Came in after a hard day shopping and needed a glass of wine. My husband was gobsmacked to find over 200 beers. My wine was fruity and chilled a Sauvignon I believe. My husband found a beer called Troubadour Manma which was recommended by the staff and he probably had more than he should. Attentive staff and beautiful Belgian themed... More

Popped in yesterday for a couple of drinks and a snack before heading over to see School of Rock opposite. Very wide choice of Belgian beers and good menu. Some beers up to 12%! Staff all friendly and helpful, and wonderful sweet potato chips. Will definitely visit again when in the West End.

This restaurant has character, atmosphere, excellent food and an incredible selection of Belgian craft beers, which makes it a diamond in the heart of the West End. Try one of the 12 types of fruit beers if you fancy something really light and tasty. However if you're in the mood for Belgian beers heavily laced with alcohol, then there's a... More

We found this when searching for breakfast, which was very enjoyable, but we returned after dark for a few very enjoyable beers. They have a great beer menu of Belgium beers.

I hosted a large party upstairs in the mezzanine area at this interesting Belgian beer café near Covent Garden, which was simply fantastic! The mezzanine provides a great private location overlooking the usual Friday night buzz at Lowlander. The staff were very accommodating throughout the evening - the Belgian food and drink were simply wonderful, offering alternative variety and tastes... More
