Came here on a wet Sunday in November and my jugged hare with frites was the stand out dish of our 4-day holiday. Frites and beer good too. Rice pudding nothing special though.

What a find. Fabulous traditional food served with awesome beer. The staff are excellent and as we were a party of 13 they offered a limited choice and what a choice it was. I can wait to return

Found this little place just off the market square. Really friendly staff, great beer selection and about to sample the food. This is our third visit in 2 days, needless to say we love it! Well worth a visit.
