaccia bread. Excellent selection of Belgium beer, not so much Belgium food, but still worth checking out

    This is meant to be the best Belgian Pub in London with a ridiculous selection of beers on draught and in bottle. Read more

    Sample as many of their Belgian beers as you dare while shovelling down a massive bowl of mussells and chips.
