This bar specialises in draught and bottled foreign beers and ciders. Easy access from the back of 'The Fountain'. Some good beers with good food served at the weekends. Not open until 4pm on a weekday - 11am Saturday. Lacked atmosphere when we were there, light and airy but no real 'buzz'!

Came here some time ago and wanted to give it another go as was disappointed by both the stark decor and the rude staff. Well they have done a bit to try and make it more "soft" but it doesn't hang together. Grey and dull with no imagination - cheap and half hearted. The restaurant is totally lacking in atmosphere....

Found nestled away in leek this bar is a great place for a couple of leffe blondes, affligems or a whisky or gin board. And the fish and chips are fabulous. Some great whiskys and unusual,gins which can be taken with different fruits. So happy we have this in our little town

Afflegem Beer in here is a great drink. This is worth a five star 👍 6.8% at £2.70 per drink. The locals are friendly and Den Engel is at the heart of Leek Town Centre.

The bar has a tapas day on the first Sunday of each month. You can have 3 for £10, or £4 per portion. We visited mid-afternoon and there was just one of the choices which had run out. We had 9 in all and whilst they were very nice, they are perhaps a bit over-priced for the portion size. I... More

There has been a recent refurbishment which has been long overdue but the owners seem to be clawing the cost of this back through their extortionate prices. I had a half pint of Dark Star at my last visit and it was £2.50 making it £5 a pint. Anywhere else this would be £3.50 for a pint and I pay... More

As a fan of Belgium beers I was taken aback whilst exploring Leek town centre to stumble across a Belgium beer bar. As it was a late afternoon I popped in and asked the lady owner if she minded me bringing my 7 yr old daughter in with my wife. The welcome was very warm and friendly (surprised by some... More
