Welcoming staff and a good choice of beers. Seemed to be popular with the locals which is always a good sign. Nice for a pre dinner and/or after dinner drink !

As my title says, great range of beers, good food, good views of sitting outside, great service and a good place to rest after a walk around the centre. Impressed as it was highly recommended.

Great atmosphere and beers. I visit Gent one a year and I always make sure I stop by this pub. The service can be a bit slow though...
