Small brown cafe, blink and you will miss it, but staff always have a friendly smile and it's very cosy. Some great local and imported beers plus good pub food.

Looked in here on a cold, very cold, April evening. Great atmosphere. Friendly guys running the place. Simple but good pub food. Good beer. What more can I say? Oh, yes they speak Dutch as well as they speak English. And live music.
